Individual Counseling

For questions or appointments, contact me at 610-482-4496 or drmatthewspsych@gmail.com

I provide individual counseling or therapy to teenagers (ages 15+) and adults.  Individual therapy starts with an initial consultation, so that I can learn about your concerns, current situation, and relevant history, including any history of treatment.  For younger clients I may meet with the parents first to discuss your concerns and for us to see if I would be the right person to work with your child.

Sessions (50 minutes each) typically take place once per week, though they may be twice per week if indicated.  During this time we will work toward your goals in a confidential, supportive environment.  Partners or family members may be included if you wish or appropriate.  Sessions may taper off on a biweekly or monthly basis, until your goals are met.  Though you will complete treatment at some point, the door will always be open for you to return in the future if needed.

I see clients for many different concerns, who have a history of treatment, or who have never seen a therapist before. I tell clients upon the first meeting that it may take a session or two for us to get to know one another, but there is never an obligation to continue treatment, should you decide it is not the right time or that someone else could be a better fit. In the latter case, I am always happy to help you to find that person.
