Matt Wheeler, LPC, CSAT
Areas of Specialty:
During my growing up years I was afraid to let others know that my family was in therapy, as there was often negative stigma and stereotypes attached to it. Gratefully, getting help from a mental health professional today is more widely accepted. I can only hope the fact that I’ve spent time “on the couch” will mean I understand what you may be feeling and that you are not alone.
I strongly believe that we are not meant to be alone in this life. Sadly, many of us suffer difficulties that leave us feeling isolated and on our own. As a therapist I quickly gravitated to attachment work and I love to help individuals, couples, and families learn to connect and attach securely to each other. I have extensive training and practice in emotionally focused therapy (EFT) which is the “gold standard” for this attachment work. I am also a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT), and at Family Strategies Counseling Center I am a supervisor for intern student therapists. I have been a practicing mental health clinician since 2012.
Since 2002 I have been lucky enough to be married to a wonderful woman, and together we are raising three awesome and challenging children. As a family we have experienced many things including adoption, ADHD, and autism. Needless to say, our family is also well acquainted with therapy. I love cycling, hiking, and camping. Recently I have been involved in triathlons and, since I don’t like wearing shoes, I have an extensive and unique collection of socks.
