Matthew Dean



      Hello! My name is Matthew Dean and I am a Resident in Counseling. I am excited to tenderly explore your story with curiosity as you seek growth and healing. I have experience working with people who want help with depression, anxiety, trauma, LGBTQ issues, and faith-based counseling. In a therapy session there is room for everything you are feeling. Through awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and bodies, change can begin to occur. I believe the therapeutic relationship of the counselor/client is uniquely suited to facilitate that change.

     I am passionate about working with adults and teenagers who are seeking help and guidance in moving through whatever their struggles are. I pull from several theories, including Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment Theory. Our time will be trauma-informed, meaning we'll pay special attention to the stories of harm that have shaped the way you see and interact with the world. As a gay man, I understand that your unique and often hidden experiences matter.

     I received my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Messiah University and my Bachelor's degree in Communications from Houghton University. Before jumping into the counseling world, I worked in athletic administration while coaching soccer and basketball. Whether in person or virtually, I look forward to being with you.
