My husband and I brought our teenage son to Matthew Maynard when he was going through a particularly difficult time in his life and we had no idea how to help him. He was both angry and sad but had shut down, and was unable to express himself .Matt worked with him, and us along with him, and over a six-month period was able to help restore his confidence in order for him to be able to address stressful situations rather than shutting down. Matt helped him to have an awareness of his feelings and also to develop communication skills that will not only help him through his current issues, but that will help him effectively deal with problems and people throughout his life. We are so grateful for the support Matt provided, always going above and beyond to establish trust, to accommodate busy schedules, to incorporate a little humor, and most importantly to restore our son’s belief in himself.

Matt has given me back my family, my home and myself. We're a multi-generational family living together and Matt has been able to connect with all of us, young and old, guiding us as a family and as individuals through some pretty rough stuff. Matt is down-to-earth, straightforward and is never threatening or judgemental. He has a strong grasp of family dynamics and a wicked sense of humor! With his help we have begun to enjoy each other again. We have learned to communicate and to be respectful of each other. He stress and anger that was a daily part of my home life is gone. I individually am amazed at the changes I've made. I see myself now as a person with value. I've started treating myself with respect. I am learning to laugh at myself and not take life so seriously! He has shown me how I can live and not just survive. Matt knows how to really listen and his ideas and solutions are designed to fit into my life. He doesn't tell me what to do- shows me my options and always maintains that the choice of direction I take is mine. Matt is a top-notch therapist and I will be forever grateful for all of his help and insight. I have and will continue to highly recommend him to anyone.

Matt was a great motivator and kept me on track. He helped me to set goals and achieve them quickly, while also teaching me how to network for my career path. His flexible hours made it easy to work with him and he was always ready to help in any way he could. I highly recommend Matthew as a therapist or a coach, to anyone looking to enhance their career, as well as their relationships.

"Matthew is not just a therapist, he is a role model. With Matt I have developed a strong sense of self, clear sense of direction, and have learned how to not only love and respect myself more, but how to show that same love and respect to others. I have reached goals that I never believed were possible, including sobriety and quitting smoking. He is the most inspiring person in my life and has always exceeded my expectations. Matthew is motivating, professional, outspoken, loyal, dedicated, compassionate, and leads by example. He is truly genuine and has helped me to grow in all areas of my life, even areas I didn’t want to admit that I needed help in. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants to turn their dreams into a reality and who desires to discover themselves and reach their full potential!"
