Matthew Hyder, MA, LCPC, CADC 

I have a warm and open relational style that communicates value and worth to my clients. My goal is to elicit your own strengths to make the change that you want. Too much guidance takes away your own autonomy, and too little keeps you confused, but finding the balance is one of the keys to good therapy. My clients appreciate my client-centered and accepting style and most of my referrals come from previous client’s recommendations. I have extensive experience with addiction, codependence, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, OCD, perfectionism, and ADHD.
One particular specialty of mine is codependency. Many of us struggle with finding our own voice and need a nurturing environment to silence the overwhelming voices/demands around us. I understand this challenge and provide a venue to elicit your inner strength. Your voice, your feelings, and your story matters.
Another specialty I have is working with children and teens. Developmental changes combined with mental health issues present unique challenges for parents. My training in Motivational Interviewing and other evidence-based treatments assists in deescalating the commonly experienced power struggle felt in families and instead facilitates connection and discussion. 

Treatment Approach

My treatment approach is relationally focused and while pulling from eclectic therapies such as cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Additionally, am emotionally focused and utilized mindfulness-based (MBCT) and motivational interviewing.
