A Few Kind Words From Satisfied Clients

Working with Matt has been nothing short of life changing. Before we started counseling, our marriage was lacking understanding and true communication. Matt has opened our eyes, and has also given us the tools to have a happier and healthier relationship. Through Matt’s guidance, our bond has deepened, and it will continue to do so, as we have learned to communicate on each other’s level.

During our 5 hour Marriage Intensive, we were able to dissect our current and past stressors more so than what we accomplish in our weekly sessions. We were put into real life situations, and then were taught how to correctly navigate through them with out placing blame on one another. Since the intensive, we have found that it is much easier to overcome and work through challenges and differences than before.

The truth is, Matt does such a great job communicating with his clients that it always leaves us in a better place when we leave. He has helped to build our confidence, our love, and our overall well being. If you are considering counseling, our advice is to take the plunge. It will be the best the decision of your life.


Talking to Matt is like talking to a friend. He is so caring and funny as well as a gifted therapist.

Matt helped us see how our communication was hurting our relationship! He helped us listen to each others feelings without being defensive and saved our marriage!


Prior to seeing Matt Martin, I was not even sure what it was about my life that was making me unhappy. Through just a few sessions I understood the importance of his help. Over the course of the next several months, Matt helped me to explore the various parts of my life that had just been ignored but were having a lasting effect on my personal well-being.

I would’ve considered myself a fairly successful and healthy young adult but Matt’s non-intrusive but deeply reaching comments, examples, jokes and stories have been essential in helping me understand myself and relationships enough to find a truer sense of inner happiness and self-satisfaction.

His premarital intensive sessions are a great way to quickly and painlessly go through the essentials of communication, conflict resolution and ultimately rediscover the reasons for originally entering the relationship. I am happy to say that these sessions have strengthened our relationship and given us the tools to cooperatively build and maintain a loving marriage.
