Dr. Matise is a Professional Counselor and Addiction Specialist. He is a professor of counseling and psychology and specializes in treating trauma,  spiritual crisis, and identity issues. He has a private practice in which he practices individual and couple's therapy. His vision is to help others along their healing journey by providing a compassionate presence. "My role is not to lead or follow, but to walk along side those who are committed to learning about who they are and why they are here." Finding meaning and a sense of identity are what give people a purpose and hope to move forward in their life. This is a continuous process which needs re-visiting and re-membering of who one was and who one is becoming. Psychotherapy is a spiritual process in which, like the lotus flower, one's life unfolds through discipline and intentional reflection. Psych means "soul"  and psychotherapy is soul-work.
