I work exclusively with couples and families in need of assistance navigating their relationships. I believe as a marriage and family therapist counselor and relationship coach, it is my job to be a co-pilot that assist you and your partner through the storms of conflict, infidelity, and life’s transitions such as premarital engagement, marriage, divorce, alcohol and substance use, childrearing, job and entrepreneur growth, and retirement. My approach to therapy is genuine, and I value the opportunity to be a part of change that offers you peace, insight, and tranquility. In addition to implementing best practice treatment modalities and utilizing my training as a marriage and family therapist supervisor (LMFT-S), and licensed clinical addiction specialist (LCAS), I also lean on my ability to empathize with my clients as a fellow relationship partner who has been married for 15 plus years with three kids.
Upon submitting your therapy request form, I will contact you for a consultation call to determine if I will be a good fit for you and your partner, refer to the “What should you expect during your free consultation call with Chris A. Matthews” video below in the Q&A section. I sustain a client case load of less than seven appointments per week to ensure all of my clients obtain the highest quality of care. Upon hiring me as your relationship counselor you and your partner will both be given access to several resources including relationship assessments, invitations to join a private online couple’s support community, discount rates on future couples retreats and workshops, and admission into several of my online relationship courses (https://relationshipcounselingtools.com/) which will be used for your homework assignments. My current rates for relationship therapy and coaching are $250 for a 60-minute session and $375 for a 90-minute session. I do not take insurance (refer to the question-and-answer section below to learn why) however, my clients commonly use their health savings account cards or credit/debit cards to cover the service fee. I also require that the first session be scheduled for 90 minutes so we will have time to establish a rapport and implement some solution focused interventions.
