Hello, my name is Matthew Dunton, LICSW. I have 8+ years of experience providing clinical treatment to diverse populations including children and families, substance use, adolescents, and young adults.

During treatment, I will work with you to develop concrete skills that can be practiced in session and eventually be used in your daily life. We will also work on creating a treatment plan goal that works for you based on your needs and capabilities.

The start of treatment can be intimidating, so I try to provide a safe, welcoming, and private environment to help ensure a comfortable beginning of the therapeutic process.

I strive to create a collaborative effort through sessions in order to solidify the therapeutic relationship. Utilizing solution-focused therapy, I work with my clients to determine what their treatment goals are and process with them what is manageable and attainable for them.

I have worked in community mental health previously with DCYF indicated families. I have done individual work with children, parents, as well as both in a family therapy environment.

My special interests are anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief.
