Matt Bishop, Post-Masters Fellow

M.Ed. (2019) Clinical Mental Health Counseling
I believe that a therapeutic experience is most transformative when it is collaborative, empowering, and tailored to the individual.  I aim to provide that experience by using a relational approach that is informed by each person’s unique culture and values.  I integrate this framework with evidence-based interventions grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
My clinical interests include anxiety, depression, identity development, interpersonal relationships, adjustment issues, and coping with trauma.  That being said, I conceptualize each individual using a wellness model where the focus is on the person as a whole and not limited to their identified problems or potential diagnoses.
