Matt Blakely, LCSW
Philosophy of Care
Matt Blakely is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 6 years of experience partnering with adult individuals who are faced with concerns or conditions related to dysfunctional relationships, faith-based dilemmas, anger, anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, and more.
Matt earned his Master's degree in Social Work from Boston College and takes a collaborative approach when working with clients. He enjoys assisting in strengthening relationships using an eclectic therapeutic approach, pulling from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Christian counseling techniques. Often, negative outcomes from our daily interactions with others can contribute to anxiety, loneliness, disconnection, or strain in relationships, and building improved communication skills can benefit a client’s wellbeing in many ways. Matt also works to understand religious/spiritual beliefs and practices, and when desired, integrates these into the treatment process.
He understands that experiences related to religion and spirituality can sometimes play a role in major difficulties in life, and can also contribute in powerful ways to a client’s growth and healing process. He integrates principles from solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and neuroscience into his sessions with clients. Matt believes each client can progress toward a vision of their ideal self and make desired changes to heal and build resilience.
