About Dr. Mathew

I founded Wellness 360 in 2014 and serve as the director of the organization. After practicing psychotherapy for over a decade, I have learned that a holistic approach which engages both the mind and the body is optimal for healing. My view of holistic wellness includes a focus on examining how our everyday lives align with our true values and needs. When we are disconnected from our authentic selves we become unwell. With this view in mind, I envisioned creating a practice that focuses on the complete wellness of mind, body, and spirit. We are all capable of learning how to live well in our bodies and experience the joys of connected living.

I earned my Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Fordham University and a Master of Science Social Work degree from the University of Texas at Austin.  Prior to founding Wellness 360, I was a clinical associate professor at the University of Wisconsin and served as the director of a community mental health training clinic.  I have also worked in a variety of treatment settings including university counseling centers, community mental health services, schools, and a psychiatric hospital. Currently, I maintain my specialty in supervision and teaching by serving as a community supervisor for a local clinical psychology doctoral program, working as an adjunct professor, and by providing a postdoctoral fellowship in my practice. Additionally, I facilitate trainings on clinical and diversity issues. I also served as President and Treasurer of the Collin County Psychological Association and am currently an executive board member. 

I work with clients in treating depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, trauma/abuse and negative self-image. My specialties include working with couples and women’s issues including infertility, post-partum, sexual trauma, and body image issues. I have a special interest in working with persons of diverse backgrounds including sexual orientation/gender identity, ethnic/religious groups, disabilities and immigration status. After working extensively as a diversity trainer, I have an appreciation for the challenges faced by these groups.
