Matt Dwight MS, LAMFT
Matt is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (temp.) at Crossroads Counseling.
Relational health has always been a priority to Matt both personally and vocationally. He has a passion for walking alongside individuals, couples and families who feel stuck, lost, or even hopeless. Getting married at a young age has also allowed him to develop a unique perspective regarding some of the struggles that are more specific to young couples and newlywed transitioning.
Matt integrates his Christian faith with therapy by establishing a peace in couple and family relationships reflecting shalom. This means everything in its rightful place, as God intended. In order to reach this peace he will walk with couples and families as they learn about each other and help to foster a compassion that can only come from understanding the emotions and heart behind our partners and family. This level of understanding ourselves, our partner, and close others has been the most impactful change in Matt’s own life and he desires to share this with others.
Matt completed a year long internship at Crossroads Counseling and has obtained a temporary license from the AZBBHE until he is eligible for his Associate’s License. Matt has completed an externship for his preferred model of EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy). He has six years of training and education in the field of mental and behavioral health, and has worked with at-risk middle school students as well as high school boys. He approaches therapy from a systems perspective and utilizes EFT and attachment theory with couples and families.
Matt completed his MSMFT from Fuller Seminary and previously attended Arizona State University where he completed his Bachelor of Science degrees in both Psychology and Family and Human Development.
