More About Matthew Gryniewski-Peirson

Clinical Interests:

I am interested in the qualities that make people uniquely human such as meaning making, creativity, historicity, embodiment, cultural context, sexuality, and spirituality. I hope is that the impact of our time together is that one becomes a greater and more successful participant in their humanity and is able to overcome obstacles to their flourishing.

Clinical Approach:

My therapeutic approach is influenced by the narrative, existential, and EMDR traditions. I also have experience in applied behavioral analysis.


Endurance sports, music collecting, analysis of popular culture, volunteering, and asking questions.
