BACKGROUND OF MATTHEW MATT LINDGREN OAKLAND DEPRESSION THERAPIST
In Oakland, California Matthew Matt Lindgren has a private clinical practice where he treats people suffering from depression and anxiety, and also provides couples therapy.
Matthew Matt Lindgren's approach to treating depression disorders differs from many other therapists in its eclectic and practical approach. Mr. Lindgren is trained and has experience in a wide variety of techniques that help with panic and anxiety which may be described as cognitive behavioral and somatic therapy:
- EMDR - eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
- Exposure therapy and systematic desensitization
- Progressive counting
- Behavior Modification
- Cognitive Therapy
- Somatic Therapy - specifically Somatic Experiencing
Matthew Matt Lindgren uses techniques that are both tried and true as well as those fairly new to psychotherapy to treat panic attacks. Some of the techniques listed above, such as EMDR, have a tremendous amount of empirical evidence to demonstrate efficacy, while others, such as Progressive Counting, are new and promising techniques that are doing well in case studies but have yet to be formally studied in larger populations. Mr. Lindgren is extremely dedicated to finding the right technique or combination of techniques to help his clients heal and recover from panic and anxiety.
Matthew Matt Lindgren holds a license to practice Marriage and Family Therapy from the State of California, #46949. He graduated from New College of California with a master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Social Justice.
