Matt Sessoms is licensed by the State of Texas as a Professional Counselor and a Marriage and Family Therapist. His goal as a counselor is to assist clients in identifying how to navigate and overcome distress they experience in their personal and interpersonal lives. A tie that binds all humans together is that we exist in relationship; Genesis 2:18 states that it is not good for man to be alone. It is often in relationships, either with ourselves, God, or others, that we experience our greatest joys and pains. If you are living out a lack of intimacy in your life, your marriage, or your family, Matt would like to know how he can help you renew deep, meaningful relationships in your life.
