Distress from emotional pain blocks success, happiness, self-esteem and the full experience of living. Resolving issues underlying symptoms brings lifetime rewards. Successful therapy depends on a correct assessment and treatment plan. Tailoring the appropriate treatment to patient needs is the initial focus, assuring a safe place and process to heal and bringing lasting improvement is the ultimate goal. Our practice also provides treatment to persons struggling with creative blocks as well.

Matthew Swan is now an in-network provider Carefirst BCBS PPO and United Health Care.
