About Mathew Wunsch

mat@texgibson.com

By harnessing an anti-oppressive lens, my goal in our work together is to contribute to the dismantling of systemic barriers you may face and ultimately empowering you to navigate your life with confidence and resilience. At the core of my practice is a drive to advocate for those in need, especially members of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, in order to create positive change in ourselves and our community as a whole.

As an individual who identifies as part of the LGBTQIA+ community in addition to being an adoptive dad of two, my work emphasizes my passion to the commitment of creating safe and affirming spaces for healing for you and/or your loved ones to feel comfortable talking about the uncomfortable. Our time together is a place to come as your authentic self without judgement or fear whether or not you know who you authentically are. Therapy is not a “one size fits all” scenario and you deserve a person-centered approach to your care that is tailored to your individual needs. My role as your therapist is to make sure your needs are being met and that you are working towards becoming the best and most authentic version of yourself.

I utilize therapy modalities that include but are not limited to Psychodynamic Therapy, Trauma Informed Care, somatic work, Solution Focused Therapy, and a Strength- Based Approach on areas you have identified you want to improve upon. I have experience working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, sexuality & sexual identity, substance use history, major life transitions, past traumatic experiences, and individuals struggling to find a balance between work life and personal life. I also have experience working with all relationship dynamics, including but not limited to, consensual non-monogamous relationships and polyamorous relationships. Other topics that can be explored are lack of intimacy and/or connection, kinks, and ways of improving interpersonal relationships.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and staying active. I enjoy running and am guilty of squeezing a work out between my therapy sessions. I also am an avid reality television viewer.
