Mat Crawford, LPC

My name is Mat Crawford. I contract with Therapy for Families. I am a laid back, warm, and compassionate proponent for kindness and patience toward ourselves and others. I have been working as a licensed mental health professional since 2008. As a client-centered therapist I strive to meet you at whatever point you are in life and move forward at a pace you are comfortable with. I am passionate about utilizing good self-care to manage our mental health. While I don’t consider myself to have a faith-based approach to therapy, I do have an extensive background working with clients on incorporating faith/spiritual practices into a mental health care routine. I enjoy learning how your personal spiritual/religious beliefs and practices impact your life. I am fully open to working with people of any spiritual persuasion, including none. I have extensive experience working with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  • Anxiety
  • Grief and Loss
  • Stress Management
  • Career issues
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Burnout
  • Significant Life Changes
  • Spiritual/Faith based concerns


Seeking out help to initiate or cope with a change in life is a significant step. I am honored each time someone trusts me to open up about their lives and discuss changes they want for themselves. I commit to providing a safe place, void of judgment, to say out loud the stuff you think no one wants to hear, to try new things, and work toward becoming more of the person you want to be.


I earned a Bachelor’s of Psychology from Brigham Young University and my Masters in Counseling from Arizona State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Texas (#64506) Oklahoma (#6246) Missouri (#2019013522) and Louisiana (#7870). I work virtually in the state of Texas.
