Matt Tapia, Marriage & Family Therapist Associate in San Jose, CA


We all face challenges in our lives that can be overwhelming and painful. From my perspective, counseling is a collaborative journey that we embark on with the intent of discovering your strengths as well as finding tools to meet those challenges and overcome them. I consider it a privilege to join you on your first steps towards discovering your inner strengths and resilience. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe space to allow us to collaborate to identify the challenges you are struggling with and to identify patterns that may be roadblocks to becoming your best version of yourself.
I work with individuals, families, and couples who are experiencing anxiety, depression, crisis, at-risk adolescent behavior, stress, ADHD, autism, self-esteem, trauma, behavioral issues, and relationship needs. My approach is rooted in evidence-based practices integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), person-centered approaches, mindfulness, and behavior analysis.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at San Jose State University. I later graduated from Santa Clara University with my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have received training in behavior analysis, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness. Prior to joining Nugent Family Counseling Center, I worked at the non-profit organization Uplift Family Services, formerly EMQ, as a facilitator for their wraparound and crisis programs. I have also worked in schools as a clinician providing individual and group counseling. Throughout my years providing counseling, I have worked with a broad array of challenges with clients of all ages in private practice, schools, and in the community. Currently, I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and I am registered in the state of California as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I am supervised by a Licensed Therapist. My supervisor is Carlos Aguila, PPSC, MPH, LCSW #75033.
