Matt Vaughn


I have been a practicing psychotherapist since 2007 and specialize in creativity, spirituality, and dream work.

"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.”

― Carl R. Rogers

I have extensive experience working with adolescents, young adults, & adults . My style is grounded in person-centered therapy but is also informed by CBT, psychodynamic, & transpersonal approaches.

I approach psychotherapy in a very down to earth manner, despite my deep theoretical grounding. I like to use humor because I truly believe: “if you’re laughing, you’re learning.” I am able to offer clients a deeper perspective of where their struggles originate, while also providing concrete steps on how to achieve their goals.

I have no doubt that I will be able to help you through your current struggles & I look forward to working with you.

Areas of Focus

A significant portion of my professional experience has been at psychiatric and addiction treatment centers, working at the Ridgeview Institute in Smyrna, Georgia and Red Oak Recovery in Asheville, North Carolina. Within these environments, I have worked with individuals and families struggling with a range of psychiatric and addiction issues. In addition, I have worked in a private practice setting since 2007.

I provide individualized care for patients with:

Favorite Books & Movies

I believe one good way to get to know someone is by seeing their favorite books, TV shows and movies.  Click here for some of my current and all time favorites.


Matt became an incredibly safe place for me to be able to give voice to or express everything happening inside my head. He has a lot of wisdom and guided me and many hard turns and testament to him I have grown and better at coping. Thank you.
Matt is really good at helping you ask the right questions of yourselves and internally guiding you through the darkness.
