Matt Tapia, LMFT, BCBA
Owner and Therapist


Hello there, I'm Matt Tapia, a licensed therapist (LMFT) and behavior analyst (BCBA, LBA) that specialized in working with neurodiversity challenges and gifts

My Clients

My areas of focus include helping adults, children, adolescents, families, and couples who are living with Autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, crisis, stress, self-esteem issues, career/work issues, relationship issues, and limiting beliefs.


I specialize in helping people living with neurodiversity such as Autism, ADHD, and OCD live their best lives and achieve their goals. 

My Approach

It is important that when you come to therapy, you have someone that truly cares about you and is actually interested in your life experiences. I'm here to help you gain an understanding of yourself - your dreams, values, passions, and experiences.

Similar to the guidance that Harry received from Dumbledore,  Frodo received from Gandalf or Luke from Obi-Wan and Yoda, I will join you in your journey together towards living your best life.

About Me

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. Previously, I worked at the non-profit organization Uplift Family Services, 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), a Certified Professional Life Coach (CPC) and I am licensed in the states of California and Arizona as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I am also licensed in Arizona as a Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA).
