Matthew Rascone

Intern Counsellor

MA in Counselling Psychology (ongoing)

My name is Matthew Rascone. I am an intern counsellor at Blue Oaks Counselling and Wellness. I am currently completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. Previously, I obtained a Bachelor of the Arts in Communications from Temple University and a Master of the Arts in English from St. Joseph’s University, both in Philadelphia.

When supporting my clients, I bring a lot of life experience to the counselling room. Prior to my studies in Counselling Psychology, I worked in several sectors and lived abroad in Asia and Europe. I am also a father to a young daughter. It is my work, family, and life experience that taught me more than any textbook could illustrate. I bring this knowledge into to the counselling sessions and hope that I can help you reach your goals.

For the past three years I have been working in addictions recovery at an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. Having worked with many clients and their families in the throes of addiction, and witnessing addiction in my own family, I’ve come to understand the psychological and physical toll it exacts. In addition to my work in addictions, I have worked with individuals who have intellectual disabilities.
