Matthew LeBeau, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) as well as being EMDR – Certified, is joining Burning Tree West.

Matthew has worked with co-occurring disorders and treated clients with trauma and substance use disorder. Matthew is married, both he and his wife are in recovery and active in 12 step fellowships.

The length of time that clients are engaged with us at Burning Tree West allows for EMDR to be used as an appropriate and effective tool in treating trauma and some of the underlying causes of addiction. EMDR is a non-pharmacological alternative to help treat trauma and related disorders.

EMDR assists the brain in processing trauma and issues related to stress. Consequently, clients are better able to cope with stressful situations as they prepare to transition back into their lives.
