Professional statement

Dr. Matthew McCall is a Licensed Psychologist located in Denver, Colorado. He works primarily with individual adults, helping them face and overcome a wide variety of psychological difficulties. Dr. McCall is not frightened by the severity of his patients' symptoms or suffering, and finds the greatest satisfaction when facilitating a life-changing experience within therapy.

Dr. McCall works within a treatment framework called Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), in which he has received over three years of post-doctoral training and supervision. This form of treatment sounds complex, but is simple at its core. Dr. McCall works in close collaboration with the patient to identify the frightening and painful feelings that he or she wards off without realizing it, and then helps them face these feelings, release them, and learn from them. Dr. McCall believes that all patients can be helped, and that therapy should aim at a complete resolution of symptoms and a full and happy life.

Dr. McCall is a focused and careful therapist who avoids wasting his patients' time. He cares deeply about the people he works with, and spends time continuing to learn and enhance his skills. While Dr. McCall thinks about patients from the framework of ISTDP, he is tuned in to each patient and flexible in his approach. He always does his best to connect with his patients, and to maintain a trusting relationship throughout the course of therapy. He delights in each patient's growth.

Dr. McCall has a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, and over 8 years of experience working with patients. He is currently seeing patients over video and in person.


Message to clients

Life can be rough, I have no illusions about that. Even so, I really believe that good therapy can change lives. You may have tried therapy before and found it unhelpful, or you may be sitting on the fence, unsure what you'd be getting yourself into. I get that, I've been there too. All I can say is that I really am hopeful. Honestly hopeful. I believe that almost every client can be helped, and that with the right therapist (and therapy), you can be helped too.

Therapy can help you get to know yourself in a very special way. It's unlike anything else. In sessions, you may find yourself feeling completely new feelings and finally gaining insights into very old and confusing patterns. While therapy is hard work, I believe that it's truly and deeply worthwhile.

This is not work that anyone can do alone. We don't know what we don't know, and we simply can't get much perspective on our own selves. Mindfulness and other forms of meditation can be very good, but ultimately they won't expose our blind spots. An attentive, kind, and well trained therapist makes this type of work possible, although only you can make the decision to face and heal the most painful parts of yourself.

I hope to meet you, and to help you in whatever way I can.
