The maintenance or distribution of any list of clinicians who chose to indicate that they provide services to individuals with sexually abusive behavior problems does not constitute an endorsement or verification of the credentials of those individuals by MATSA or any of its members. Inclusion on a resource directory of providers on the MATSA website does not constitute a license to practice, a measure of competency of the professional whose name appears, or any form of endorsement. Similarly, non-inclusion does not signify a failure to meet such criteria, as well. Neither MATSA nor its membership bear any responsibility for the quality of services provided by individuals and/or agencies appearing on this list; this remains the responsibility of the individual provider.

Description of work provided and philosophy of working with this population:

  • Run a statewide program of community based services with 22 locations and 20 licensed, experienced clinicians.  We work with male and female reactive children, juveniles and adults. We see the work as complicated by the need to address and heal damaged individuals while holding them accountable for their abusive behavior toward others.  We address risk factors while encouraging healthy life goals and building attachment skills and experiences.  Juvenile work is unique as the juvenile’s character is still forming and malleable while adults must focus more on relapse prevention.  We advocate and utilize the containment model to whatever degree it is available.  We run programs in secure, transitional and community based settings. We are invested in helping to create a comprehensive approach to sex offender management.
