Professional statement

Dr Matthew Syzdek is a clinical psychologist practicing in Minnesota and 28 states. He built a boutique practice that is tailored to the needs of busy professionals, stressed out college students, and adolescents struggling in high school.

Many therapists are overworked and burnt out. You deserve a specialist in a boutique practice who has the expertise, time, and mental space to dedicate to you and your treatment. Dr Syzdek’s specialties include the treatment of depression, relationship and interpersonal issues, anxiety, OCD, and men's mental health.

Dr Syzdek started treating depression as part of a large research study on behavior activation. Dr Syzdek tailors this approach to your life to help you figure out what is keeping you depressed and what about your life needs to change so you can once again feel enjoyment, accomplishment, and meaning in your day.

Research has also shown that relationship and interpersonal issues can keep you stuck and unhappy. Through years of training and thousands of hours with clients, Dr Syzdek is able to detect how other people experience you, so he can provide you unfiltered and authentic feedback about your interpersonal style. You then have the opportunity to practice other ways of relating to people.

With clients struggling with anxiety, worry, panic, or obsessions, Dr Syzdek integrates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy combined with exposure therapy to help people to confront their fears, worries, and obsessions so they can live a life beyond anxiety.

Dr Syzdek has been researching men's mental health and treating men and adolescent males for over 15 years. He helps men find meaning in their life that goes beyond just masculinity and coaches them to confront their problems so they can have more fulfilling relationships, career, families, friendships.

Message to clients

When selecting a clinician, it is important to know what experience and training they have. My prior experience spans levels of care and treatment settings. Most recently I was the Chief Clinical Officer at Lorenz Clinic. Prior to this I was a Director of Outpatient Mental Health for M Health Fairview. Fortunately, I was able to train with local and national leaders in psychology. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology at Clark University. I received masters degrees from Clark University and Boston College. Beyond psychology, I earned an MBA in Health Care at the University of St Thomas.

When selecting a treatment, it's important that's it's grounded in science and empathy. I will match you to the most effective therapy for your issue while individualizing a treatment plan to meet your specific goals and needs.

Some people think they may not be able to afford high quality and customized psychotherapy services. In fact, out of network benefits can often reimburse clients 50-60% of the charges. I will provide the documentation needed to help clients receive reimbursement, so clients don't have to sacrifice quality care.

If you want to start feeling better, schedule a complimentary consultation with me today. Since my boutique practice is small, I will be able to connect with you in the next day or two for a consultation, and you can have your first appointment within the next week.
