MyGuide Certified Community Providers

Open Path

My name is Matthew Lunsford and I'm a licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I specialize in working with people that suffer from anxiety, phobias, and eating disorders. I also assist parents with improving their parenting skills and navigating challenging child and adolescent behaviors.

I am confident that I will help you learn to identify how the environment is impacting you or child’s behavior. I will teach you how to navigate through all of the obstacles you may face. Ultimately, our work together will teach you and your child how to identify new and challenging behaviors, resulting in a better outcome to achieve the life you seek.
