First Line Counseling, LLC was established in 2018 and proudly serves clients in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Owner, Matthew Frasca, has a dual career. First and foremost, he is a veteran 18 year, active duty police officer. He is also a mental health counselor.
Matt earned his masters degree from Johns Hopkins University. He discovered a growing demand for male therapists and counseling services in general. His dream was to continue his passion for community service in the field of mental health counseling that specializes in supporting our first responders. His vision for the first responder community was to break the stigma of therapy and provide support to his first responder brothers and sisters. In addition to helping first responders, Matt’s intrigue with Child-Centered Play Therapy led him to devote many hours enhancing this expertise. His easy-going, humorous rapport with children and adolescents has made him well-liked and highly regarded.
Matt has quickly expanded First Line Counseling by building an exceptional team of therapists. Each First Line therapist offers something slightly different, yielding top-notch counselors.
