Frank J. Matone is a licensed psychotherapist and former professor of Sociology with an extensive background in individual and group treatment. Dr. Matone received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck/Hackensack, New Jersey campus. He holds a Masters in Social Work from New York University as well as Doctor of Human Sexuality and a Ph.D. in Clinical Sexology from The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, California.
Dr. Matone was a staff clinician Barnert Community Health Center in the Juvenile Sexual Behavior Program. He was soon promoted to Director, at which time he restructured and reorganized the program to better meet the needs of the community. Dr. Matone was awarded a grant by the Juvenile Justice Commission of New Jersey to provide the much needed services of the innovative program, which he developed, in a new and more expansive environment at a convenient downtown Paterson location. Along with Dr. Christine Hyde, with whom he worked closely to provide services to the youth of Passaic County through the Passaic County Family Court, the program thrived in the new downtown offices. While continuing to remain active in his provision of assessment and treatment at the newly refurbished office suite, Dr. Matone attended the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality where he received both a Doctorate in Human Sexuality and a Doctor of Philosophy in Cliinical Sexology. Dr. Matone eventually decided not to renew his contract with the county and moved his practice to Fort Lee in Bergen County, New Jersey. Here he began collaboration with Dr. Hyde, whose practice is located in nearby Morris County, in order to expand treatment opportunities to a wider and more diverse population.
Dr. Matone’s specialties include sexual dysfunction, impulsive and compulsive sexual behaviors, as well as problematic use of pornographic materials. He continues to provide treatment for specific sexual offense behaviors and is also certified in the psychotherapeutic treatment for sexual trauma and incest survivors. Dr. Matone employs a direct, insightful approach with utmost concern and compassion.
