This is the the story about Lifestreams Solutions Counseling Center(Arizona) about Matt Manka And Debbie Manka. Matt was the Psychologist who married his patient Debbie and it destroyed their family and kids etc. There is a reason psychologists arent supposed to marry or date their clients. They have ultimate mental/emotional leverage over the patient. Mr. Manka should have considered the well being of her children and family before forcing his agenda agenda onto that family(who i undrstand are millionares). Its a disgrace,the whole story. Manka was even counseling the couple for marriage problems before moving in on the wife. 



1) Matt Manka was counseling Debbie Strand )in early to mid 1990s)and her husband Joe Strand in Orland Park for marriage counseling. he had previously counseled another family member thus knew debbie and husband joe were millionares.!!!hmmmmm

2) he suggested to Debbie to counsel her alone and sent hubby to another counselor in the same Orland park counseling complex. Here is where there sexual relationship began as admitted to her sons and daughter years later any denial of this is a lie to protect his license!!!!

3) Joe strand(husband) tried filing an investigation on Matt and basically ran him out of town as the department of ethical standards would eventually catch up with him. (this is why they move around so much)

4) DCFS was called on Debbie twice for violent episodes with daughter in 1998

5) attorney Scott D Sherwin filed for all psyche records and transcripts between Debbie and Matt manka to display to the court the nature of this illegal relationship(mark perks attorney)

5) matt Mankas ex girlfriends and wife came to the Strand home and pleaded with debbie not to trust Matt as he had abused a woman forcibly before in some violent episode,police were called , Debbie was warned by this woman not to marry Matt

6) Police were employed from Orland Park again as Matt had a brawl with another of Debbies male harem in front of the kids,all parties were drunk

7) Debbies own son tried to punch out Matt in objection to their marriage and other issues

8) Police we employed again to the strand house as the son was having a mental breakdown and threatening other with a knife following a drug overdose

If anyone doubts any of this use the FOIA (freedom of information act) and file with Orland Park Police to get the records on the Strand household as Debbie and Matt were on watch. it will display to all that want to see it that Matt should have his license revoked once and for all!!!!

Wow,
Mathew Manka did the exact same thing to our family. My mother started seeing him as a patient and he entered into a sexual relationship with her. It destroyed our family as well and had lasting implications that have taken years to work thru. It's a sad situation whent a man like this is still able to practice in his profession and continue to abuse others as he did our family. Was the story about him and his psychopathic tendencies because based on the definition provided, I'd say he's a prime example.

I used to go to matt for counseling, he was never anything other than professional with me. however, I have heard stories that the real person behind the therapist is a real creep to put it niceley. I know that he married his client Debbie. this other relationship he had with his client prior to debbie, did this one go on for several years over a 10 year period while he was married, then divorced. Or is there a third victim? It's really a shame that he had not been held accountable for his behavior. Terribly sad.

my mother and matt manka

AUTHOR: k. s. - (United States of America)

my mother Debbie Hofer destroyed our entire family with her so called husband matt manka .His Ex wives were coming to our home when I was 14 and having drunken brawls with my mothers other trampy boyfriends,. She dregged so many men into our house, little did we know she was cheating with Matt while still married to my dad. In other words, Matt Manka was counseling our family and my brothers then my mother slept with him while she was still married.

Can anyone see the betrayl. My mother even came onto Mark my current husband. She was an unfit mother DCFS was out to our house twice to see my mom!! my brother dan wound up in a mental hospital on my mothers watch,and my other brother is am alcoholic.
Her gullible ,fellow psychologist, arrogant friends know nothing of our lives at the boken home she provided as well as the scavengers like Matt Manka who preyed on it. My husband Mark married me at 19 by the same judge who gave him the misdimeanor. Obviously not a threat. Our case is sealed as we have two kids and happy.

Debbie and Matt Manka deserve each other,neither have any respect for family,boundaries or professional standards. I am in contact with other families Matt has destroyed and a civil matter is likely. believe what you want,just dont ever trust your wife with this guy!!

Matt manka is a sociopath. He has had numerous unethical relationships with his clients including his present wife who was his client and I assure you that it was not two years between the couch and bed. He has a pattern of pursuing female clients, having sexual relationships with them and then building a professional relationship with them. He is a pathological liar and unable to tell the truth. It is a known fact that Debbie was his client. The therapy center in or land park protected Matt and did not hold him accountable nor did they report him to the board of professional regulations. It is hard to decide who did the worst harm, Matt or the other professionals who protected this monster.

The author of this blog has been duped by Matt. It's clear from the many blogs that have surfaced through he years that Matt has hurt many people. My family and many other clients were harmed by this "psycho" therapist. He should never see clients.
