Matt maintains a philosophy of building a strong, safe, grounded relationship with each client. He uses a relationship based approach to connect with each client in a meaningful, individualized way. Through this work it gives the client a safe space to do the work they are looking to do. He also helps each client understand that he isn’t here to “fix” them, nor does he believe any of them are “broken.” Rather, Matt believes each client needs to learn new skills to take responsibility for creating their own happiness.
After Graduating from Westminster College in 2012 with his masters degree in professional counseling, Matt worked to become a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. He was hired by his internship continuing to work with adults struggling with substance abuse and other addictions while working to become fully licensed. Upon achieving his licensure Matt then moved to residential therapy for both male and female adolescents. Here he has provided individual, group and family therapy for clients struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship difficulties, and more. Through out his career, Matt has worked to help clients use the therapy experience to achieve their desired outcomes by meeting clients where they are at and helping them gain the necessary insight and skills to start living the life they are looking to live.
Matt was born and raised in Utah. When he is not working, you’re most likely to find him spending time with family and friends in the outdoors or at home cooking and working on home projects.
