Matt approaches life with curiosity and a driven sense of purpose. He understands life can be complicated and there are often many twists and turns that come about unexpectedly. Like a GPS system, he loves assisting people in navigating those twists and turns based on their individual values and sociocultural context. Prior to his experience as a therapist, Matt was a stand up comedian and strives to bring humor and lightheartedness to the therapeutic relationship whenever appropriate. Matt believes a positive mindset and laughter can be some of the best medicine!
