Matthew was born and raised, right here in the Salt Lake Valley, and comes from a very large and supportive family. He has lots of brothers and one sister, and over a dozen nieces and nephews whom he dotes upon and spoils relentlessly.

Matthew fully believes in and is committed to the mission of Stillwater Academy, and has seen it personally affect his own life and the lives of dozens of teens and their families. Matthew works with his clients closely in group settings, one-on-one individual counseling, and family therapy.

Matthew has a down-to-earth, relationship focused, and all-round caring approach to his practice. Matthew cites Brene Brown and Dr. Bruce D. Perry as key inspiration, and integrates much of their research into his own trauma-informed and strengths-based outlook.
