About Matt


I wanted to be a therapist since age 12. I delayed until my 30’s because that lemonade stand money was just too good. I also wanted to experience “real” adult life before going to graduate school. This resulted in a successful IT career, a marriage, and lots of growing up.

Many clients have shared that they feel I’m unusually easy to talk to, that I’m especially non-judgmental, and they like coming to my office. 

Volunteer experience includes two years on a hotline for domestic violence and sexual assault, two years in a “big brother” mentoring program, and numerous community outreach programs. Volunteerism allowed me to enjoy a great diversity of people. Along the way I also accumulated two years of coursework in psychology, research, and statistics.

​My bachelor’s degree in Business Administration served me well, and that career experience helps me relate with people in the typical working world. After ten years of the corporate grind I took the plunge, earning a Masters of Social Work at UNC Chapel Hill in 2008 with a certificate in Addiction Studies.

My personal interests include identity, consciousness, and personal spirituality. This path developed from a lifelong struggle to integrate intuitive experience.
