“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

Matthew joined Headway in August, 2019, and has worked in human services since 2015. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. As an intern within our school-based therapy program, he works with adolescent clients in a school setting; he is excited to work with the diverse population that we serve, and see a number of different perspectives when working with clients with a broad range of different experiences. "I want to provide clients with the opportunity to share their experiences with a safe adult, and to be able to learn that their past doesn't define their future," he says.

When he is not working, Matthew enjoys hiking with his dog, listening to music, playing video games, and trying new coffee shops.
