“Michael had no long term horizon, didn’t care about anything, was disengaged and had no foundation to start the recovery journey… Today he is a productive senior in HS involved in extra-curricular activities and thinking about college. (Headway) gave us traction, a positive track record of real accomplishments and new beginning.”

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.
