“I've worked with Headway for over ten years and the quality of the services they provide to youth and their family has been excellent. The staff genuinely care about their clients and want them to be successful…they hold their young clients accountable for their behavior.

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.
