Matts' work at Ellie focuses often on the core values of humor and authenticity. In his therapy work, his mission is to join with you on your journey toward self-improvement, while also infusing humor and down to earth perspectives that allow people to feel most connected to their authentic selves. He has provided therapy services for over 15 years to adolescents, families, couples, and adults from diverse cultures and backgrounds with a wide array of mental health concerns. In his leadership roles, Matt can often be found telling a story or joke that brings out his genuine desire to connect with others and foster lasting and supportive relationships. His meme game is on point, and he can be counted on to bring a smile to someone's face at any given moment. When he's not working, he enjoys fishing, golfing, spending time with his wife, three boys, and their dog Arlo.
