Hi. I'm Matthew (he/him).

Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
Therapist. Registered Voter.
Anti-Racist. Feminist.
Husband. New Dad.

I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE.

I help busy adults discover their core emotions and authentic self-energy to heal, grow, and build a life worth living.

MY MISSION IS TO EMPOWER MENNEW DADS, AND THEIR PARTNERS.

Many men don't typically seek mental health treatment. If they do, then they don't typically receive gender-sensitive care. Imagine working with a mindful and inclusive male therapist as your Right Hand Therapy Man.

 

Invest in your life, and together we can empower your verve to help you experience more calm, more clarity, more courage, more curiosity, more creativity, more compassion, more confidence, and more connection with your Self, your emotions, and the people in your life.

NASW VALUES = OUR VALUES
  • Service

  • Social Justice

  • Competence

Our values are intentionally adopted from the values of the National Association of Social Workers, which is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 120,000 members.

So, NASW Values = Our Values.

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT MATTHEW?

I earned a Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2011 from Eastern Michigan University and a Master of Social Work degree in 2013 from New York University Silver School of Social Work. I'm a member of the National Association of Social Workers and the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work.

When I'm not wearing my "therapy hat" during "the therapy hour", I try to enjoy being an imperfect new dad and house husband. My wife and I try to spend time traveling when we can to explore new neighborhoods, art, the outdoors, culture, music, food & drink, and fun family activities. I'm a HUGE fan of Manchester United Football Club.
