Spearhead feels grateful to have Matthew and his valuable experience as a sober companion. His genuine nature and presence can be felt immediately, adding significant value to any treatment team. Matthew is excellent at establishing rapport with participants and providing a nurturing environment for stabilization and recovery. He has worked long term and challenging treatment cases, teamed up with prestigious health care organizations, helped mediate complex legal scenarios, and worked on a special needs trust to ensure long term outcomes.
Matthew found his calling and looks forward to a long career in therapeutic services. Having walked the line for many years with his own addiction and raised in an alcoholic environment, Matthew has a powerful way of relating his own personal experiences with others. In his free time, Matthew enjoys staying active at the gym, biking the beach path, connecting with a community of creatives at the local coffee shop, playing beach volleyball, record collecting, and reading. Matthew finds his joy and energy through quality time spent with friends and family.
