Matt is a licensed marriage and family therapist and a licensed family law attorney. As an attorney, his experience working with families going through a divorce or child custody dispute has given him a passion for healthy marriage relationships and parent/child relationships.  He has been trained in EMDR therapy which he uses to help clients work through difficult childhood relationships and experiences as well as specific traumatic incidents experienced as a child or an adult. In addition to working with clients at CIFT, Matt partners with church leaders and staff in supporting them in their ministry, teaches law and ethics in marriage and family therapy graduate programs, and is a consultant on legal and clinical issues related to divorce, mental health, child custody, and co-parenting.
