With the support of his friends and family (especially his father, Howard, whom Matt says provided unconditional love and support through his darkest days and never let him give up the hope and potential for finding that “silver lining” ), Matt turned tragedy into triumph and dedicated his professional career to those suffering from mental illness and addiction, becoming an accomplished licensed therapist, healthcare consultant, executive, national professional speaker, and leader in the industry.
