Stress: The Thing We Can’t Live With…or Without!

I know what you may be thinking…living without stress sounds GREAT!

Check out what Matthew had to say…

What led you to become a therapist?

I like understanding things. I get geeky about a topic and dive in to make sense of whatever that thing is. When I decided to work toward being a therapist, a big part of that was a desire to understand people. The more people I work with, the deeper understanding I get about the human experience.
