He received his MSW from Simmons University in May of 2019 and completed his licensure to become an LCSW in August 2019. Prior to Home Base, in his first-year graduate internship, Matt worked with homeless, unaccompanied, and housing unstable high school students, where he helped them secure housing, graduate high school, and develop a clear post-graduate plan. Matt’s interests in social work revolve around clinical mental health counseling and policy advocacy, especially in populations impacted by substance use disorders with particular focus on the impact of language and stigma. Matt is excited to continue his work at Home Base with Veterans, Service Members, and their families.
