About

Matt is a second generation Chinese American and native New Yorker. After graduating from Northeastern University, he moved out west and earned his doctorate from the University of Denver. Matt completed his APA-accredited internship at the University of Pittsburgh and his post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. Both his internship and fellowship specialized in minority mental health outreach and suicide prevention on college campuses. More recently, Matt was a staff psychologist at Columbia University Irving Medical Center where he provided therapy to the next generation of scientists, medical providers, and public health experts. Having worked in university mental health for almost 7 years, Matt quickly learned about the pressure to "have it altogether" in the next generation of adults. This desire for perfection and constant chase for self-worth breeds cycles of negative self-talk, overcompensation, and a disconnect to our values and strengths. I specialize in working with high-performing adults who struggle with relationships, family dynamics, identity concerns, self-esteem, and imposter syndrome/burnout. Matt strives to create a space where you can REALLY talk about how you feel without judgement. His goal as a therapist is to help put words to your story, heal from the past, recognize your strength, and reconnect to the person you may have lost. He knows therapy can be a challenging process, but Matt will be there with you the entire way.
