Matt played tennis at the collegiate level and enjoys running. Living with chronic persistent headaches gives him an appreciation for TCC’s mission of helping clients thrive even while experiencing pain. He was enrolled in the Health and Wellness course when he heard about Take Courage Coaching. “Of all the things I tried over the course of seven years, receiving pain coaching had, by far, the biggest impact on improving my pain experience,” says Matt, what he calls a transformative experience that inspired him to change careers and focus on chronic pain-management coaching. He dreams of traveling abroad with his wife, particularly to Spanish-speaking countries where he can converse in the local language. Until then, they and their children live in New Hampshire with a yellow lab. His interests include cooking, meditating and reading inspiring books.
