Matthew Hendry, LCPC

Clinical Director, Therapist

    Growing up in Colorado at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, I gained an appreciation and a love for the wilderness. Somewhere along the way, probably during a 4th grade assignment on different states, I became fascinated with Maine and ever since have dreamt of living here. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Utah and my graduate degree from the University of Phoenix. While in Utah, I worked at a therapeutic boarding school spending 10 of those years as the clinical director. In addition to school and work, I also fell in love with a girl from Maine. Together we grew a family which includes four daughters and two sons and we eventually found our way to Maine. I have not been disappointed in Midcoast Maine life and am excited for the new experiences I am able to share with my family. My goal is to help each family member discover what they can contribute to the healing process while their child is discovering who they are and what their true potential is. I am excited to help facilitate this process at Ironwood as a therapist. One of my favorite quotes is from Bono when he said, “Idealism detached from action is just a dream. But idealism allied with pragmatism, with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit, is very exciting.”
