Matt Hanson, PhD, LP


Matt Hanson has provided mental health care at the U since 1998 and has enjoyed working with students from various cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. Matt emphasizes building a solid foundation of trust and creating safety to allow for open communication and honest self-discovery. Like most clinicians, Matt uses multiple lenses and frames of reference to help identify specific and concrete issues and concerns that can be addressed in a shorter-term/goal-directed model. He seeks to build on his client's natural strengths and resilience to create a sense of hope that things can get better and provide support for trying different behaviors that can make lasting and meaningful improvements.
