Matt Peck, MS-MFT, LPC
As a marriage and family specialist, Matt Peck works with families, couples, and individuals with a variety of presenting needs. His work focuses on extinguishing present problems while also searching for long-term solutions at their root cause. Although Matt works with many different needs, he specializes in problems with anxiety and depression, identity development, men’s issues, life/work transitions, and forming/maintaining positive healthy relationships. He utilizes acceptance, forgiveness, and mindfulness-based strategies to bring restoration and peace to those he supports. Matt works with the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) as he guides them towards integration and values-oriented living. He enjoys helping individuals through their present problems and into conversations of purpose and living as the best version of themselves. Matt believes the sure-fire way to peace is through an affirmation of identity and he incorporates this into all the work he does.
Matt currently teaches and supervises other counselors at Boise State University while he earns his Ph.D. in Counselor Education. He is also involved in grant funded work from the State of Idaho where he leads trainings at schools to teach students to act as defenders against bullying. Matt’s alma mater is the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and he earned his master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary.
He is available for presentations on various topics of positive psychology, and he also does program evaluations at worksites to maximize both employee satisfaction and company performance.
