Matt Child, LCSW
Discovery Ranch combines the two things that Matt feels passionately about – horses and working with youth. Whether he is bucking hay or riding a horse, Matt always seems to have his students with him. He’s the type of person you just want to hang out with. Having grown up on a family ranch, Matt is able to blend his therapeutic knowledge and skill with the daily tasks of ranch work in such a way that the students develop therapeutic insight without realizing it is happening.
With a Masters degree in Social Work and over 15 years experience working with teens and their families, Matt brings a real-life perspective to some very clinically complicated family situations.
The only things he enjoys more than horses and working with youth are his wife and his four wonderful children.
