Today, we’re talking to Matt Fahy, LMHC. Matt is a licensed mental health counselor based in Florida. He began his quest to better understand the human condition as an Anthropologist, spending a number of years exploring and working on archeological sites. Eight years ago, he shifted his focus to mental health counseling. And now, he has married the two and uses his Anthropology knowledge and counseling skills to run therapeutic games of Dungeons and Dragons for his clients.
