For over 16 years, Brad Matheson has helped hundreds of families navigate the difficult road of choosing the right therapeutic program for their child. “When a parent is exploring the possibility of treatment, nothing is more important than compassion, clarity, and honesty,” says Brad. “That kind of communication goes a long way toward helping parents make a sound decision and feel some peace in the midst of a very difficult situation.”
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in marketing in 2001, Brad knew he wanted to work in a service-oriented atmosphere. His love and concern for young people made the adolescent treatment industry an obvious choice. Brad began his career in the behavioral healthcare industry, providing therapeutic solutions to adolescents, young adults, and families. Brad’s experience ranges from wilderness therapy to residential treatment to aftercare and transition; this range of experience has given him a deep understanding of the treatment process in its entirety.
Desiring to contribute at an even deeper level to the treatment work he loves, Brad returned to school to complete his MBA. “I love providing organizational leadership and management support to WinGate,” Brad said, “but my favorite part of this work is helping families understand and make informed treatment decisions.” Parents frequently contact WinGate to express their gratitude for Brad’s caring manner during a very difficult decision process.
Brad and his wife, Tiffanie, live in St. George, Utah with their three children. They enjoy living in an area so full of outdoor opportunities. You will often find Brad on the golf course with his boys, playing tennis with his daughter or just hanging out with all of them.
