Matthew Dean Barkdull is a licensed marriage and family therapist, certified medical family therapist, and is a level one certified WholeFIT provider. He also holds an MBA with emphasis in strategic management. Matthew has had nearly 20 years of experience in the social service, mental health, and training/motivational speaking industries. His previous professional experience involved mental health administration and health officer responsibilities, laboring in large non-profit organizations, program managing worldwide wellness initiatives, and authoring books, magazine articles, book chapters, and research on various wellness, mental health, and inspirational subjects. Within the last decade, Mr. Barkdull's research interests have gravitated to how an integrated, systemic approach to treatment can hasten healing and disrupt the current medical/mental health treatments and operational paradigms of today. This research has culminated into Mr. Barkdull founding of the Wholeness Integrated Solutions model of care that beautifully aligns with the WholeFIT framework. Of note, he is a cancer survivor, the recipient of two kidney transplants, survived a severe form of West Nile infection, and was born with severe hemophilia--a rare blood clotting disorder. Therefore, his treatment approach to the human condition of suffering and heartache is rich with empathy, genuineness, strengths focused, collaboration, hope and, of course, systemic integration. His clinical interests include working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, bereavement, pornography or other sexually-based addictions, marital difficulties, patients with chronic, acute, and/or terminal illnesses and their families, adjustment challenges, school difficulties, employment problems, former or current LDS missionaries struggling with mental health challenges, and suicidal ideation. In terms of coaching, he specializes in executive coaching and coaching with patients and their families suffering from terminal, acute, and chronic illnesses. Matthew and his wife were married in 1995 and are the parents of three beautiful daughters. They live on the beautiful Oquirrh Mountain bench near Salt Lake City, Utah.
