Matt Boone, LCSW, is the associate director of the Student Wellness Program and an instructor in the Department of Psychiatry. His professional interests include evidence-based treatments for anxiety, depression, trauma, and eating disorders; training professionals in cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT); and supporting students of color, LGBTQ+ students, students with disabilities, first-generation students, and others who might face challenges in medical training. He specializes in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness- and acceptance-based behavior therapy for a broad spectrum of problems, and has published various books, articles, book chapters, and blogs on ACT-related topics. In his life outside of work, he enjoys writing and recording music, eating amazing food, and hanging out with friends. He and his wife spend way too much time talking about their cat, Elliot, and he loves working with people who think therapy is for wimps.
Todd is a proud native of North Little Rock, a two-time graduate of the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, and a former Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Maintenance Officer in the United States Air Force. His interest in psychiatry blossomed after his third year rotations at the VA and the Arkansas State Hospital and was fully cemented after meeting all of the fantastic people in the psychiatry department. He spends most of his spare time obsessing about soccer, running, and hanging with his family and his pals.
