My name is Matt Reid, and I am The In Place. I am a:
- Certified ADHD Coach (AACC)
- Certified Life Coach (ACC)
- Professional Organizer
- Executive Function Specialist
- Speaker & Teacher
I am also a classically-trained chef, a husband, a father, a son, and a friend. After more than a decade as a professional chef, I left the restaurant industry to pursue my true calling as a coach. I draw on my personal experience, my formal coaching education, and my experience as a professional coach to help clients of all ages and all backgrounds create the lives they have always wanted and deserved.
I take particular pride in helping ADHD teens, adults and families. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 years old. In the twenty-five-plus years since then I have taken a remarkable journey. That is why I named my business The In Place. I've finally found my place in the world, and I am tremendously grateful to be able to help other people find their place in the world every day.
I also run the only CHADD Parents ADHD support group in the state. We meet at Milton Hospital once a month. All the information is on our Meetup site. If you are geographically near enough, please join the group to get updates and join us at the meetings. The meetings and the Meetup group are 100% free.
As of January 2015 I have been a member of the Massachusetts General Hospital Patients and Families Advisory Council. I am very excited to work with the other members of the council and the faculty, staff, and administration of MGH to shape policy and help determine the direction of one of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world. As a member of the MGH PFAC, I have begun a working group which will focus solely on behavioral health issues. Our goal is to make high quality affordable behavioral health care available and accessible in our community.
As of October 2015 I will be sitting on a new ADHD-centric PCORI Stakeholders advisory board with many. Follow my blog for updates on this.
