Foundation House, a transitional living and intensive outpatient program (IOP) for men ages 17-35, has hired Matthew Hendry, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Tonya Thompson, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) to lead its clinical team.
Hendry, who will oversee all aspects of the Foundation House program and clinical approach, has been working with clients struggling with addictions since 1999. He was most recently the Clinical Director for Discovery Academy in Utah where he applied a focus on Experiential Therapies. He was drawn to the Foundation House because of the organization's commitment to helping young men take accountability for their recovery, its belief in a positive approach to helping young men find their own voice, and what that means in staying clean and sober.
Thompson is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist, a National Board Certified Counselor, a Certified Experiential Therapist and has spent the past 25 years in a combination of private practice and addiction treatment programs. She will lead the Clinical Team at Foundation House to provide the highest level of clinical care to its residents.
In addition to her work at Foundation House, Tonya is a visiting therapist at Onsite workshops in Cumberland Furnace, TN. At Onsite, she hones her skills of psychodrama and experiential therapy with experts Dr. Tian Dayton and Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse. In addition, through her previous work at world renowned treatment center The Meadows, Inc. in Wickenburg, AZ, Tonya had the privilege of working and training with top professionals in the field of trauma, addiction and experiential therapy including Pia Mellody, Dr. Claudia Black, John Bradshaw, Peter Levine, and Dr. Bessel van der Kolk.
“I am thrilled to have these two leaders in the field join the growing Foundation House team,” says Patrick Babcock, CEO/Owner of Foundation House. “Their experience helping others in early recovery will excel the more than fifteen years that Foundation House has spent helping young men in recovery realize a life second to none.”
