“Agency success, at any size, must be an intentional process, beginning with the individual and rooted in the soil of a positive culture.”

- Andrew Matusiak, Owner and CEO

Andrew Matusiak is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over ten years of contributing to the human services industry. In this time, he has worked in management and direct care roles in group homes, skilled nursing facilities, as a school social worker, private consultation, and as a contracted therapist. In his career, he has participated in the opening of three successful behavioral programs ranging from a day program for developmentally disabled adults, a court diversion program for adolescents, and more recently he has broken ground by creating a dynamic geriatric-psych program. 



Andrew offers a unique perspective to training and developing staff and corporate leaders across the human services field. This perspective was developed as an alumnus from Fordham University with a graduate degree in clinical social work, and an undergraduate degree in psychology, along with years of experience in administrative roles and direct operations.  More recently, Andrew moved into consultation work as he supported corporations with the pursuit of innovative programming endeavors.


In his professional career, Andrew has had the privilege of working alongside many industry leaders. Our trainers and consultant team are all equally invested in the mission at Challenging Minds to improve corporate cultures, train staff and community members on best practices of mental health and behavioral engagement, program development, and individual competencies at every level.
