About Matt

If Oprah and Ellen had a baby, raised by Dolly Parton—it would be Matt Marr.  Matt aka Mattie can–and WILL–talk to anyone.  He’s the guy in the grocery store that compliments your eye makeup and then two minutes later you’re asking him for dating advice.  Originally from southern Oklahoma, Matt credits his love of talking and hearing good stories from Sunday lunches at his large Southern family swappin’ tall tales.  He is a therapist and holds a Masters of Clinical Psychology, specializing in Narrative Therapy.  At the same time, he is a successful commercial actor and has performed stand-up all over the West Coast. He hosts of two podcasts:  THE DEAR MATTIE SHOW, an advice podcast where listeners send questions to Matt to provide humor, heart, and hopefully, a helpful perspective to empower his listeners to be the authors of their own life story and work towards their dreams. TV Tea Time is a podcast where Matt and his “sister” Jake Anthony, queen out over terrible TV and then tell you how to feel about it.
