Meet Our Founder


Kurt Malkoff, Ph.D.

Kurt Malkoff, a Ph.D.graduate from The Ohio State University, established Matrix in 1976 as a private practice. Having been raised with close ties to public service, Malkoff envisioned a mental health care organization that would help patients through compassionate, personal interaction, expert psychological care and innovative programs.

To mold Matrix into a progressive, service-rich organization, Malkoff immediately began building relationships with the business and medical communities in Columbus, those of which still hold strong today. By 1989, Matrix expanded to provide highly successful customized Employee Assistance Programs in addition to individual and family care.

Today, Matrix is known as the nations oldest, independently owned EAP provider with a reputation for superlative psychological expertise and personalized customer support.
