Clinical Team

AJ Metthe, LICSW (he/they)

Social Worker

AJ was drawn to Gould Farm in August 2023, captivated by the Farm’s unconventional approach to mental health care. With a background rooted in public and community service, AJ's academic journey began at Providence College, where he explored societal interconnectedness and developed his philosophy of service.

Continuing his education at Smith College School for Social Work, AJ deepened his understanding of psychodynamic theory and its practical application in person-centered care. Guided by his experiences within marginalized communities, including LGBTQ groups and those affected by gun violence, AJ firmly believes in the importance of lived experiences and collaborative decision-making.

As a clinician at Gould Farm, AJ prioritizes fostering therapeutic relationships based on mutual respect and understanding. His commitment to challenging norms and embracing a dynamic environment is evident in his approach to supporting both guests and staff.AJ finds inspiration in Gould Farm's mission to reclaim community values and combat societal isolation. Living on the Farm, he experiences the profound significance of sharing meals and growing food together, evident in our daily meals crafted from homegrown produce, prepared collaboratively, and then shared at our community dining room three times a day, seven days a week.

In addition to his work at Gould Farm, AJ shares his life with his loyal companion, Raven the Rescue, a black lab mix.
