I am a 25 year old adolescent counselor for Northwest Behavioral Healthcare Services; an inpatient facility for troubled youth. I have my bachelors in Psychology specializing in human sexuality and relationships. My masters is currently in progress through Portland State University. I have worked with adolescents and teens for 3 years, creating group therapy outlines, one on one processing and sexual education. I work with clients that struggle with Eating Disorders, Depression, PTSD, Bi-Polar Disorder, Addiction etc.
I have been living independently since I was 17. This made being frugal a necessity; learning how to provide for myself and pay my way through school is what has made me successful with budgeting and goals. I grew up in a large family which meant we had to learn to make meals, clothing and necessities stretch. I am skilled at managing finances, coming up with DIY home alternatives to products and making every dollar stretch.
Please contact me if interested in my work.
