Eric has been working in youth for the past 10, the majority of which were spent working for an adolescent therapeutic boarding school and including times with a youth homeless shelter and wilderness therapy program. Eric brings a unique perspective of having spent time in treatment himself during his adolescent years, bringing an extra understanding to the therapeutic process of being a participant in treatment. Eric is a certified trainer in crisis intervention through the Crisis Prevention Institute. Eric is continuing his education at Oregon State University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Science to further his career in providing opportunities for others in the way that he believes opportunities were provided for him. During his downtime Eric can be found playing basketball, watching the Seattle Seahawks, or enjoying one of his more quiet hobbies such as playing board games and card games.
