BACKGROUND
Raised in Fairview, Oregon under challenging circumstances, I spent my formative years living in an industrial farming community of migrant laborers near the mouth of Columbia River Gorge. I attended local primary and secondary schools near Fairview, as well as alternative education programs for juvenile delinquency. A first-generation post-secondary student, I received several need-based grants to sustain my initial education, which included a formal interdisciplinary program, advanced individual studies, an externship, and study abroad modules. Thereafter I pursued third-level work in theoretical psychology, competed comprehensive clinical-training as a psychotherapist in a community outpatient clinic and subsequently graduated with honors.
