Jared has worked in a variety of healthcare fields throughout his schooling. His experience includes working in a residential treatment center, with adults with disabilities, with kids with autism, psychiatric hospital, and in schools as a social worker.
“I have always had the desire to help lift others up. It was not until my senior year of high school that I figured out that I would like to work as a therapist. It was while I was taking an intro to psychology class that I obtained an even greater fascination with human behavior and the brain. Adolescents are the rising generation and with early intervention, life can get easier for them as adults. It is truly an honor to be even just a small part of their journey in life towards healthy living.”
When not at work, Jared enjoys spending time with his family going on walks or watching TV shows and movies. He also enjoys fly fishing, reading, and puzzles. “Life is just like a puzzle; you have all the pieces, and you just need to put them in the right places.”
