A Day in the Life: Counseling Services

I start the day by reviewing notes from yesterday’s clinician sessions. This allows me to catch up on what’s happening with different youth, note any progress or setbacks, and decide how to best guide my team of clinicians. A big part of my job involves leading supervision for the Behavioral Health team.

A Day in the Life: Rapid Re-housing

When I first sit down to my desk, I check my email, especially for any reports or messages from Case Managers that have come in overnight. I oversee several Case Managers who work day-to-day with youth, helping to fnd housing, assisting with rent payment, and serving as the touch point to Bridge and the rest of our services. This is how I keep up-to-date with what’s going on.
