Youth have to believe in themselves and possibility. Humans have great capacity for change and growth, but if they don’t see this and feel it, they often remain stifled and stuck. Individuals not only need to believe in themselves but also have people in their lives who regularly remind them of their capacity to change despite the circumstances that may be happening at the time. Through a team approach at Gateway with parents, we all support each other in helping each youth discover and develop these possibilities so that they and their families can move forward.

Boston began his Gateway career in 2014 where he worked for four years as a staff mentor building strong rapport with the boys through sports, music, art, and other shared passions. In 2018, Boston left Gateway to pursue his Master's degree in Social Work at the University of Utah with the hope of returning to Gateway as a therapist. After Boston finished his Master'sdegree and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2019, he worked with adults struggling with substance use and addiction. In 2021, the stars aligned and Boston returned to Gateway to pursue his passion of working with teenagers.
When Boston is not working, you're most likely to find him hitting jumps and dropping cliffs on his snowboard or mashing home runs in slow pitch softball tournaments.
