Diversified Intervention Group’s Administration and Board of Directors

Angela Means, MA, MFT, Doctoral Candidate

Executive Director, Grant Writing

I live in Eugene, Oregon and have since 1988. I am a true Oregonian, living in this state for 46 years. I am the mother of four children; Brendan, 23 years, Ryan, 19 years, Paige, 14 years, and Madison, 9 years.

I graduated from the University of Oregon in 1994 with a B.S. in psychology and accounting. I entered graduate school the next month, and earned my M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy in 1996 from Northwest Christian University. I complete a one year internship at the Lane County Juvenile Department that resulted in thirteen years of employment as a probation counselor 2. I worked extensively with families and youth involved in the juvenile justice system that exhibited drug and alcohol, family, generational, educational, and community issues, mental heath diagnoses, and serious criminal behaviors including fire setting, animal abuse, person-to-person incidents, and property crimes. I have completed numerous drug and alcohol and mental health assessments.

I began the doctoral program in Marriage and Family Therapy in May of 2010 at Northcentral University. I am in the comprehensive exam and dissertation portion of my program. I worked at the Alzheimer’s Network of Oregon (non-profit organization), located in Salem, Oregon, from June of 2012 to October of 2013. I was the Program and Volunteer Director working with those impacted by, or living with, various forms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. I provided family counseling, obtained state grants and private funding, and completed memory screening.

I am looking forward to my work as Executive Director, and focusing on preparing federal, state, and private grants to help the organization grow and continue to provide the best services possible to those individuals impacted by drug and alcohol use and abuse. I am passionate about providing best practice therapeutic services to those reaching out for assistance.

I have been in the field since 1997 and began with the establishment of SERADAN in 1998. While, at Cleveland State University, I was involved in the mapping of the genome of the Mitochondria of the Giardia, a binucleate parasitic organism. I loved doing molecular genetic research but had to grow up and turned my talents into the field of counseling. My time as the Chair for the Consumer Advisory Council to the Alcohol and Drug Services Board of Cuyahoga County was spent in making the public more aware of the true nature of addiction and the successful treatments available to the alcoholic and addict not to mention the codependents that were a result of the addiction of someone in their lives. As a council, we lobbied for better quality treatment and education for all involved.
