Where do I see the BHC?
Your behavioral healthcare will be in this clinic - you will not have to go anywhere else to see the behavioral health provider. We also offer telehealth and phone appointments.

I was born and raised along the McKenzie River where my grandparents had settled and built their home in the 1940s. I attended McKenzie Schools, later attending college at the U of O (Go Ducks!) then moving to Central Oregon where I raised my sons.
While living in Central Oregon I worked for Bend/LaPine Schools as a Youth Transition Specialist providing support for students with disabilities as they navigated through various systems becoming independent young adults. Upon graduation, with my Master’s of Science, I was employed by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs where I was able to provide child and family therapy for tribal members.
After returning “home” in 2017 I went to work as a behavioral health case manager with the Eugene Mission serving people experiencing homelessness. I am very excited to be working with Orchid Health and providing integrated behavioral health care for the community that gave me my roots.
For fun I enjoy being outside as much as possible, gardening, being near or in the water, spending time with family and friends, dancing, listening to music, good food, playing games and laughing (usually at myself).
