Currently, I am a mental health therapist, working as a member of the Outreach, Assistive Services, and Integrated Supports team, within the Yamhill County Health and Human Services department.
My focus is on individuals who have difficulty accessing traditional outpatient services due to medical issues or chronic health conditions and/or individuals who require a high level of care coordination due to special circumstances or needs. The aim is to help older adults and adults with disabilities overcome some of the challenges they often fact in receiving mental health treatment. Primarily the services - which include therapy, consultation, and behavioral health case management - are provided on an outreach basis - so individuals can receive the needed services in their home or other community setting. When clinically indicated, services are also provided in the outpatient clinic.
When I am not working, I treasure a good book. I enjoy reading and critically thinking about what I am reading then writing about it. I am a self-directed learner that is genuinely interested in learning new things and acquiring more knowledge; I have a "hungry brain".
