It is my great pleasure to have served the Oregon community in a variety of ways over the years. As an educator, I have served with trustees at my college. As a lover of the natural environment, I am proud to have been on the boards of both the Mt. Hood National Forest Homeowners Association and the Oregon Forest Homeowners Association. As a businesswoman, I am delighted to serve on the Board of Advisors for the John and Susan Bates Center for Entrepreneurship and Leadership. As a clinician, I am proud to be a member of the Board of Directors at Cascadia Whole Health Care, a social service agency committed to meeting the mental health and medical needs of our most vulnerable brothers and sisters, and on the Board of Directors at the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, an organization focused on promoting education and training in contemporary depth therapy traditions.
As part of both the higher education and mental health communities in Portland, I am happy to be able to donate 10% of my practice income annually to higher education and to organizations that address Portland's mental health needs.
