Amy Homer-Brown, licensed acupuncturist

Amy Homer-Brown

(she/her)

Licensed Acupuncturist

Amy Homer-Brown (she/her) is a licensed acupuncturist in Portland, Oregon, born and raised on the beautiful island of Barbados. She has always been drawn to the art of medicine and healing and set out to become a doctor since childhood. However, she believed that there was more to medicine than medications and surgery and during her years as a medical student, sought more wholistic practices.

Amy began her medical career in 2008 as a doctor, obtaining an allopathic medical degree in 2014 in her home country, Barbados. After 12 months of working as a medical intern in a public hospital in Trinidad, Amy decided to pursue a degree in natural medicine instead of continuing on to a medical residency program. Her dream was to pursue and practice a form of medicine that complemented the body’s innate abilities of self-healing, viewed each person as an individual and shared her beliefs in the mind-body connection for healing. It was at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, OR, where she found her home in Classical Chinese Medicine.

Amy’s acupuncture style follows closely with Traditional Japanese techniques which are gentle and incredibly effective. Such techniques include non-insertive needling, moxibustion and gentle bodywork such as sotai, myofascial release, and cranialsacral therapy. Amy enjoys working with a diverse patient population and works with patients with conditions such as (but not limited to) stress, anxiety and depression, acute and chronic pain and physical rehabilitation (such as neurological conditions, injury, stroke).

Amy is not a licensed MD in the United States but enjoys using her medical knowledge in understanding her patients from a biomedical perspective, speaking and translating the Western language of medicine, and combining it with her knowledge of East Asian medicine. She is a national board-certified acupuncturist with the NCCAOM and Oregon Medical Board.

Tasha Searles

(she/they)

advanced practice nurse

Tasha Searles, APRN, AGCNS-BC is a Queer, Autistic, ADHDer with Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome + some other commonly co-occurring conditions. Originally from Indiana, they now reside in Portland, Oregon with their two rambunctious cats. Tasha enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, learning, and finding new ways to be creative.

 

Professionally, Tasha is trained as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (a type of advanced practice nurse, similar to a Nurse Practitioner), and has been a nurse for over a decade —mostly working with individuals impacted by chronic or complex health conditions. They started in diabetes care and became a Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist, so much of their work has been related to diabetes and nutrition. They also spent many years as a Nurse Navigator helping clients navigate the healthcare system. Their personal health journey, and realization of the huge gaps in available care, led them to shift their professional practice to serve others on similar journeys as their own.

 

Tasha has been told she’s inquisitive and “a very good detective”. Being curious, digging deep, and thinking outside of the box (all while keeping the whole picture in mind) are really her favorite things in this life. Tasha’s style in working with patients is as a consultant & coach. She believes you are the expert in your own self and aims to empower you, provide hope, and help you to use your own innate wisdom to live your best life!

 

Tasha’s goal is to create a safer space for all to receive appropriate healthcare that is affirming & accommodating of individual needs; a space that encourages exploration and self-determination of what wellness & thriving mean in your individual life. They practice from a trauma informed perspective that is neurodiversity, LGBTQ+, disability, & HAES affirming. Tasha is able to order diagnostic tests and prescribe medications, but also works with clients on nervous system safety, nutrition, hydration, gut health, musculoskeletal health & movement, sleep, mental & emotional health, stress management, creating a life they love, finding joy, & more.

 

Tasha is available for telehealth consultations for Oregon Health Plan members and is accepting new patients ages 16 & up. Because all visits are conducted virtually, Tasha does not serve as a Primary Care Provider (PCP).
