Celia Heffernan

(she/her)

Professional Counselor Associate

Celia Heffernan (she/her) is a Professional Counselor Associate. She is honored to support individuals in discovering a sense of safety and ease within their bodies and their interpersonal relationships as they navigate life with increased agency, authenticity, and fulfillment. Celia works with people experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD and complex trauma, and has a particular interest in supporting individuals who are new to parenthood or beginning romantic relationships. 

Celia’s approach is trauma-informed, attachment-oriented, and with a focus on the strengths of the individual as the foundation of healing. Sometimes the techniques we develop that have once kept us safe and afloat in the face of challenges may later get in our way. Celia collaborates with clients to identify and shift unhelpful or harmful patters and cultivate new ways of responding with greater compassion for themselves and others. She integrates somatic psychotherapy techniques, Ego States, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in her work, to assist in harnessing the client’s innate ability to heal from past trauma and restore balance. 

In her free time, Celia likes getting outside to run, hike, or backpack. She also loves helping out in community gardens, whether local or abroad, with a passion to support greater access to quality food.

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).
