Jamie Menzel


Licensed Certified Nutritionist

With two decades of commitment to health equity, accessible nutrition, and herbal medicine, Jamie aims to provide nutritional care that supports the body’s healing process from a trauma-informed, gender-affirming, and Health at Every Size perspective. Her primary area of focus is on the relationship between nutrition and mental health, with a special interest in the prevention and improvement of symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and ADHD.

Her educational background includes a Master of Science in Nutrition degree from the National University of Natural Medicine, a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from The Evergreen State College, and completion of more than 1000 hours of formal herbal medicine training across the state of Oregon. Jamie is currently licensed as a Certified Nutritionist, and in addition to seeing clients one-on-one, she also provides guest lectures and other ongoing support within the Nutrition Department at NUNM.

Before joining the Be Well team, Jamie founded two successful health collectives aimed at addressing health disparities in marginalized communities, one a free herbal medicine clinic in Oakland, California, and the other a rural harm reduction collective in Williams, Oregon. She currently specializes in the use of functional nutrition and evidence-based herbal therapeutics for a variety of mental and physical health concerns. She loves listening to people’s stories and helping others build confidence in themselves.  When she’s not talking about food, you can find her petting her cat, smelling flowers, going for walks, or smiling about something.  She looks forward to working with you!

Jamie accepts the Oregon Health Plan and is accepting new patients for one-on-one telehealth consults with no out-of-pocket cost to the patient.

Overview of Functional Nutrition

Tasha Searles


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).
