Lark E Strong-Collins


Chiropractic assistant

Lark Strong-Collins is a chiropractic assistant and supports Dr. Brandy Hagan DC at Be Well. 

Lark has always had a passion for anatomy, body-autonomy, and the connection thoughtful care can bring to physical and mental wellbeing. 

Lark’s education includes a decade of medical knowledge and training – including a certification in Wilderness First Response and Chiropractic Assistant Certification from the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners.  He has had an affinity since childhood for flipping through their very well-loved copy of Grey’s Anatomy, and prioritizes trauma-informed consent based access to care.

He is passionate about assisting fellow members identifying under the LGBTQIA2S+ umbrella. When not at Be Well, Lark enjoys being a cat dad to his lazy boy Sauerkraut, getting out on their kayak (whenever the weather permits), being a drag artist, and honing in on any of many side hobbies sharing the spotlight that week. They are excited to be a part of the Be Well family, and to be a resource and advocate for members of the community. 

Care from Lark may include manual therapy, alph-stim, cupping, tens-therapy, therapeutic exercise and stretching, listening based massage and low light laser therapy for pain. 

Lark and Dr. Brandy are available, working as as a team supporting OHP and most private insurance patients with chiropractic care. Patients receive 30 minutes of chiropractic from Dr. Brandy followed by 30 minutes of adjunct therapy from Lark.

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).
