Patty McDuffey

(she/her)

Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist

After graduating from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2010, Patty started her first practice in Bend, OR. Like many others, she entered the acupuncture field of medicine after experiencing exceptional relief through natural dietary therapy, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs for health concerns that were not responding well to other forms of treatment. 

She’s taken the road less traveled, both in life as well as within this profession. It often hasn’t been easy, but it has always ended up transforming her and her practice in ways that she could not have imagine. Upon graduating, she traveled to Chine to complete an acupuncture and herbal internship at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. In addition to the academics of this internship, international travel experiences have always been at the heart of her pursuit of health – both personal and collective. In 2013 and 2014, Patty had the opportunity to volunteer with the Acupuncture Relief Project in rural Bhimphedi, Nepal. Most recently, during the summer of 2022, she spent time observing and experiencing how western and central European countries structure their societies in ways that engender personal and societal health and well-being. 

Patty has practiced acupuncture in both Bend and Portland, and worked within the health insurance industry. She has woven together her experiences, studies, observations, and lessons learned. It is from this collection of life, travel, and educational experiences that she draws when working with patients. She strives to understand what is at the root of dis-ease and will do her best to help each patient realize their own unique healing potential in an effort to find greater balance, peace, and well-being. She is happy to be a part of Be Well Holistic Health and to serve within what she hopes will grow into a foundation for a national healthcare system in the United States. 

Patty is available to see CareOregon and PacificSource patients only at a secondary Be Well location, located at 4445 NE Fremont St. Portland, OR 97213.

Treatments Available: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Functional Nutrition, Lifestyle Coaching
Specialties: Pain Management, Mental/Emotional Disorders (PTSD and trauma), Internal Medicine

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).
