Meet our Care Teams
As a Medical Home HPC offers services through care teams. Each Provider is part of either our Penguin or Dolphin team. Our Kangaroo team will see newborns for the first 30 days of life before transitioning to one of our care teams.
Behavioral Health in Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic
I am a licensed clinical social worker through the Oregon State Board of Licensed Clinical Social Workers since 2013. I have expertise in addressing a wide range of concerns that children, adolescents, and families often face including: grief and loss, anxiety, suicide, stress, depression, emotion regulation, peer relationships, life transitions, sexual abuse, commercial sexual exploitation, and trauma.
What is Behavioral Health?
Good health care involves paying attention not just to physical health, but also stress, relationships, emotional health, habits, and behaviors, and how those things interact with each other and medical conditions. A behavioral health provider can help you or your child get the information, skills, and emotional support needed to help your child feel better, be healthier, regain control of life, and live more fully despite stress, pain, or illness. Behavioral health providers at Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic are licensed professional counselors who specialize in helping people develop skills and make changes to improve their overall health and manage their health conditions. The behavioral health provider is part of your medical team and will consult with your child’s provider and the rest of the team to ensure thorough and coordinated care.
