Improved health is derived through active support of families and communities, knowing one’s purpose, healthy lifestyle choices which include nutritional focus, natural movement, connection and improved social determinants of health.

Quinn Berry, Clinician

Quinn Berry is a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the State of Oregon. He received his M.A., in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling, from the University of Iowa. He also holds a B.A., in Criminal Justice, from St. Leo University, and a Master’s Degree in Public Health, from American Public University.

Professionally, Quinn plays several roles for the people he serves: First and foremost, He's a booster. He believe his clients have the ability to take stock in their lives, make decisions, and take action, in ways that will make their lives better. Perhaps the most important thing he does is cheer them on as they work to live more satisfying lives. Additionally, Quinn acts as a sounding board for issues of importance to the people he works for. He acts as a physical therapist for the brain - by encouraging people to use and strengthen areas of their brains that have not been adequately developed. He performs complex care coordination and case management – assisting with navigating, coordinating, and influencing the many medical, social, and criminal justice systems the people I serve interface with.

People have on more than one occasion asked Quinn how do you do the work you do – implying that to work with people with mental illnesses must be a grueling task. Quite to the contrary, He always answers, "my work is sometimes very difficult, but generally joyful and celebratory. Every day, I see people I work with living better lives, making better choices, and expressing greater satisfaction with their lives. It’s hard for me to envision a more uplifting experience. Sometimes therapy is hard. We look at hard problems. We talk about emotionally charged events. Mostly, therapy is satisfying, healthful, and invigorating. My expectation for the services I provide are that most of the time, when a client leaves my office they feel healthier, happier, and better able to address the pressing issues in their lives."
