Hello! My name is Lauren Bouma. As the receptionist here at Portland Mental Health and Wellness, it is my goal to make your experience working with our clinic as easy as possible! I’ll connect you to the information and resources you need to take full advantage of your time with our clinic. With a degree in Psychology, Religious Studies, and Sociology from Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA (Go Zags!), I hope to utilize my knowledge to contribute to our culture of empathy and understanding. I value authenticity, empathy, patience, and human connection in all aspects of life. In my free time, I enjoy all things outdoors, including backpacking, skiing, rock climbing, and (recently) kayaking! My dream is to one day own a cat and name it Gus. I look forward to speaking with you!
