Bonnie LambertBonnie Lambert

Crestview Recovery Services, LLC
Healing Begins Here.

I have lived in Oregon my entire life; edging from Gresham, to all the corners of Portland, and finally breached the great divide to the west side of the river in 2018. Professionally, I’ve navigated the mental health system in the Portland metro area for 17 years, with experience working, first as a licensed mental health therapist and then as a psychiatric provider. I grew up in Oregon, attending Portland State University for Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Psychology (2002), then earning a Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology (2005). I achieved licensure as a therapist (LPC) in 2008 and then in 2013 began my nursing education, achieving my RN in 2014 and then board certification as an advanced practice Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) in 2016. My philosophy is that physical wellness and mental wellness go hand in hand. This dynamic informs treatment planning as a complement to finding the appropriate medications to fit a patient’s needs. In the midst of emotional distress, a treatment focused on self care and maximizing daily functioning can affirm life balance and regain holistic health, assisted by therapy and when needed, medication. My work has led me through numerous levels of mental health care; outpatient (adult and children), inpatient medical as psychiatry liaison, inpatient psychiatry, emergency department, and correctional settings. This experience has shaped my practice across a wide span of demographics and degree of vulnerability.
