Telia Anderson,




I am a Certified recovery mentor II, Birth and Postpartum Doula that specializes in working with birthing people that struggle with mental health and addiction. Working with our women has been an amazing experience for me especially considering this is the same community I once was a part of. I received my certification for recovery mentor and recovery counselor through MHACBO of Portland, Oregon. Under this certification I have also served as a Subject Matter Expert at IC & RC and Camden Coalition Blueprint for complex care. This experience is what fueled my passion to become a Doula. I completed Mother Tree Doula and ICTC Doula training in 2015 and since then have attended 300+ births. Being a Doula has taught me how to hone my personal life experiences into skills to better suit the community I serve, like addiction, recovery, mental health therapy and trauma informed care having a holistic approach. I also have some public speaking experience by presenting at NAPSW- National Association of Perinatal Social Work, OHSU Grand Rounds, National Perinatal Association, HealthShare conference, Swanman Conference-Legacy Health and a few more addressing the Peer Recovery Counselor/Doula role combined to support Pregnant women suffering from substance use disorder, sexual and interpersonal trauma. I am also a MAAPPS trainer for MHACBO, Peer wellness specialist trainer for MHAAO and Trauma informed care trainer for community doula’s and other practitioners/providers. I am also the proud owner and Founder of a Full spectrum doula support/consultant practice Yasiin’s Luv LLC.
