Leigh Anne Bressler, DO

PSYCHIATRIST

Hello Bend (and neighbors!) My name is Leigh Anne Bressler, DO and I am currently taking new patients into my outpatient practice. I am working at Badlands TMS/Path to Awareness clinic, which opened in March of 2020. I am new to town but have lived in Oregon for over 8 years. I am an adult psychiatrist but have treated patients throughout the lifespan, from 6 to nearly 100, while practicing in rural Oregon for the last 4 years. I am committed to the non-judgmental and compassionate care of my patients. I aim to meet them where they are and collaboratively work towards changes that improve their lives. I am experienced in traditional psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic  interventions, while acknowledging the importance of and deepening my practices in novel and alternative approaches to mental and physical wellness. I believe all people deserve to be listened to carefully and heard deeply. I aim to educate patients while simultaneously learning from them in the process we participate in together.

I became an osteopathic physician in 2012 after graduating from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I then completed an internship and residency at OHSU in Portland, OR. I treat the full range of psychiatric illnesses and will be open to patients 16 years and older. I am available for medication management, psychotherapy or a combination of the two. I will also be helping provide TMS treatment to the community with the help of our experienced technicians.

When I’m not working, I enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking, foraging for mushrooms, disc golfing, and doing anything near water. At home, I love cooking and eating all manners of food with my family. I am an avid live music attendee and traveler. I greatly look forward to serving our community!
