I am committed to helping others define who they are.  I believe that our past or life choices influence our behavior, but they do not define who we are. One of my missions is to assist clients to find meaning in their experiences and learn to develop a sense of peace that comes from making sense of our experiences.

Jericha, Office manager

Hey all!

My name is Jericha and I'm the office manager here at Dragonfly Support Services. I was born in Alaska and have called North ID home for over 15 years. I graduated in 2015 and have worked in mental health since 2016. I've been fortunate to work with phenomenal providers over the years and serve our community through a wide range of services, including outpatient psychotherapy, diagnostic evaluations, residential programs, and support for individuals on the spectrum and their families. My goal as office manager is to provide a welcoming environment and support our clients as they navigate their way through life's ups and downs. The world offers a wide variety of experiences for every individual and I'm dedicated to ensuring that our clients know that we are here to assist where we can.

Outside of the office, I can usually be found fishing or camping, spending time with family and friends, or cozied up at home with my cat and working on home projects.
