how began...

In 2006, a shared workplace brought together Dr. Jennifer O'Leary, Andrea Thompson, LMT and Amanda Casley, LMT.  We became instant friends due to our common interests in music, the outdoors, good food and life.  Our friendship was strengthened by the deep passion that we share for natural health, personal growth and patient care.  As we started to discuss our own goals and dreams, an image of an integrative clinic began to form.  On New Year's Eve of 2009, the three of us put our ideas and plans to paper and laid out a path that would connect us for the rest of our lives.  We envisioned a large clinic in a beautiful country setting that focuses on women's health, natural fertility, birthing and prenatal momma and pediatric care.  aja would offer a large organic community garden to play in, open space to walk the land and enjoy the various farm life, forested areas to hike, private spots for meditation and huts for birthing.  We would offer classes on nutrition, cooking, gluten-free living, yoga, fertility education, infant massage, couples massage, birthing tools, lactation and breastfeeding.  This was the starting place of aja...

where we are now...

Dr. O'Leary and her husband, Lennon, purchased a home in February 2011, as a first step towards aja.  Within that home, Andrea and Dr. O'Leary created a beautiful and professional environment that encouraged openness, laughter, relaxation and health.  Plenty of changes took place in 2014 and 2015.  Andrea took a leave of absence to travel internationally for over a year, and continue her education in different healing systems.  In September of 2015, aja moved its location to Clackamas, Oregon.  Amanda completed her studies at Birthingway College of Midwifery, and she is currently apprenticing a fellow Midwife.

Here at aja, we offer the highest-quality Naturopathic Medicine, Massage Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy for the whole family while specializing in women's health.  Our combined experience of Natural Fertility, pregnancy preparation, Fertility Massage, Arvigo Therapy, and Pregnancy Massage help men and women achieve optimal wellness to conceive a happy and healthy baby.  Dr. O'Leary also enjoys treating Hormone, Thyroid, Adrenal, Skin and Digestive Imbalances.  Andrea utilizes Craniosacral Therapy to treat infants with Birth Traumas, Autism, Lactation Issues, as well as adults with Physical and Emotional Traumas.

Each person who walks through aja's front door is treated as unique with very specific needs that require an individualized treatment plan.  We enjoy collaborating on patient care to help you achieve your health goals.  If we don't have all the answers for you or if you want to expand your integrative health team, then we are happy to utilize a referral network of holistic-minded providers.  Our goal is to empower and support you on your journey to health and wellness…

our soon-to-be future...

You may be wondering what the future of aja holds.  We envision a small clinic with both Dr. O'Leary and a Pediatric Naturopath treating women and their families.  Andrea will be focusing her attention on Fertility Massage, Arvigo Therapy, and Craniosacral Therapy; additional therapists may be available for more traditional massage.  Amanda will partner with other Midwives to care for women during their pregnancy and birth.  aja may also incorporate Acupuncture.  We have an evolving vision and process that we know, in the end, will greatly serve the community.

We are actively searching for the perfect property, South of Portland, for the future location of aja.  Our desire for a large piece of land that can hold a family clinic, organic garden, farm, forest and our homes may seem like a dream to some.  For us, it is a reality in the making.  We welcome you to you join us on this journey!
