Hallie Pearson

Administrative Assistant

I recently graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Human Development and Psychological Services. I was a student-athlete who played college soccer, and transferred to Northwestern after playing my first two years at the University of Arizona. I was born in California, but grew up in Indiana and now reside in beautiful Arizona. I have come to pride myself in putting myself first with self care. One of my favorite things to do is watch the sunset, and be present for those breathtaking moments. One of my mottos is to take life day by day and to enjoy the little things. This allows me to slow down and find peace in letting life unfold each day.  

I became passionate about mental health after facing my own struggles with anxiety. I interned at Bodhi for my practicum experience, and realized becoming a licensed counselor is something I feel drawn to in my life. I now have been given the opportunity to work at Bodhi and I will be getting my masters starting in January of 2023. As of now, I really want to help student-athletes with their mental health and reduce the stigma that athletes have to be tough, and that they shouldn't struggle with mental health when so much is given to them. There is more to life than just sports, and I want to support others in any ways that I can. 

Teri Thorman

Intake Coordinator

After 25 years of scheduling appointments (among other things) Teri finally retired. Giving us the opportunity to have her join our team and coordinate all new intakes.

When Teri isn't answering our phones and responding to emails, she enjoys spending time with her 2 granddaughters and studying Spanish with friends in anticipation of moving to Costa Rica in the future!

Kayla Gehrling


I am currently a junior studying Human Development at Northwestern University. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago but moved to the city around the time I was in middle school. 

I am extremely passionate about mental health because of my own struggles with anxiety, depression, and ADHD. I love helping people in any way that I can and I aspire to attend graduate school after I graduate to become a licensed counselor.

In my free time, I love to crochet, play animal crossing, create things, and spend time with my family, friends, and dogs!


Bodhi Mascot

Star is our resident 'therapy dog' Although she's usually in Melanies office, it's not unusual for her to wander into the waiting room and greet our clients. (With permission of course!). Star is a Bichon Frise making her hypoallergenic.

When Star isn't at work she likes cuddling with her sister Boomer and chasing the possums that live in our yard-Bert & Ernie.
