Who We Are
Ryan Scott, PhD
I am honored to be the Director of this group practice of skilled therapists. I also work as a consultant to other group practice owners and founders.
Darcy Knight, M.Ed., is a co-owner of Vista Counseling and the director of our Wellness Center. But she also loves greeting clients in our lobby, which she helped design with a spa in mind. She knows the practice from top to bottom, and can answer nearly every question you can think of, from billing to where we got our great photos! When not helping our team lead the practice, she is busy spending time with her kids, camping, skiing, gardening, enjoying the mountains, and playing ultimate frisbee.
Julie Liszka, MSW is our Assistant Director of Operations. She has many roles with us, including the office manager, evaluation coordinator and ADHD evaluation assessor for Vista. With her free time, she enjoys riding her bike, camping, and playing kickball.
Angie Mayol is one of those smiling faces you’ll see when you walk into Vista and you can hear her smile on the phone. With the perfect mix of experience in hospitality and mental health, she is a great addition to our team. When not helping our clients feel as welcome as possible, she enjoys time kayaking, camping, gardening, and spending time with her kids.
Melissa Baker works in the Vista office as an administrative assistant and billing specialist. She has been a wonderful asset to our growing company since she moved here from California in 2014. Outside of the office, Melissa is also a full-time mother of two girls. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, being outside, fishing, camping, and spending time with friends.
Annette Scallion is a Billing Specialist at Vista Counseling. She keeps current on the ever-changing world of Medical Billing to ensure accuracy of claims processing. Her attentive customer service skills help her to provide the best overall experience for our Vista clients, ensuring their needs are met and their problems solved. In her spare time, her interests include travel, volunteering, and roller derby.
Daniel O. joined the Vista admin team in December 2021 and works in our Portland office as an intake specialist. Daniel is eager to learn and adds a lot to our team. He enjoys binge-watching documentaries, taking tech classes, and escaping to a fantasy world playing video games. He is also a lover of the fine arts and once competed in the Merrie Monarch Hula Competition (some call it the Olympics of hula).
Erin Gillingham has worked in our Portland office since 2021. Her friendly voice and personality are a great addition to our team. In her free time, she is a murder mystery actor, trivia buff, karaoke aficionado, and musical theatre fan.
