Our Providers


Catherine Fetters, PT, MPT, OCS

Lead Physical Therapist

Open and honest communication is key to how physical therapist Catherine Fetters works with patients. “I also feel that in order to progress and start feeling better, the work must continue when you leave the clinic,” she shares.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in business administration at Emory University, Catherine went on to get her master’s degree in physical therapy at the University of Puget Sound. She is board-certified in orthopedic physical therapy from the American Physical Therapy Association. Catherine believes in bringing clinical knowledge and evidence-based practice to her patients.

“I like to hear my patient’s narrative, their ‘story,’” Catherine explains. “I am so lucky to be able to spend an hour with my patients at each appointment and get to know them and work together on their goals for feeling and moving better.”

Two active daughters involved in sports, horseback riding, music, acting and social pursuits keep Catherine busy outside of work. She also enjoys stand-up paddleboarding, running, hiking, camping, bodyboarding and getting out to enjoy the local arts. 

Samantha Burgess, PTA

Physical Therapist Assistant

Samantha Burgess likes to connect with her physical therapy patients in a way that makes them feel empowered and engaged in their own treatment. “My ultimate goal is that my patients get well in a fun, positive way,” she says. After completing her physical therapist assistant program at Mount Hood Community College, Samantha went on to become a certified provider of Astym soft-tissue therapy. The main focus of her continuing education has been in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). She incorporates some manual techniques into her treatment, but her general approach is more exercise based. A native Northwesterner, Samantha appreciates Portland’s laid-back lifestyle and mild climate. She enjoys spending time with her family around the Northwest and considers her co-workers family too.

Alyssa Chavez, PT, DPT, Cert MDT

Physical Therapist

Alyssa earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Texas Woman’s University in Houston Texas in 2019. Following graduation, she worked in a variety of settings, an experience which shaped her approach to patient care and deepening her passion for physical therapy. For two years, Alyssa called western Tennessee home, practicing as a physical therapist in an outpatient clinic. Seeking new experiences and challenges, she embraced the role of a travel therapist which took her to Texas, Washington and Oregon. During this time she discovered Adventist Health, where she completed her final travel assignment in 2023 and joined the team full-time in 2024.

Alyssa’s practice philosophy is rooted in patient-centered care. She believes in moving away from a “one size fits all” approach and instead focuses on individualized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs and responses. Quality care, in her view, is about attentiveness to the patient’s condition, goals and progress, adapting interventions accordingly to optimize outcomes.

Throughout her career, Alyssa has been fortunate to learn from exceptional mentors and colleagues who have influenced her professional skills and personal growth. Their guidance and insights have shaped the way she practices, fostering a commitment to continuous learning and excellence in patient care. If you are seeking personalized, compassionate care focused on your specific needs and goals, she would be honored to be a part of our journey to improve your health and well-being.

Outside of work, you can find Alyssa exploring the city— including the amazing food scene Portland has to offer — or with her dog Axel at the dog park.

Brandon Holmes, PT

Physical Therapist

One of the joys of Brandon’s job is getting to know his patients and learning their stories, including what they like to do for fun. “If it’s important to you, then it’s important to me and it’s how I can help you back to living your best life,” he says. Brandon believes in viewing all systems of the body as they work together. The breathing system; the balance system; the visual system and — above all — the nervous system all must synchronize and integrate. He encourages collaboration and for his patients to ask questions. Communication is key.

Brandon completed his bachelor’s degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a degree in kinesiology and rehabilitation science. He participated in a collaborative research study called iCare with the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific to help better understand how exercise improves the health, fitness and quality of life for patients with cancer.
