Meredith EvansBehavioral Health Director, LMFT

Meredith EvansBehavioral Health Director, LMFT

Meredith Evans was born and raised in the Yuba-Sutter area. She began studying psychology at Yuba Community College while still completing her high school diploma.

She went on to complete her Bachelor Degree in Psychology at CSU, Chico and her Masters in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage Family Therapy, while working full time and attending Chapman University.

Meredith has held numerous jobs while obtaining her therapy license; working as a teacher, a family advocate, and a sexual health educator.

After becoming a licensed therapist, she focused her efforts on transitional aged youth in the criminal justice system in the greater Sacramento area.

Meredith’s love for the local community led her to concentrating her job efforts back to the Yuba-Sutter area, and she became a Forensic Mental Health Specialist with Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health.

Meredith quickly moved up the ranks to become the department’s Program Manager and developed the Forensic Behavioral Health Program.

The county structure changed, and Meredith then began overseeing Psychiatric Emergency Services and Forensics for Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health.

Meredith shaped the behavioral health crisis program embedded within Adventist Health +Rideout, which led to many state and national awards.

As her leadership goals advanced, Meredith was hired as the Behavioral Health Director with Peach Tree Health. Meredith’s vision is to promote wellbeing through mental health and substance use programs that aide and improve access to underserved populations.
