In her own words:
Thank you for being here!
I am a licensed naturopathic physician based in Seattle, Washington. Originally from the east coast, I completed my naturopathic medical training at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon in 2013.
Following graduation, I moved to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii for one year where I completed a preceptorship, prepared for board examinations and fully experienced the raw beauty and power that is The Big Island! I then moved back to upstate New York and began practicing as a solo practitioner, prior to relocating to Richmond, Virginia and joining Richmond Natural Medicine (RNM) until 2019.
Since that time, I have shifted my practice to online consultations primarily focused on using energetic modalities, like homeopathy, as this is where I’ve witnessed the most gentle and profound transformations in folks. While I currently have an office space on Mercer Island in Seattle, I am doing tele-sessions exclusively due to the pandemic. I also see patients in a collaborative care setting through the Le Center of Health and Wellness in Bellevue, WA.
My clients have ranged in age from newborns to elderly folks. I’ve enjoyed working with people going through conventional cancer treatment, or who have a history of cancer, to support their whole-body health. I have also supported people with their concerns related to their gastrointestinal and endocrine systems, autoimmune disease, mental health and have provided naturopathic pediatric care. I love developing rapport with my patients and being an energetic-minded naturopathic doctor on their integrative medical teams! In most chronic disease states, there’s a significant mental and emotional component that naturopathic medicine is well-suited to address; this space is where my specialty lies.
I am whole-heartedly committed to anti-racism work and continue to educate myself on the intersection of health, medicine, social justice, oppressive systemic policies and structures. Knowledge of natural medicine belongs in everyone’s hands and it’s true roots – which often belong to indigenous communities – deserve acknowledgement and deep reverence. I aim to amplify the cultures, stories and history behind modalities I use in practice and I welcome feedback if you notice where I fall short in doing this. Additionally, if you have a community group or organization that you think could benefit from a speaking engagement or other event associated with my work, please contact me to discuss it further.
Finally, I’ve practiced yoga for over a decade and this past summer I completed virtual coursework in Meridian Yoga Therapy – a body-based therapy that beautifully rounds-out and complements traditional naturopathic tools. I’m excited to be embarking on a 200-hour yoga teacher training this spring with The Yoga Dojo. I also find great personal and clinical inspiration from astrology, gemstone therapy, somatic experiencing, polyvagal theory, human design and shamanism. I weave elements of these intricate schools of thought into my writing and care plans when I am called to, and when my client’s give consent for this piece during sessions. If you’re looking for a rich dive into one of these areas, I can also provide stellar referrals!
To my core, I believe that your healing is an art and it’s my goal to provide information and counsel while always honoring your autonomy and choices.
The feminine gifts of intuition and connection carry with them the power not only to understand and empathize, but also to revitalize and heal. – Pamela Sky Jeanne, ND, Healing Matters
