Welcome

  • WE ARE A GROUP OF NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIANS IN THE PORTLAND, OREGON AREA DEDICATED TO HELPING EVOLVE THE PRACTICE OF HEALTHCARE.

Thank you for visiting our website. We're a group of Naturopathic Physicians based in Portland, Oregon who are dedicated to sharing our collective wisdom, to providing support and education for naturopathic physicians, students, and other health care practitioners in the area of psychospiritual medicine.

Psychospiritual medicine is a broad term that each of us defines somewhat differently. Namely, psychospiritual medicine is an integrative approach which has as its basis the understanding that one cannot separate the physical from the spiritual, the mental, and the emotional and therefore any treatment of disease must include in its theoretical understanding and practical application these factors which influence health and disease.

We each contextualize the 'psychospiritual medicine' within our own practices and personal healthcare. Visit the Who We Are page to learn more about us and see how each of us defines 'psychospiritual medicine'. 

Please explore the website, join us at our events and online, or send an email to say hello, offer comments and suggestions, or to get involved. We look forward to meeting you.

  • the healing power of nature – Vis medicatrix naturae
  • first do no harm – Primum no nocer
  • treat the whole person
  • identify and treat the cause – Tolle causam

Vision
Our vision is an evolving practice of healthcare, one which is infused with the understanding that health includes biological, emotional, cognitive, social, and spiritual perspectives. We envision a world of skillful and compassionate practitioners co-creating individual and global health with conscious Presence that begins within each person and is inclusive of all life.

 

We support bringing psychospiritual awareness to the practice of naturopathic medicine and the process of healing. We listen deeply to our clients/patients as an integral practice. With the understanding that healing comes from within, we work within the framework that serves the patient. Seeing our work with clients as a gift, we honor this relationship and uphold the boundaries of the individual and the therapeutic relationship with respect. As practitioners of naturopathic psychospiritual medicine, we recognize the necessity of doing our own healing.
