Greetings! I accept patients for anxiety, depression, gender-affirming care, LGBTQIA care, and am kink and poly friendly. Are you looking to work with a medical provider who can help to evaluate and manage anxiety and depression? Adults with anxiety, depression, or gender-dysphoria may struggle with work, relationships, and family. I offer medication management and/or counseling. I come from a wholistic lens often including nutrition (additive), sleep care, joyful movement, and weight-inclusion. From a social justice lens, I focus on Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness-Based-CBT, and Strength-Based Therapy. I am honored to compassionately support you through your life transitions, to support your resiliency, and to support you towards the life you really want. I start with a two-session intake including actively gathering information from you, after which a plan is formulated by the 3rd session, based on what seems to be blocking your progress to your goals. A total of 12-sessions is usually needed to get you on the path to reaching your stated goals and longer is an option as needed. I offer telemedicine only. I have 15+ years of experience with supporting mental health via integrative medicine. I have been a naturopathic physician with a mental health specialty and OB/GYN specialty for 14 years, an RN/ARNP/CNM-midwife for 6 years, and a meditation instructor for 5 years. My degrees are from Michigan State University, Bastyr University, and Seattle University. I am a dog momma to a Bernese Mt Dog named Bella and I enjoy regular horse rides. I am an auntie, doula/midwife, and goddess-mother to many beloved children in my life and to a sweet pony named Archie. On the weekends you can find me in the woods or attending to my indoor gardens.
Megan Gonzales attained a Masters of Science in Acupuncture and Doctorate in Naturopathic medicine through Bastyr University and now acts as the practice administrator for the clinic. If you have any questions and contact the clinic via email or phone Megan will be the person on the other end.
