  • Spiritual/Energetic symptoms that may be helped with our natural approach:

    • Identifying your purpose in life

    • Balancing your internal energy so you feel energized and eager for the day.

    • Becoming in tune with your inner wisdom, your inner intuitive capabilities so you can rely on your own judgement in making decisions, and in knowing what works the best for you when it comes to your life and your health.

    • Being able to sense energy patterns to know what foods, environments and people provide the best support for you.

As a note, Dr. Colleen is one of the few, if not the only, Washington State practitioner who is licensed to practice all of these: Naturopathic Medicine, Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture and Hypnotherapy. Individually, each of these healing modalities is powerful. Combined together, they are even more effective at helping you treat the underlying issues that may be contributing to your symptoms.
