Dr. Alexandra Gotea is a Naturopathic Physician & Chinese Medicine Practitioner in Southeast Portland, Oregon
For the past decade I have dedicated my life to bring individuals to a state of wellbeing both as a registered nurse and now as a naturopathic physician. I wholeheartedly believe in co-creating a partnership with you and working together towards a place of health and healing.
I believe in the communion between mind, emotions, body and spirit and the effect these mutually have on one another and manifest as symptoms of dysfunction in your body. I can help you balance them, which is key to the healing process. Therefore, I strive to find and teach you about the blockages that prevent this balance from occurring, restoring your body to health. Freeing up the energy your body was using for healing and repurposing it in ways that serve your life in health.
Being trained in Naturopathic Medicine and Classical Chinese Medicine and providing nursing care in a high acuity setting in New York City, gave me the tools to ‘read’ nuances of each persons’ body. Through trainings and personal experiences, I have learned that in many ways: our bodies are our storytellers! By listening deeply to the body, I am able to attune to the expression ‘of a struggle’ to health in you and impart this knowledge back to you. I support you as you take this insight and learn to reorganize in a way that will serve your highest aspirations.
I work to create a space where you can be at ease and at home. I feel this is what sustains a trusting relationship. In my care for you, I weave a nurturing environment to help you access your healing potential, a key in our journey together towards a radiant healthier you.
