Dr. Aimee Patterson, ND, is passionate about developing relationship-based connections which encourages individuals to look deeply into their lives and to let go of what no longer serves them so that they can step fully into a place of healing and happiness. This practice embodies the naturopathic principal of removing obstacles to health to allow space for abundance.
With a focus on Mental Health and Trauma Informed Care, I strive to meet people where they are on their path towards discovery. I believe that my role is as educator and cheerleader; to hold the space and help create a vision of what a radiant, full, peaceful life looks like for you, the unique individual. I know that by working together, you can transition towards a happier, brighter tomorrow.
I provide support for a variety of health concerns including:
- IV Therapy: oncology, neuropathy, athletic performance, nutrient deficiencies.
- Holistic Pelvic Floor Therapy: dyspareunia, incontinence, pelvic pain, birth trauma.
My dedication and focus is on you, as a unique person with your own story. I value and honor your decision to begin this journey by taking the time to really listen, ask questions and research literature which will guide us together towards achieving your goals.
