Primary Care   Naturopathic Physicians are family physicians offering routine and special exams, lab work, diagnosis, and treatment of acute and chronic conditions. We specialize in the use of diet, nutritional and herbal supplements, and lifestyle counseling to help our patients achieve optimal health.
laura Laura Shelton, ND: I graduated in 1983 from Bastyr University. I love untangling the root causes of complex chronic illnesses and finding the treatment modalities that best fit not only the disease but also the patient. I enjoy treating the whole family, from earaches to menopause. In my off-hours, I am a musician and a grandma.
emily Emily Sharpe, ND: Discovering Your Health. My work is search and discovery of the causes of your disease, then teaching you how to care for those causes. I have a general family practice with specialties of fatigue, thyroid, gastrointestinal, allergies, hormonal and menopausal issues. My passion for these specialties is rooted in my personal journey through disease and health. I love helping you feel your very best. When I am not helping you, I am exercising, avidly reading, visiting with family & friends or cooking with my loving husband. On an especially wonderful day we are camping, hiking and boating the beautiful Northwest. www.doctorsharpe.com
kelsi Kelsi Ervin, ND: Supported Self Healing. I believe our bodies know how to heal, but sometimes they have forgotten or something has gotten in the way. I enjoy supporting men, women, and children in learning tricks for staying healthy and for feeling better while finding what has gotten in the way of their health. Come on in and we can work together. Otherwise, I’ll be off fishing, watching the mountains and plants from a canoe, dancing, or playing my fiddle. Conditions I can help with are many, including: low energy and depression, anxiety, female concerns, digestion problems, blood sugar issues, allergies, and cancer. www.doctorsunshine.net

Homeopathic Medicine   Homeopathic practitioners use a totality approach towards homeostasis, or balance, in healthcare. In today's society, it is common for clients to be viewed in terms of their segmented parts; e.g. insomnia, troublesome acne, or gastric reflux. Regardless of the complaint, homeopaths know that each individual is completely unique in make up, with different backgrounds, lifestyles, and temperaments, and so we find solutions which encompass the individual in entirety! Homeopaths use scientifically prepared, all natural remedies to strengthen and encourage the body's own innate healing abilities to systematically remove dis-ease, so that health and well-being can safely be restored.
monique Monique Arsenault, CC, CHE (UK): My training was completed at the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London, England, where many of the world's leading homeopaths go to lecture. I was also able to dispense remedies and establish a clinical practice at Helios Pharmacy in Covent Garden, a bustling hubbub of great people doing great things with remedies on a daily basis!! I love learning - sculpting knowledge about life, about ourselves, our remedies. I'm passionate about most things, but in my spare time I love thinking of what to tell my homeopath at my next visit, swimming, cycling, and eating Indian food. www.homeopathichealthcare.net

CranioSacral Therapy  CranioSacral Therapists use gentle hands-on techniques to help release internal tensions within the body and seek to act as facilitators, helping clients get in touch with their body's own Inner Wisdom, that part within each of us that knows everything about our health. We pay particular attention to the membrane which surrounds the brain and spinal cord, the dura mater. All nerves and blood vessels going to the brain and cord must pass through this membrane and releasing tensions within the dura can have a profound effect upon the way that the body functions.

The Bellingham CranioSacral Therapy Center, located at the Natural Health Clinic, has CranioSacral Therapists providing a variety of related techniques. Please see our website for more information: www.bellinghamcst.com

tim Tim Hutton, PhD, CST-D: The focus of my practice as a massage therapist is exclusively CranioSacral Therapy and the related modalities of Visceral Manipulation and Lymph Drainage. Most of my clients see me because they are experiencing some sort of chronic pain or dysfunction, but I also see clients for well-care. In addition to my private practice, I also travel extensively teaching CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release for the Upledger Institute. My other pnmary interests at the moment are Tai Chi and golf, both of which I am very much in the process of learning. (Lic. MA07511)
dave Dave Campbell, LMP, CTP: My work includes a combination of CranioSacral Therapy, Trager® Work, and Visceral Manipulation. I have been a nationally certified massage therapist and a Certified Trager® Practitioner since 1994, and began adding CranioSacral Therapy to my practice in 1997. I enjoy teaching and am currently an Instructor of Kinesiology at the Spectrum Center School of Massage. I have also written and illustrated a Kinesiology textbook (see it at www.bodylightbooks.com). In my personal time, I like to play guitar and sing, play with Daisy (our black lab), and go for hikes to enjoy the beautiful northwest scenery. (Lic. MA15651)

Psychotherapy
carolyn Carolyn Koehnline, MA: I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I have had a private psychotherapy practice in Bellingham since 1992. I work with adults experiencing self-sabotage, indecision, depression, anxiety, creative blocks, ADD, and the effects of trauma. When it feels helpful to the client I include the creative modalities, Emotional Freedom Technique, EMDR and other helpful tools and techniques. I have extensive experience teaching groups and supporting individuals to creatively navigate "clutter," and other practical dilemmas of daily living. I am also a Certified Journal to the Self® Instructor and regularly offer journal classes. I'm in the process of getting my Certification as a Journal Therapist through the Therapeutic Writing Institute. In my free time I love to write, and make music and art. www.confrontingclutter.com

Massage Therapy
christin Christin Nelson, LMP: In our busy lives we often disconnect from our bodies, not realizing that if we take the time to nurture ourselves, our load will feel lighter and our lives will be more balanced and abundant. I have been in practice for over fifteen years, and have enjoyed every minute of it! If it's treatment for any injury or chronic pain that you are in need of, I can help. If it's relaxation and nurturing that's missing, I can offer that too. I enjoy working with all ages and body types. I will develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs. I accept several types of insurance including MVA and L&I.
