Dr. Lara Thompson
Reiki Master, Craniosacral Therapist
I am here because my own medical history is full of stories where I was shuffled through different clinics and doctors' offices being told it's all in your head or take this toxic medication and forget about it. I didn't start to feel well until I found a provider that believed my experience helping me with naturopathic medicine.
I have been in the healthcare field for over 20 years - a former patient care specialist in emergency rooms, HIV and substance use case worker and clinical research coordinator. My current clinical focus ,aside from primary care, has been cases that don't seem to get better with other therapies or providers.
If you don't fall into any of the categories listed below - no worries - if you like my approach then chances are there's something I can do to help or if not refer you to someone that I trust.
Some of the many concerns that I have helped patients improve:
chronic pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, TMJ, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), vertigo, dizziness, hyper mobility, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
chronic fatigue, frequent colds and infections
urinary and sexual health concerns - erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness and pain with sex
allergies, sinus and ear infections; histamine intolerance; MCAS
PCOS, PMS/PMDD, hot flashes, mood swings, Thyroid issues - Hashimoto, Graves
injuries, car accidents, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries
stress, trouble sleeping, anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, grief and loss, addiction, and overall mental health
food allergies/sensitivities, nausea, reflux, constipation, diarrhea, Crohns, UC, colitis, IBS, gallbladder issues
chemical and environmental sensitivities
kids or adults that fall into the empathic or highly sensitive categories often reacting to medications or their environment differently than others
I use many different modalities in my practice including:
counseling, Integrative Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), systems constellation facilitation
homeopathy, flower essences, aroma-point essential oil therapy
high quality supplements and herbal medicine
Naturopathic Physical Medicine/Therapy
including gentle muscle and skeletal adjustments, craniosacral therapy, reiki, hydrotherapy, gua sha, lymphatic support, osteopathic, neural and visceral manipulation, and polyvagal therapies
I am a white-bodied ally, weight neutral, LGBTQIA* health care provider - this is a judgement and discrimination free space. I welcome all people and conditions - all bodies, all identities, all ages. The only thing that I ask of patients is that they are willing to work together with an open mind and heart.
My own life experience and health issues have given me extra sensory perception as well as empathy for life's ups and downs as a fellow human being - to simply support you.
The care that I offer is focused on gentle, non-invasive support of the body's natural processes and in line with the patient's needs- no matter what we discuss or do in the visit my goal is to do the best that I can to help guide you through whatever it is that you bring through the door.
Outside of the clinic you may find me with my rescue dogs, listening to a true crime podcast, re-reading The Alchemist or Women Who Run with Wolves, or out in nature somewhere.
