Dr. Lara Thompson
Naturopathic and Homeopathic Physician
Reiki Master, Craniosacral Therapist
The care that I offer is focused on gentle, non-invasive support of the body's natural processes in line with the patient's needs. My approach works best with people that are willing to do the work that healing requires with my support. Schedule a Welcome to Wellness, no cost visit, to see how we could work together.
I have been in both the clinical research and medical field for over 20 years, bridging the gap between heart and science. I became the doctor that I am today because I was frustrated with the current medical system and my experience as both a patient and caregiver.
Clinical interests include psychoneuroimmunology and psychoneuroendocrinology - the interactions between mental health, behavior, the nervous system, immune function, and hormonal regulation.

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 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.
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. I am a white-bodied ally, neurodivergent, LGBTQIAP* trauma informed, weight neutral health care provider - this is a no discrimination and bully 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.
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.
Schedule a complimentary Welcome to Wellness visit to see how we can get you feeling better.
