Teresa True, ND, VNMI

        Dr. True practices the full scope of family medicine, including women's health, pediatric, adolescent and adult care. She has a particular interest in correcting digestive function, endocrine and autoimmune disorders including thyroid disease, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, chronic heartburn, abdominal pain, bloating and other gastrointestinal disorders. 

Dr. True chose to become a doctor because she admires the intricate physiology of the human body and nature.  She decided to become a naturopathic doctor after experiencing working in a medical office and seeing the massive amounts of prescriptions and prescription refills daily.  It just didn't make sense.  She truly believes in the body's ability to heal and the importance of preventative and wellness care.  She is also passionate about helping empower patients in establishing a healthy lifestyle and habits to help prevent disease.

         In her free time, Dr. True enjoys spending time with her husband and their son, Ethan.  They enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood, camping at the coast and reading books.  She is a fan of crafting and can often be found crocheting, beading or scrap-booking.  Although life often gets in the way, she also loves to play golf.

Daniel Fargo, ND

Dr. Fargo practices the full scope of family medicine and has a great love for gastrointestinal health. Be it functional disorders like gas, bloating, GERD/heartburn, SIBO, IBS, or IBD, he wants to help people alleviate their ailments, whether they are new or have been endured for years.

His goal will be to see health issues disappear, not because they’ve been covered up, but because the underlying cause has actually been resolved.

Dani Gaudet, MScN
Nutrition

.  Dani relocated to Portland from New Orleans in 2013. At that time, she began working in the Portland restaurant industry.  She realized that here in Portland, every detail of how the food gets to the plate, was carefully curated and she had the opportunity to work with some of the most inspiring chefs and food creatives in the Pacific Northwest.  With a background in Psychology and a passion for food, she sought to combine the two, and that is what led her down the path of holistic nutrition. 

Each person’s unique upbringing, culture, geographic location, mental health, and finances, plays a significant role in how they eat and the labels they give to food.  Her goal is to help others understand that food does not need to be extreme, it does not need to be good or bad.  Together, we simply need to discover what will support, nourish, and heal our individual bodies.  Behavior changes and goal setting is an integral piece of her approach. Her approach takes all aspects of health and lifestyle into consideration.

 

Dani is here to help you with any aspect of nutritional counseling - meal planning, recipe ideas, food relationship coaching, navigating food preparation/ingredient lists with of allergies, sensitives, and/or intolerances in mind.

Katrina

Patient Insurance Advocate - Richardson Billing Services

Katrina comes from a family of caregivers, but followed a
little bit different path into medical billing. After her sister became a
naturopathic physician, Katrina saw the need for a billing specialist to
help this subset of doctors. She wanted to be able to be an advocate,
not only for physicians but also their patients, ensuring the fair
treatment and respect of everyone.

 

Katrina enjoys working directly with patients to help them navigate the confusing world of insurance and answer any questions they may have.

 

She currently lives in Washington State just outside of Seattle with her German Shepherd, Ava. Family is very important to Katrina and she tries to spend as
much time with them as possible. She also enjoys painting, baking,
and exploring the beautiful North West.
