Dr. Lauren Whitaker graduated from Bastyr University with her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. She is honored to join the team at One Sky Family Medicine as Dr. Tracy McDaniel’s resident while furthering her medical training.
Prior to her medical training, Dr. Whitaker received a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University. She uses her analytical background to apply a detailed approach to visits. She places great respect in the therapeutic relationship between doctor and patient and is honored to hold space for the healing process.
Dr. Whitaker practices naturopathic primary care medicine with a focus on women’s health and pediatrics. She has a passion for caring for the whole family through every stage of life. Her philosophy centers on empowering her patients to manage their own health by focusing on the foundations for health. When patients make small changes as active participants in their health, lasting improvements in health can be achieved.
She has additional training in biofeedback and craniosacral therapy which she uses to help her patients connect with their innate healing potential.
In her free time, she loves to adventure with her dog, Forrest, and can often be found hiking, gardening, exploring Seattle, or planning her next backpacking trip. She also enjoys live music and trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
Dr. Whitaker is now accepting new patients for women’s health and pediatric care.
