Dr. Laura Gouge graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2015, and then completed a competitive two-year family practice residency with additional rotations in mental health. She works with children and adults with an array of health issues, but has special interest in mental health, ADHD, digestive disorders, and women's health.
Dr. Laura has unique experience as a naturopathic physician and worked for over three years as the medical director for a mental health clinic in Portland, Oregon completing psychiatric assessments and managing medications. She has additional training in women's health, menopause, and bioidentical hormones. Dr. Laura's goal is always to focus on underlying causes of illness so medication is not necessary long term.

Her practice philosophy is rooted in weight-neutral medicine, Health at Every Size, and trauma-informed care.
