Lifestyle Counseling

Naturopathic doctors are doctors who listen.

Each appointment allows enough time for us to gather information about all aspects of health acknowledging psychological well being. We emphasize the importance of addressing psychological, emotional and spiritual health as part of a holistic approach to health care. Naturopathic doctors are trained as basic counselors to discuss obstacles to cure and offer suggestions and techniques for optimal emotional health and will refer to more qualified mental health professionals if warranted. With most individuals we do lifestyle counseling around stress, sleep habits, diet, relationships and exercise. These issues can be huge contributing factors to health and act as obstacles to cure. At Pacifica Naturopathic Medicine we always include a number of lifestyle tips and basic counseling techniques to address all the different aspects of health and offer you well rounded care.
