Dr. Danica Woods, ND
Dr. Danica Woods is a Colorado native recently returned from her sojourn in Washington State to become a registered Naturopathic Doctor in her home state. At a young age, she knew that she wanted to be a part of a transformative medical community, but it wasn’t until later in life that she figured out just how that would look. Initially training to go to a traditional physician assistant program, Dr. Woods realized that the typical toolbox to solve increasingly more common problems like anxiety and depression just ultimately wouldn’t work for everyone. She sought out other solutions to try and help her future clients with these issues, which ultimately lead her to become a certified integrative and holistic life coach. It was during a particularly challenging personal development retreat that she learned about naturopathic medicine. Upon doing her research, Dr. Woods learned that this was the style of medicine that resonated most deeply with her intention for her clients, while offering her many more tools and resources to recommend to people struggling than the options offered with conventional medicine. Dr. Woods considers herself a life-long student and continues to learn more about the healing herbs, homeopathic and flower essence remedies, physical medicine techniques, Mind-Body connection, and changes to nutrition to support her clients. She has gleaned experience by working with women on hormone balancing, homing in her physical medicine and healing touch skills, and integrating of Mind-Body medicine techniques. As such, Dr. Woods is able to approach her patients from a whole-person perspective that allows her to truly get at the root of dis-ease to allow her clients start their journey towards healing. She has goals for every person she works with to take responsibility and ownership for their health, to strive towards wellness in all aspects of life, and emphasize the health of mind, body, and soul in order become fully integrated with their intention and purpose in this world. She knows that this isn’t an easy journey and has dedicated her life and practice towards walking this journey with you and facilitating your healing climb.
Dr. Danica Woods graduated from Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington in 2019 with a degree from the school of naturopathic medicine. Her other education and training includes a certification as an Integrative Holistic Life Coach from the Legacy Training Program in Denver, Colorado, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Integrative Physiology from University of Colorado in Boulder. She is a current member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP). If she’s not in the office or conducting telemedicine appointments, you can find her with her husband working on projects around their home, meditating-through-crochet, reading books, listening to Brené Brown podcasts, going on hikes, or walking/playing ball with/endlessly petting the family dog, Zeke.
