Dr. Lauren Hacker, ND

Dr. Lauren Hacker’s vision is to use her intuition, caring, and resourcefulness to inspire and empower people to become connected to themselves, their communities, and nature. One way she fulfills this vision is to guide patients to identify and resolve the root cause of their health concerns so that they can live better lives and achieve their goals. She loves teaching patients how to listen to their bodies and own their health. Although she works with all patients, her practice focuses on women’s health and preconception care, hormone and thyroid imbalances, digestive disorders, stress, and mild anxiety and depression.
Originally from Colorado, Dr. Hacker feels fortunate enough to have grown up in such a beautiful state where a connection to nature is easy to achieve. After attending Western Colorado University in Gunnison, she studied naturopathic medicine, craniosacral therapy, and visceral manipulation at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. She is a registered Naturopathic Doctor in Colorado and an adjunct professor in the Integrative Healthcare program at MSU Denver in addition to practice.
Dr. Hacker is also an avid book nerd, weightlifter, swing dancer, and animal lover with a penchant for learning. True to her Colorado roots, when she’s not in the office or reading books, you can find her outside in the Colorado sunshine hiking trails with friends. She also enjoys spending time with her family and creating hands-on learning opportunities for patients and healthcare professionals alike!
Dr. Hacker is also a member of her state and national associations, the AANP and COAND, and previously served as Secretary of the Association for Naturopathic Revitalization, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating nature-based experiential conferences for patients and naturopathic practitioners.
