If you are highly motivated to be an egalitarian partner in achieving the highest level of wellness available to you, to develop your personal health integrity and to make deliberate execution of a thoughtful and collaborative healthcare plan, Dr. Sexton is eager to work with you!
Dr. Sexton is a Naturopathic Doctor and clinical research scientist at the University of Washington, where she has studied neuro-inflammatory and neurodegenerative disease since 2004. Prior to this, she practiced midwifery and as an herbalist in Texas for ten years. Her undergraduate degree was in horticulture where she specialized in the phytochemistry of plant medicine.
From this background, a unique approach has emerged which fuses her keen interest in patients with the natural pharmacy of plants. Each patient has a story, both in physical symptoms and personal narrative. With a focus on close listening to and interpretation of the underlying themes in the patient’s life, the imperative of ‘treating the whole person’ begins with creating a new script for life!
Current clinical interests:
- Complementary Neurology and Pain Management
- Chronic Disease
- Elimination of poly-pharmacy
