Why Dr. Dickey?

Dr. Liz DickeyA Forward-Thinking Doctor

First and foremost, I believe you can be healthy. Much more than disease management of your present health condition is possible. The fresh, forward-thinking perspective is that feeling better (palliation) is the beginning of health, not the endpoint.

Wellness care is the new and most effective model. My mission is to help you become well again and to maintain that wellness for your lifetime.

The innovative perspective on symptoms is that they are information - a doorway to understanding what is out of harmony and what is needed to restore health. When the underlying causes of your symptoms are addressed, great changes can take place.

Dr. Dickey Listens Deeply

In my wellness practice, time is devoted to listening deeply to all of your concerns and getting to know you well. You are seen and understood as a unique, multi-dimensional, and interconnected being. All aspects of your health, life, and environment are considered and may provide keys to health restoration.

Together we will attain a clear understanding of why you don’t feel well and what you need to become healthy again. Then I help you to make the changes that will enable you to enjoy a life of quality and longevity.

A Truly Holistic Doctor

I am one of only a small number of people who is licensed as both a naturopathic doctor and a mental health practitioner. The benefit to you is truly holistic care.

Surpassing just feeling better, to actually restoring health, is possible when your body is nourished with what it needs and is unburdened from what is harmful. This can be achieved in manageable steps.

Courtesy Insurance Billing

I accept insurance reimbursement as either an in-network or out-of-network provider, depending on the insurer. Insurance billing to many insurers is provided as a courtesy to patients.

Basic Medicare does not recognize naturopathic doctors, however there are a few Medicare secondary insurance plans that reimburse tor naturopathic care.

Professional Training

Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND), 1995, National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM). A medical school known for excellence in teaching of holistic medicine. In addition to the core curriculum, I also completed all of the advanced classes and teaching clinics that were offered in homeopathic medicine. I continue to use NCNM’s fine library and attend continuing education offerings to further my knowledge.

Master of Social Work (MSW), 1981, University of Washington (U-W). I was lucky to attend the U-W School of Social Work because they had an innovative program in Mental Health Services to Women.

I also learned effective stress management tools, essential for health restoration and disease prevention.
