DR. MOIRA FITZPATRICK PHD, ND, FICPP, CHT

I am licensed both as a Clinical Psychologist and a Naturopathic doctor.

I have practiced multiple forms of transformational psychology for over 30 years. During mid life I returned to school to obtain a degree in Naturopathic Medicine to integrate a more holistic approach to healing. My journey has been to discover the essence of healing both within myself and as a facilitator for others. Currently, I practice from an integrative systems perspective and incorporate mind, body, emotions and spirit to support each person to break through to a new level of health.

“My passion is to empower and partner with you to help you achieve both happiness and your health goals.”

— Dr. Moira

I received my degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore Washington.  I had the opportunity to study with Tori Hudson, ND and completed a residency in Women’s Health and Integrative Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland Oregon.  During this time, I followed both conventional and naturopathic doctors and recognized that good medicine includes both the best of natural and conventional medicine. I founded an integrative medical practice in Seattle Washington, where I served as a primary care provider, focused on women’s health and functional endocrinology.  I have spent considerable time working with individuals diagnosed with cancer.  I offer a comprehensive approach for individuals struggling with emotional issues through integrating nutritional support, mind-body tools and providing medications when needed at the lowest effective doses.  I am a board certified diplomate-fellow in Psychopharmacology through the International College of Prescribing Psychologists and Prescribing Psychologists’ Register.

I received my doctorate in psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego California.  I founded a therapeutic community system for people with serious mental illness and changed the paradigm of healing for these individuals and their families.  The community system has continued to evolve beyond where I left it many years ago.   I am trained in many forms of Clinical Hypnotherapy, including transpersonal, NLP, Ericksonian and Medical hypnosis.

Teaching and the training of young professionals is a significant value of mine.  I spent time as the Director of Clinical Training and was a part of the faculty of the American School of Professional Psychology in Point Richmond California.  Most recently I was the inaugural vice president of Bastyr University in San Diego, California, which is a school of naturopathic medicine.
