Dr. Sinclair received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 2003. Prior to this she received her pre-medical education at Humboldt State University in Northern California. Her Bachelors in Science in Interdisciplinary Studies allowed her to create her own degree blending three of her passions, science, psychology and art. Her degree major was Biomedical Studies while her minor was in Biological Psychology, a budding field which deals with the neurotransmitters involved with behavior and mood. This combination of education served as a foundation to build upon with her Naturopathic training, and uniquely prepared her for her current practice focus on mood disorders.
After graduation Dr. Sinclair began practicing with Claudia Trombly, MD and Rosalyn Kenney, ARNP at Happy N' Healthy Family Medicine, a progressive medical clinic in Southern New Hampshire. Practicing in an integrative clinic helped to further Dr. Sinclair’s medical training and she enjoyed collaborating with her patients primary care physicians to best serve her patients. In addition to tuning her skills in Primary Care, Dr. Sinclair’s practice expanded into specializing in hormone re-balancing and treating digestive disorders.
While practicing in NH, Dr. Sinclair was the proud winner of New Hampshire Magazine’s Readers Choice award for Top Doctor, both 2010 and 2011!
While both her and her husband enjoyed living in New Hampshire and it was difficult for her to leave a thriving practice, in June 2011 they returned to Seattle to be closer to their family. Since arriving on the West Coast she has joined forces with Jennifer Lush, ND to create North Seattle Natural Medicine located in Edmonds, WA.
Why I became a Naturopathic Doctor
I became ill when I hit puberty. Almost overnight I went from being a healthy kid who was vibrant and full of energy to a miserable teenager who suffered from digestive disorders, hormonal and mood imbalances and overwhelming fatigue. After seeing several different physicians with no improvement to my health, my mom looked to Natural Medicine to help her struggling daughter. Being a stubborn teen I was reluctant to admit that the natural remedies that my mom had given me were truly helping. When I started my college career I learned about Naturopathic Medicine and knew that since I was helped so immensely with natural remedies, that it was my goal to help others find their way to wellness like I did.
I am glad that I have suffered with my own health problems because it has allowed me to be more understanding and compassionate to what my patients are going through. I know first hand how difficult it is to be sick, and how hard it can be to make the lifestyle changes needed and adopt a routine that brings you health. I use my compassion and understanding of both sides of illness as resource to help my patients on their path to wellness.
