Dr. Lila Derickson is a naturopathic physician who strives to empower and support people with mental and emotional health concerns. She offers curiosity, compassion, non-judgment, expertise, and insight to her patients. In her practice, she addresses both the symptoms and causes of mental health conditions with botanical medicine, nutrition, lifestyle approaches, orthomolecular psychiatry, pharmaceutical management, and mind-body based counseling.
Conditions that she works with include eating disorders, body image concerns, ADHD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, drug and alcohol use disorders, insomnia, and stress management. She welcomes people of all shapes and sizes, and approaches treatments from a health-based, not weight-based, perspective.
Dr. Derickson earned her degree in naturopathic medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. She is also completing the final year of her Master of Science in Integrative Mental Health, a program which has greatly increased her skillfulness in mind-body medicine techniques.
In her free time she can be found curled up with a book, taking walks in the park, or trying to figure out how to get her black cat to show up in pictures.
