Dr. Rachel Leigh Collins, ND, MPH (she/her) is a naturopathic physician, public health educator, and Eastside Natural Medicine’s first-year resident. She specializes in pediatric and adolescent mental healthcare and family medicine primary care. Dr. Rachel is passionate about delivering trauma-informed care for pediatrics, adolescents, and working with patients with sensory processing disorders, neurodivergence (ADHD, OCD, autism, etc.), and anxiety-related conditions.
Utilizing her educational background in psychology, nearly a decade of teaching experience, and her Master of Public Health work, Dr. Rachel understands health does not simply happen with the snap of a finger. She understands that we cannot always control the exact triumphs or challenges life throws at us, and yet, together, we can learn ways to begin showing up to life in alignment with our values, visions, and aspirations while creating lasting holistic changes for your health.
When she isn’t in the office with patients, she is likely out rummaging the forest with her partner, playing with her cats, thrifting, or sipping on a good cup of tea.
