DR. GLYNN'S BACKGROUND AND TRAINING
Dr. Glynn is a Seattle native specializing in naturopathic family medicine, and especially enjoys helping adults, children and teens living with autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, depression (post-partum and otherwise) and ADHD. Dr. Glynn loves working with families on the more difficult aspects of daily life, like behavioral struggles, attention span, insomnia and sleep issues, and healthy eating. Dr. Glynn uses mostly step-by-step nutritional changes, targeted nutrient therapies, behavioral and emotional counseling, and biofeedback to help her patients build on their strengths rather than focus on weaknesses.
Dr. Glynn’s experience in the fields of disability and rehabilitative medicine make her uniquely qualified to approach all facets of family medicine with a positive attitude and an open mind. During her time in the field of Recreational Therapy, Dr. Glynn worked at Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane, with Patch Adams M.D. at his Gesundheit Institute, as a coach for junior Paralympic wheelchair sports competitors, and as a certified YogaFit yoga instructor for kids and adults. Her education in Bastyr University’s Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program gave her the best of both worlds in regards to medicine; she is able to provide for her patients the innovations of modern science strengthened by the wisdom of traditional healing. While in the program, Dr. Glynn completed supplementary specialty shifts in biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, nutritional modification, health education, ASD/ADHD, counseling, homeopathy, and pediatric medicine. Dr. Glynn went on to become certified in Advanced Pediatric Therapeutics from Boucher Institute of Natural Medicine in Vancouver, BC. She has completed additional training to gain expertise in genomic medicine and nutrigenomics, the use of genetic information to individualize health plans with patients. She currently owns and sees patients at both Practical Family Health and the nonprofit PNW Sustainable Medicine in Edmonds to serve the greater Seattle area. She also offers video visits for established patients.
In her spare time, Dr. Glynn loves creative and DIY projects at home, adventuring with her husband in their camper, trying to keep up with her rescue pup Riot, and spending time with family.
