As Pohala Clinic grows we have hand selected all our Medical Providers. We admire those who have a shared vision for healing and who want to be present to patients in a changing tumultuous world. We want providers who can bridge mainstream medicine to holistic ways of healing. While being experts in traditional medicine Pohala providers are also experts in an array of modalities. We are pleased to announce our newest provider!
Dr. Alexandra R Gotea ND, LAc is a licensed Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist. Her path to medical training is rooted in her nursing studies and providing nursing care in a high acuity setting in New York City.
She wholeheartedly believes in working together in a trusting relationship with her patients towards a place of health and healing. She believes in the communion between mind, emotions, body and spirit and the effect these mutually have on one another and manifest as symptoms of dysfunction. Balancing these is key to the healing process.
Her nursing experience and extensive training in Naturopathic and Classical Chinese Medicinegave her the tools to ‘read’ nuances of each persons’ body. Thru her studies, trainings and personal experiences, she learned that in many ways: our bodies are our storytellers! It is about deeply listening to the body and attuning to the expression of the impediment to health in an individual.
Dr. Alexandra R Gotea works towards creating a space where the patient can feel at home and be part of a nurturing environment to access their own healing potential.
