Greetings, and congratulations on taking your first steps toward achieving your health goals! I am Lauren Tessier, a Naturopathic physician, with love for all that is New England. As a native to the region, I have spent much time around the ocean, mountains, and forests of the area, and am continually enamored by our beautiful environment, and of course, our ever changing seasons. My love for all things related to nature is the source of the passion I have for Naturopathic Medicine. At a young age, I realized I had a fondness for helping people and also a strong interest in alternative and healthy lifestyles. It was this passion, influenced by a life changing service trip to the Guatemalan rain forest that spurred me towards the study of Naturopathic Medicine.
During the final year of my undergraduate study at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy
in Boston, I was faced with the decision of how to pursue my developing interests. When I realized that becoming a Naturopathic physician would fulfill these interests, the choice was made. I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors of Science in Premedical Sciences and Health Psychology.
I attended Bastyr University
, a Naturopathic medical school, the leader of innovation in natural health education, just outside of Seattle, Washington. There I underwent five years of in depth, and at times arduous academic and clinical training. Although extremely challenging, I loved every minute of it, and I look forward to sharing the information I have learned with my New England community.
As a Naturopathic physician, I have developed a vast amount of knowledge and strong problem solving skills. Although such traits are important, they must be accompanied by empathy and compassion in order to be truly effective. I have made this simple human truth the cornerstone of my practice. I believe that patient-centered care, education, and personal empowerment are the keys to success. We will work side by side as we achieve your goals on your journey towards health.
My interests, aside from Naturopathic Medicine, share the underlying commonality of environmental awareness and appreciation. I support eco-conscious living, locavorism, and sustainability. I enjoy spending my free time with friends and family, doing the things I love most, such as cooking, gardening, skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me, my practice, and Naturopathic Medicine. I look forward to hearing from you and hope to work with you in the future.
Lauren Tessier, N.D.
