Emily Hudson holds a Doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine and a Master's in Counseling Psychology from Bastyr University School of Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle, Washington. She moved to St. Louis from Seattle in December 2017 and is starting her practice in the Central West End. She has three years of in experience working with patients at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health where she practiced herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutritional counseling, and hydrotherapy under a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. She is also a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington.
As a healing practitioner, Dr. Hudson has been trained to identify obstacles that can impede a person from a healthy physical existence and can show you how to harness your body's innate ability to heal. She understands that each person is unique and has their own story to share. Your story will be heard and used to guide you through a unique individualized healing journey. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you start down your path to wellness.
Dr. Hudson sees clients of all ages. She relies heavily on the traditional Naturopathic Principles to guide her recommendations. As a client, you can expect her to spend a lot of time getting to know you and your health goals (about 90 minutes for the first visit).
Though 20 U.S. States recognize the licensure of Naturopathic Doctors to practice alongside the conventional medical physician, Missouri is not one of them. Dr. Hudson holds her license in the State of Washington. For this reason, she strongly encourages you to maintain an active relationship with your primary care physician which will help facilitate the work that she and you will do together. It is through the integration of traditional and conventional medical models that you can be cared for best.
