LGBTQ2IA+ Health in Private Practice
To celebrate this year’s Pride Month, we’d like to showcase one of the many NDs working in collaboration with the LGBTQ2IA+ community.
Dr. Sam Clouthier, ND co-owns an integrative health clinic in Fort McMurray, AB., where she focuses on mental health, addiction, and LGBTQ2IA+ health in private practice. She also sits on the board of directors for Pride YMM.
“I am proud to be a naturopathic doctor because it allows me to provide care to LGBTQ2IA+ individuals in my community who previously lacked inclusive and supportive integrative care. The framework of naturopathic medicine allows me to give my patients a variety of treatment options that align with their health goals and budget – from lifestyle counseling to acupuncture to supplements and herbs.
Working in this field also allows me to be a health advocate for my patients and help them get the services and support that they deserve. Most of all, I am honored to be able to act as a role model for other LGBTQ2IA+ individuals in the fields of science and medicine – representation is so important to me!”
