As a cancer survivor herself, Dr. Jarvela fully understands the frustrations that patients often experience with conventional medicine. She was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 13. With the support of her incredible family and a handful of excellent physicians, she had a full recovery and has pursued her life’s passion to become a doctor.
“I wanted to know not only how to treat a patient with pharmaceutical drugs, but how to use herbs, homeopathy, vitamins & minerals, diet and stress management to optimize each patient’s health.” This led her to Naturopathic Medical school, where she could “learn it all”.
Dr. Jarvela truly has a holistic, integrative practice where she recognizes that each person is unique and deserves the time to tell their “health story” and develop a treatment plan that will work with their individual lifestyle.
John Reynolds, ND
Dr. Reynolds was introduced to holistic medicine at an early age growing up in the Florida Keys. His mother was one of the first licensed lay midwives in the state of Florida. His interest in human relations led him to study Psychology at the University of Florida where he graduated with a bachelors of science degree in 1995. He later did post graduate work in both Sports and Social Psychology.
Dr. Reynolds spent his 10 years after graduation traveling and working though out the US, but fell in love with the Northwest after spending two years in Seattle. There he worked as a Counselor for a local community health clinic. He later began working with families when he was hired as a Program Manager for a non-profit children’s organization. When the opportunity arose he moved back to the Northwest and completed his medical training at the National College of Natural Medicine .
Dr. Reynolds continues to be amazed by the effectiveness of natural healing and herbal medicine. He has advanced training in manual therapy and physical medicine. He enjoys practicing all aspects of primary care/general medicine but he has a special interest in Men’s Health and Pain Management. Dr. Reynolds continues to enjoy the outdoors and is an avid photographer.
