Kate Tenney, N.D.

Dr. Kate Tenney is a board certified and licensed Naturopathic Doctor who treats a broad range of acute and chronic conditions seen in family practice. While she treats people of all ages with a wide range of health concerns, she specializes in integrative health for men, women, and naturopathic gynecology. She also enjoys working with families, helping parents and children find natural ways to be healthy.

“As a Naturopathic doctor and a mother, I am passionate about the inherent healing power of the human body and of nature. I believe that when obstacles to healing are removed, the body can move towards balance, and from that place, optimal health can be achieved. I believe that disease and dysfunction are the body’s attempt to restore internal balance and adapt to suboptimal conditions. My approach to helping patients regain this balance and attain their health goals focuses on treating the whole person as a unique individual, not a collection of symptoms.”

Dr. Tenney’s practice is built on many of the same philosophies and methodologies as Dr. McDougalls and because of this, Dr. McDougall has decided to co-manage patients with Dr. Tenney. They hold weekly meetings to discuss cases and treatment plans. This team has proven to be extremely successful in treating a wide variety of diagnosis. CLEAR Center is built on the interdisciplinary treatment model and uses all expertise possible to create efficient and effective treatment protocols.

Dr. Tenney earned her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, from the oldest fully accredited Naturopathic medical school, National College of Natural Medicine, in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Tenney was the resident ND under women’s health expert, Dr. Kimberly Windstar, ND at the NCNM Clinic for two years, where her focus was naturopathic gynecology, preventive medicine, and endocrine disorders. Dr. Tenney was in private practice in SW Portland until 2010 when she moved with her family back to her home state, California.
