Dr. Safiya McCarter

My firm belief in the healing power of nature led me to pursue a career in the natural health sciences. Integrating my training as both a Naturopathic doctor and Acupuncturist allows me to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions using safe, evidence-informed natural therapies. As a clinician I have specialized knowledge and additional training in reproductive health (fertility, menstrual disorders, hormonal disorders). Additionally, I manage an array of health conditions including chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. With proper care and  guidance, these concerns can be addressed utilizing natural therapies such as botanical medicine (herbs both Western and Chinese), nutrition and supplementation. My clinical approach incorporates psychological and emotional health and forming a partnership with my patients. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward optimal health.

My work as a consultant stems from a fervent desire to see health disparities become a thing of the past and to see health equity become a reality. Every person deserves quality medical care that is culturally informed, culturally responsive and free from bias. I have dedicated the majority of my clinical career to this work, offering my consulting and training services related to medical education-curriculum design, development and implementation, accreditation standards and healthcare delivery. I have a particular interest and expertise in these areas within integrative medicine. Please visit my consulting page  for more information regarding how I can help you and your organization become more equitable, inclusive and diverse.
