Sophia Heath Institute has two New Residents!
Dr. Brooke Bodeen started working at SHI this past July.

Dr. Brooke Bodeen grew up on a farm in rural North Dakota. Excited to explore what the world had to offer, she spent her junior year of high school as a foreign exchange student in Austria. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Ecology and Environmental Sciences and a degree in German from the University of Maine. She then went on to work in environmental education. During that time, she discovered her passion for the environment grew to include a passion for human health. She then pursued Naturopathic Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she earned her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and a Certificate in Shiatsu in June 2012.

During the past year, Dr. Bodeen and her husband, a licensed massage therapist, combined their interest in meditation and medicine. For five months, they lived at Thrangu Monastery in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. There they served as volunteer clinicians at the monastery’s free integrative clinic. Mindfulness and compassion practices continue to inspire Dr. Bodeen’s work.

Dr. Bodeen has studied biotherapeutic drainage with Dr. Dickson Thom and completed his one year clinical mentorship focusing on the assessment and treatment of complex chronic disease. She has also studied cranial sacral therapy with Dr. Anne Hill. It is Dr. Bodeen’s goal to inspire, empower and motivate each patient on their healing journey. She is honored to be a part of the team at Sophia Health Institute as the new Resident for Dr. Klinghardt.

Dr. Allison Hofmann is joining SHI from Long Island, NY September 2013.

Dr. Allison Hofmann is a board certified Naturopathic Doctor.  A 2010 graduate of Bastyr University, Dr. Hofmann returns to Washington following a busy patient care experience on Long Island, NY.  Dr. Hofmann completed her undergraduate studies in Psychology and Neurobiology at Duke University.  A Craniosacral Therapy specialist and certified Colon Hydrotherapist, Dr. Hofmann has also completed coursework in Biotherapeutic Drainage, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy and Intravenous Therapies.  

Gathering insight from a variety of disciplines allows Dr. Hofmann to provide patients with tailored treatment plans and guidance.  A lifelong learner, Dr. Hofmann's greatest teachers have undoubtedly been her patients.  Mental health and the effects of chronic disease on mental-emotional health is a particular interest of Dr. Hofmann's.  The resilience, healing potential, and capabilities of the human body and spirit continue to inspire Dr. Hofmann.  Elated to join the team at Sophia Institute, Dr. Hofmann welcomes this new chapter of practice with gratitude.

Dr. Hofmann will be assisting Dr. Klinghardt at Sophia Health Institute as well as seeing patients at Bella Fiore Klinik in Seattle.
