One Sky Family Medicine
Dr. McDaniel's passion is providing naturopathic primary care for women and children. Having practiced midwifery for over 10 years, she has a special love of caring for newborns and their moms, and providing support to the whole family during the postpartum period. She loves working with women in the areas of fertility and preconception care, contraception, anxiety and depression, food allergy and intolerance and menopause. She's passionate about preventive care and believes that not only is prevention important, but that it can also be fun! Naturopathic diet and lifestyle recommendations weave their way into almost every visit, and medications and procedures are used when they are the needed for more significant problems. Visits for newborns and babies are geared toward monitoring and celebrating growth and development and providing breastfeeding support. Helping parents learn to be confident caregivers for their kids at home when they are sick is one of her joys, and she offers same day appointments for kids when they need office care. She offers an individualized approach to planning and administering vaccinations, and is happy to work with families who chose not to vaccinate according to the routine schedule.
After graduating the Naturopathic Medicine program at Bastyr University in 2002, she received additional Certification in Naturopathic Midwifery in 2003. She completed advanced training in breastfeeding support through Evergreen Hospital’s Lactation program.
Dr. McDaniel founded Seattle Natural Family Medicine in 2002 and was in private practice there until she joined the One Sky family in 2008. She now owns and runs the practice with her business partner Molly Gray, ND. She practiced midwifery, attending families birthing at home and in free-standing birth centers, until 2014. She taught at both Bastyr University and the former Seattle Midwifery School, and is now One Sky Family Medicine's Residency Program Director. She has served on the Boards of Directors for both the Midwives Association of Washington State and the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and now is thrilled to serve on the Board of Directors of the Sacred Earth Foundation, which encompases both the Ekone community and summer camp for kids, as well as the White Eagle Memorial Preserve in Goldendale, WA
Dr. McDaniel lives in the neighborhood with her family. When not at the clinic, Dr. McDaniel is often found horseback riding, gardening, reading or wandering in the Ravenna Ravine.
