A Pacific Northwest native, Dr. Anna Colombini is the owner of Peninsula Natural Health Center and practices primary care for the whole family with a focus on women’s health and allergies. She works with each patient to develop personalized treatment plans specific to their needs and goals.
Dr. Colombini believes strongly in empowerment through knowledge and uses this in her practice when working on lifestyle modifications. She understands that in today’s world, there are many demands on our mind, body and spirit. Helping others to ease into a healthier way of being and ultimately optimal health is one of her main goals as a physician. Out of this passion for health and wellness, she created PNHC’s wellness blog to support her patients in their individual path to optimal wellness. Dr. Colombini believes that respectful and compassionate listening, along with excellent healthcare and ample resources in support of lifestyle modifications provides for confidence and trust in the relationship between provider and patient.
As a primary care physician Dr. Colombini offers lifestyle counseling, herbal and nutritional supplementation, laboratory analysis, wellness exams for children, student athletes, women and men, and imaging and specialist referrals. When necessary, and in the best interest of her patients well-being, she will advise on and prescribe pharmaceutical medications.
Dr. Colombini graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. She went on to complete her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University in 2005. Bastyr continues to be one of the world’s leading academic centers for education, research and clinical service in the natural health arts and sciences. Upon graduating from Bastyr, she began practicing as a naturopathic resident at the former Peninsula Naturopathic Clinic where she continues to practice today.
Dr. Skedd enjoys seeing patients of all ages and conditions, with particular interests in mood disorders and digestive conditions. Dr. Skedd’s other areas of interest include hormone therapies (thyroid, adrenal, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy), functioning as a whole; this includes identifying food sensitivities, nutrients an individual may be lacking, and helping educate each patient to be more in tune with their body and take charge of their health.
Dr. Skedd grew up in Nevada, where naturopathic medicine is not yet widely available, and as a result, was not aware that naturopathic medicine existed as a profession when she began her pre-medical studies at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Dr. Skedd realized her increasing passion for nutrition and alternative medicine were not congruent with the prevailing model of conventional medicine, which led to her pursue a different course. Months before graduating with her degree in business marketing from UNLV, Dr. Skedd attended a talk given by a local ND and instantly knew naturopathic medicine was the type of health care she had envisioned herself practicing. After earning her bachelor’s degree, Dr. Skedd moved to Seattle to attend Bastyr University and earned her doctorate of naturopathic medicine in 2011. She completed a two year residency at a busy naturopathic clinic and has been in practice since.
Dr. Goyette is a New Hampshire native and completed a 2-year residency at Peninsula Natural Health Center. She has an undergraduate degree at the University of New Hampshire in Neuroscience and Behavior prior to completing her Naturopathic Doctorate at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. She is passionate about finding the root cause of her patients symptoms and tailoring therapies to their needs. Her areas of interest include digestive issues, women’s health, skin disorders, hormone balancing, nutrition, and autoimmune conditions. She also has a special interest in treating Lyme disease and chronic Epstein Barr virus. When she is not working, she enjoys baking and spending time with her family in nature.
Dr. Yang is a resident physician at Peninsula Natural Health Center. She was born and raised in Taiwan where her passion for Naturopathic Medicine grew as she observed her elders practice “yang sheng” in Mandarin meaning “to maintain good health and conserve one’s vital powers” through nourishing the mind, body, and spirit. Dr. Yang completed a 2-year internship in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China and moved to the United States in 2015 to obtain her Bachelor of Science in Integrative Human Biology and Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University in 2022.
Dr. Yang immersed herself in the study of holistic medicine rooted in Eastern and Western clinical philosophies. She offers a personalized and unique therapeutic approach to optimizing wellness. Dr. Yang deeply understands the importance of respecting the body’s healing wisdom and listens compassionately to her patient’s health history to uncover the root cause. She utilizes various modalities such as lifestyle counseling, clinical nutrition, functional medicine labs, and nutraceutical/pharmaceutical interventions tailored to each individual’s health goals. Her clinical interests include mental and behavioral health, gastrointestinal concerns, endocrine disorders, and cardio-metabolic conditions. Outside of work, you can find her cooking and exploring new food scenes, listening to indie music, hiking, and traveling.
