Dr. Molly Ellis, ND
My clinical practice primarily involves women’s health with a focus on healing the relationship with our bodies. My areas of expertise involve PCOS, endometriosis, prenatal and postpartum care, hormonal imbalances, and sexual health. I am a certified pelvic health specialist providing both pelvic floor therapy and abdominal visceral work alongside cranialsacral therapy. I believe bodies often have a different story to tell than the mind and holding space for bodies to speak is the artwork of my clinical practice.
I graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine with a doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine. I also studied with the Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine and practice herbal medicine with the majority of my patient population. I continue to mentor with women’s health expert, Dr. Kathryn Kloos, and I have completed several trainings specific to pelvic health and cranialsacral techniques.
I weave together botanical medicine, hands on healing, and empathetic listening to support you holistically. I approach my practice from a trauma informed and social justice informed care model to provide shame and bias free health care for bodies of every size.
My special interests and medical expertise include:
- Painful or irregular menses
- Acne + skin wellness
- Pelvic pain
- Abdominal adhesions
- Fertility, prenatal, and postpartum care
- Sexual health + wellness
- Anxiety + depression
- Gastrointestinal disorders
