Tiffany Althaus, ND
Dr. Althaus received her doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. Prior to her medical education, she completed an undergraduate degree in biomedical sciences at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. After completing her undergraduate work, she spent six years conducting clinical research, managing both national and international investigational clinical trials for Medtronic and Roche. Although she was interested in the advancement of medical devices and new therapies, she was drawn to her patients’ individual stories and the unique set of factors (social, physical, environmental, spiritual, nutritional, genetic, and psychological/emotional) that influence the manifestation of their symptoms and disease. Dr. Althaus understands that the factors that influence disease do not operate in isolation but are interrelated. Thus, she became increasingly interested in educating and empowering patients to make long-term and sustainable lifestyle changes to restore health. This ultimately led her to pursue a degree as a naturopathic physician.
Dr. Althaus is an advocate for her patients’ health and addresses the root cause of disease while managing symptoms along the way. She practices evidence-based medicine with an integrative, collaborative, and personalized approach, blending conventional medicine diagnostics with natural medicine philosophies and modalities.
Dr. Althaus is licensed as a naturopathic physician in Washington and is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians. She completed an accredited residency at Cascade Integrative Medicine in family medicine.
Dr. Althaus loves the outdoors and relishes any time she can spend in her breathtaking PNW backyard long-distance running, biking, hiking, and rock climbing.
