Contact: Joshua Phillips
With a fascination for the journey between illness and health, and an appreciation for the incredible capacity our bodies have to heal, Dr. Phillips has been offering holistic primary care to children and families for over a decade. He received his Naturopathic medical training at National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, OR, completing the doctoral program in 2003. Dr Phillips’ practice offers a holistic and compassionate approach to family medicine, adult and pediatric care, integrating the most useful tools of western medicine with the wisdom and depth of Naturopathic medicine.
Before completing undergraduate studies at Portland State University, and then attending Naturopathic medical school, Dr. Phillips worked as an EMT on a wildland fire crew, which was an introduction to his interest in medicine. He is an avid skier and snowboarder, enjoys mountain biking and soccer, and delights in the beauty of central Oregon with his wife and two kids. He has a passion for travel and adventure and enjoys spending time aboard his sailboat in the summer months.
Dr Phillips has been a musician most of his life, which in many ways has also informed his work as a physician. His belief that music and arts in general are an integral part of health and wellness is manifest in the mission of Hawthorn Healing Arts Center. The center holds the vision to bring the worlds of art, music and creativity and primary care medicine under the same roof.
Dr. Phillips is the medical and creative director of Hawthorn Healing Arts Center, and is actively developing and facilitating educational and inspirational programs for local community members and businesses.
