Dr. Vivian Sovran is a Naturopathic Physician, and a Licensed Primary Care Provider in Washington state. She received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 2007. After graduation she completed a two-year residency with Dr. Candace Aasan at Cascade Natural Medicine, during which she gained invaluable experience, mentorship, and knowledge in the fields of naturopathic pediatric and women’s health care. While at Bastyr, Dr. Sovran also trained extensively in Midwifery care. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree, specializing in Human Physiology, from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and speaks conversational French and Italian.
In her practice, Dr. Sovran strives to provide a compassionate, professional and welcoming environment. She takes the time to really listen to her patients. She particularly values the naturopathic principle of Docere (doctor as teacher), and is pleased to find that she often learns just as much from her patients as they learn from her. She makes it a priority to serve as an advocate for her patients and their families, and takes a sensible, flexible and creative approach to treatment, with the belief that each small, lasting step towards an improved state of being should be celebrated as a valuable achievement. Dr. Sovran’s goal is to help her patients achieve optimal health for themselves and their families through general lifestyle education and counseling, encouragement, and
naturopathic therapies, while implementing her utmost concern for each individual and our environment. She also recognizes that certain conditions require conventional medical workup and treatment, and incorporates an integrative approach whenever necessary.
Dr. Sovran particularly enjoys working with infants, children, adolescents, and their families. She considers it a privilege to have the opportunity to promote optimal health to her pediatric patients, starting via their mothers before conception and birth, and continuing through their first days of life and beyond.
Dr. Sovran is accepting new patients and is available at Naturopathic Family Medicine on Monday and Thursday mornings, and Thursday afternoons.
