Gillian Ehrlich, DNP, ARNP
Gillian’s objective is to serve as an agent of community development and social change through the collaborative provision of thoughtful, person-centered integrative medicine in a local, accessible format. She is thrilled to be part of a movement to make holistic health (able body and clear mind) our common ground in medicine and believes that we do our best healing by starting in whichever shoes we currently stand. As a nurse practitioner she works to listen deeply and act efficiently and is comfortable discussing simple or complex disease processes as well as making dietary and/or lifestyle change recommendations. Our health can be our most valuable asset and a determinant of our liberation. We rise and/or fall together; she is here in service to achieve better health for all of us.
What she does: Grassroots healthcare offered on a human scale. Seattle Healthcare Mavens (SHM) is a private medical practice to directly serve our most local communities. Clients are welcome to bring any concern from sinus congestion to lupus, and pay through insurance, cash, or trade. Sliding scale is also available. In this independent venue, we can let “healthcare” range from strictly medical, to mental to emotional and spiritual, and be what it truly is: a way for us to nurture our own liberation. She also offers Panchakarma, and Ayurvedic detoxification to address chronic disease.
