Dr. Hunter Peterson, N.D.
Physician of Naturopathic Medicine
Dr. Peterson is a board-certified Naturopathic Doctor, graduating with honors from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. A native of Spokane, WA, he received his undergraduate training at Pomona College in Claremont, CA, where he studied history and biology. His shared passion for medicine and history led him into the role of co-lead author in a history chapter of the forthcoming textbook, Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine.
Dr. Peterson embraces a view of health in which all aspects of a person are inextricably linked in a dynamic relationship. This model is echoed throughout the natural world and is what has drawn him to natural medicine. With this guiding philosophy, Dr. Peterson's treatments acknowledge the dynamic interplay between one's physical, biochemical, mental/emotional and spiritual state of being in addressing the underlying causes of disease, leading to meaningful and lasting resolution.
As a clinician, Dr. Peterson is an attentive listener who seeks to understand each person's unique experiences and health story in helping him know his patients on a deep level. He believes his main duty as doctor is to be a teacher, providing his patients with the insights and tools they need to establish well-being.
To have the honor of working with someone to improve their health and the way they experience life is a privilege that Dr. Peterson is truly grateful for.
The staff of Coeur d’Alene Healing Arts are committed to the health and well-being of each patient, understanding individual needs and exceeding expectations. Even though each of our highly skilled staff members has a specific area of expertise, each is dedicated to assisting our patients in every aspect of their office experience.
Amanda moved to the Coeur d’Alene area from Kansas City in 2016. Before her move, she spent 15 years working with survivors of domestic violence and other forms of trauma. Through that work, Amanda learned the value of being present with people through their process of change and the importance of simply bearing witness to another person’s story.
Amanda grew up in the Chicago area and had the benefit of utilizing homeopathic remedies as well as other natural healing methods in her home as a child. As an adult, having been exposed to daily trauma through her work, Amanda began experiencing the effects of toxic stress and vicarious trauma. As the work began to take a physical and emotional toll on her, Amanda turned to natural medicine and a holistic approach to healing and has become a passionate advocate for treating the whole person as a means to achieving the wellness goals of each individual.
Odette was born in Coeur d’Alene and grew up exploring the beauty of this area. She graduated from Lewis and Clark State College in 2007 with a bachelors of Science in Kinesiology. She then went to work at Gritman Medical Center and became the Clinical Coordinator for their Wellness Center, teaching classes and managing a large facility with a staff of 6 employees and serving hundreds of community members, during her 10 years at Center.
While visiting family in Post Falls she realized that it was time to come back to live and help her mother remain in her own home. While looking for employment it was important to find meaningful work that would make a positive difference in the lives of others. Odette attended one of Dr. Hunter’s Open Forums and was happy to see his approach to educate through an open, inclusive dialogue with others. Odette is honored to be a member of the Coeur d’Alene Healing Arts Clinic, and helping patients on their personal journey to living their healthiest lives.
In her spare time Odette enjoys hiking, cooking, music, theatre, dancing, reading, and soaking in natural hot springs.
Growing up close to nature, Korrine learned to appreciate the wholeness of health from a young age. Her early childhood exploration of nature, dewy morning walks through the sagebrush that lined the canyon creek by her home, and healthy lifestyle grounded in nature fastened her to a well-being that she values to this day.
Korrine stepped onto her path at CDA Healing Arts eight years ago under the guidance of recently-retired Dr. Todd Schlapfer. Her tenure at the clinic has been a journey of learning, service, and helping people connect to themselves and their well-being. While the changing leadership under Dr. Hunter marks fresh momentum at the clinic, Korrine brings experience and familiarity of the previous chapter.
Outside the office, Korrine demonstrates dedicated involvement in building community grow spaces and connecting people to the origins of their food. She founded the Community Roots program many years ago under the Kootenai Environmental Alliance. Recently, Korrine embarked on another journey, motherhood. She and her husband Jacob are savoring this new chapter in life with their daughter, Siler, and all the lessons she has to teach them. They are enjoying exploring the world at Siler’s pace, and are amazed at the wonder a tiny person has in the smallest of things.
