Education and Affiliations

Prior to practicing at BCNH, Dr. Brenna completed a competitive residency at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health where she practiced Primary Care and supervised medical students in the clinical setting. She then spent almost two years in private practice at Seattle Nature Cure Clinic before returning to BCNH. Before her life in medicine, Dr. Brenna was a social worker and community activist in King County working with Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence for over 5 years. She has spent significant time abroad in Europe and South America, living and working alongside the poorest of the poor in Ecuador. It was here she fell in love with medicine and developed the firm belief that high-quality, integrative medicine is a human right. In the years since she has been involved with local efforts and organizations with this same mission. In her free time she enjoys playing guitar, running, hiking and gardening. She is fluent in Spanish and accepts Spanish-speaking patients.

Teaching/Healing Philosophy

“I focus on foundations of health and work with my patients to understand the cause of dysfunction and the path toward optimal wellness. Using nutrition, botanical medicine, nutrient supplementation, counseling, physical medicine, and pharmaceutical therapies, I help my patients rediscover their body’s innate healing ability. I view the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership that should empower patients toward a greater sense of well-being and restoration of balance. Because of this, I make sure to take time to teach my patients about their health and treatment options to develop treatment plans that are truly tailored to each individual.”
