Assistant Professor
  • Focus: Hydrotherapy

Dr. Gaia Mather is a native of Portland, and graduated from NCNM (now NUNM) in 1990. Holistic medicine encompasses a philosophy that is of special importance to her — that all life is sacred and all life is connected. She enjoys treating her ‘animal family,’ which consists of one small Boston terrier and three cats, with naturopathic remedies to keep them healthy and happy. Dr. Mather is a long-time member of a local women spiritual circle, and she knows the magic that happens as women gather to share their gifts and wisdom.
