a soft place
to do hard things
Hi there, I’m Dr. Laura Gouge.
(Gouge rhymes with rouge.) I am a licensed naturopathic physician, and expert in integrative mental health and chronic illness. I specialize in working with people in pain.
Physical, emotional, and mental health is a journey. My belief is that truly anyone can develop the skills and courage to walk through the fire of painful life experiences and emerge more fully themselves. Our health is a work in progress that we create everyday, through our habits and lifestyle, not something that is found in a magic pill box.

Stories of Success
“When I met Laura, I had been living with IBS for 30 years. My life was so limited. I could only eat about 10 foods, I was anxious to leave my house, and I couldn’t eat away from home. After just six months of simple dietary changes and several specific supplements, I am symptom free for the first time in my life. I can eat at my daughter’s house, enjoy my favorite foods, and don’t have to suffer with constipation or diarrhea anymore.—J, 62 years old
