Current Roles

Dr. Guiltinan is dean of the School of Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University and a clinical supervisor at Bastyr Center for Natural Health.

Dr. Guiltinan is currently a member of the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine Advisory Council. She was appointed to that role in 2012 by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

She also is president of the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges (AANMC).

Clinical Interests

Dr. Guiltinan has a special interest in women’s health and has contributed to several conferences, publications, and research regarding women’s health and other issues. Her roles in this area have included: consultant on a trial on alternative therapies for menopause with Group Health Cooperative; consultant to the University of Washington School of Medicine on the introduction of CAM curriculum; peer reviewer for the American Journal of Public Health, Alternative Medicine Review, and Journal of Naturopathic Medicine; and author of “Naturopathic Management of Fibrocystic Breast Disease” for the Journal of Natural Medicine.

Healing Philosophy

In describing her personal healing philosophy, Dr. Guiltinan says, "I believe that every individual has inherent healing capacities. My role as a naturopathic physician is to help people understand what is wrong with them, and teach them how to access and use their internal healing capacities, as well as the many healing agents in their environment in order to restore and maintain health and wellness. I believe some of the most powerful healing agents include air, light, water, food, touch, love and laughter."

Past Experience

Dr. Guiltinan served as dean of clinical affairs and clinical medical director at Bastyr Center. She has been in private practice since 1986 and has been a faculty member of Bastyr University since 1984.

In 1995, AANP honored Dr. Guiltinan with the Physician of the Year award.
