I am Brittany Breitenbach (she/her/hers). At Aralia Health, you'll primarily see me working in my role as a Medical Assistant. I am also a clinical herbalist and current student at Missoula College finishing up my Associate of Arts and Certificate in Chemical Addiction Studies to become a Licensed Addiction Counselor. I have wanted to help people for as long as I can remember and have a passion for medicine, particularly medicine making and formulating. What started out in the pharmaceutical realm as a pharmacy technician, later led to natural medicine as an herbalist. With the belief that every person should have access to the healthcare they need, I feel at home with Aralia Health where inclusivity is a staple principle.
With the growth of my education, I desire to be a part of something that combines holistic healthcare with the dire need of mental health and addiction counseling. I am a firm believer that you must treat the root cause to get to the bottom of an issue and to take the whole biopsychosocial person into account.
As a team member of Aralia Health, I aspire to contribute my passion, knowledge, empathy, and desire for healthful living to this fantastic, growing clinic.
