Dr. Kaltunas believes that in order to fully address the root cause of pain and illness, several levels of health must be addressed, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Disease often has deeper roots in trauma and belief patterns that do not serve us. Dr. Kaltunas aims to provide you with a safe environment to uncover these deeper roots, and assist you in building a strong and fertile foundation in which you can transform your health and flourish. Her passion for climbing, mountaineering, dance, meditation, and yoga keep her in tune with the rhythms and vibrations of nature so that she can be clear and focused to provide you with the best possible care. Dr. Kaltunas looks forward to joining you as a partner along your healthcare journey!

My philosophy of care is centered on a commitment to finding a path forward through pain and distress by harnessing your own inner wisdom. We will work together to build health by stabilizing acute concerns while uncovering and healing the underlying causes behind your distress. My approach to care strongly emphasizes the foundations of health: environment, healthy diet, physical activity, sleep habits, community and fellowship, spiritual connection, and meaning. My specialties include a focus on stress, trauma, sleep, and relationships, addressing these areas from a perspective of value-centered living.

I enjoy going on local adventures to explore area festivals and parks, as well as handicrafts at home. I am passionate about developing community, volunteering with my spiritual groups, and helping create a better world through every interaction throughout my day: with my family, friends, patients, colleagues, and strangers.
