Petra Caruso


Dr. Petra Caruso, licensed naturopathic physician, is dedicated to helping patients discover the underlying cause of their symptoms and helping them to remove the obstacles to cure. This allows the body to regain balance, necessary for deep healing to occur. She has a deep, core belief that health is achievable for all of us and with the proper guidance and support everyone can live in balance and enjoy the many benefits of better health and energy.

Dr. Caruso is a 2006 graduate of National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and a Portland native. She opened Woodstock Natural Health Clinic in 2007 and soon built a thriving and busy practice. She sold the primary care practice to two physicians in 2015 and took a 7-month sabbatical during which time she completed a certificate in Trauma-Informed Services through Portland State University’s Graduate School of Counseling. Her practice focuses on providing a safe space for patients to release coping mechanisms that no longer serve them while adopting enduring, healthy new belief systems and habits.

Dr. Caruso currently lives in the vibrant Alphabet District in NW PDX. In her spare time Dr. Caruso enjoys dance and yoga classes, meditation and spiritual pursuits, travel, reading and writing. She prioritizes spending time in the healing power of Nature with her cattle dog Stella, a graduate of the Oregon Humane Society’s Pet Therapy Program.
