Mikaela Arredondo | ND
Hello! I am a board certified Naturopathic Doctor and I graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), the oldest accredited naturopathic medical university in North America and one of the most respected in the world. In addition to my doctorate degree, I spent three years studying Integrative Mental Health with techniques focusing on the mind-body connection and I love to incorporate those techniques into my practice.
My heritage is Mexican-American and my last name can be difficult to pronounce so please feel free to call me Dr. A. I am proud to bring culture to the medical field and I love to work with people of all genders, cultures, and backgrounds. I often find that these foundational roots are important factors in the healing process and exploring them with compassion in a safe space can be extremely therapeutic.
I am professionally certified in Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage and Integrative Pelvic Therapy. Both modalities use specific techniques to address a wide range of complaints including gut function and physical pain. Please feel free to give me a call or visit my website to learn more!
Because each person is unique, I tailor my treatment plans to the needs of each individual person using lifestyle coaching, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, laboratory testing, bodywork/massage, and flower essences. My goal as a practitioner is to aide you in finding optimal balance and wellness in mind, body, and spirit. I want to help you discover your innate strength and resilience so you can feel vibrant again. The body knows how to heal, it just needs the chance to do so by removing the obstacles in its way. Whether through my care or the outside resources I can connect you with, I would be honored to work with you through your healing journey.
I am originally from Bryan, Texas. In my free time I enjoy reading a good sci-fi or fantasy book, hiking through the woods, trail running, playing soccer, cheering on the women's national soccer team, playing board games, and spending time with my family and friends.

Leigh Siergiewicz | ND
I became a naturopathic doctor to give patients what they really want and don’t get from conventional care. Appointments with me take all the time needed, symptoms are taken seriously, and a lot of digging and testing is done to find real solutions for things that other healthcare practitioners often brush off. Having experienced the frustration with rushed appointments and lack of real solutions offered by conventional healthcare myself, I wanted a different approach.
The first time I saw a naturopathic doctor as a patient many years ago, I was amazed that my doctor took so much time, asked lots of detailed questions, and gave me a list of things that would be our next steps in finding a solution to my symptoms. I wanted to provide the same kind of comfort and assurance for my patients, and a few years later I started attending school at Bastyr University where I earned my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine after completing a Bachelor of Arts at Saint Anselm College.
I work primarily with women and families on issues such as fertility, menstrual disorders, menopause, thyroid, autoimmune disease, and digestive complaints. My approach is very middle of the road, blending conventional treatment and testing as needed with natural modalities according to patient preference. My ultimate goal is that you are no longer in need of my care because you are taking such good care of yourself!
I work with people in my office in Portland as well as virtually anywhere in Maine and New Hampshire.
