Diana Quinn inlak'ech, ND
Dr. Diana Quinn Inlak'ech (she/her/hers) is a Board-certified Naturopathic Doctor specializing in endocrinology, integrative mental health, and mind/body medicine. She is a graduate of the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon and has been in practice since 2006.
The nature of her work is holistic and vitalistic, rooted in the healing power of nature. Diana’s foundational training is in evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine. She has fused this with traditional healing modalities and mind/body medicine for a science-meets-spirituality approach. She passionately believes in individual and collective capacity for healing and sees her role as that of facilitator/midwife to support the self-healing of her clients.
In her consultative practice, Diana compassionately holds a space of empowerment through information, resources, and offering a wide range of natural medicine modalities. She co-creates a therapeutic plan with clients which may include: food as medicine, plant allies and botanical medicine, traditional/intuitive healing and the use of ceremony and ritual, homeopathy and flower essences, somatic bodywork, mind/body techniques, and nature-based therapy.
Her practice is trauma-informed with a anti-oppression healing justice lens, grounded in intersectional feminism. She seeks to provide safe space to those who have felt alienated within conventional medicine spaces including the LGBTQIA+ community, people of color, trauma survivors, differently abled folks, and people of size (as a HAES advocate). She is a member of HealingbyChoice!, a community of women of color healing practitioners who offer a range of healing modalities for self-care and the reduction of racial harm in mind, body, spirit, and institution.
Dr. Quinn currently sees patients Integrative Empowerment Group, an interdisciplinary practice with a shared vision of affirming diversity, empowering individual expression and promoting integrative mental, emotional, and personal growth.. Her clinical experience includes four years at the Integrative Medicine department at Beaumont Hospital where she focused on integrative oncology, women’s health and cardio-metabolic disease. She has also previously provided services at Integrative Healthcare Providers, Michigan Associates of Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine, and Shalva Psychiatry.
Committed to increasing access to naturopathic medicine, Dr. Quinn served as President of the Michigan Association of Naturopathic Physicians (MANP) from 2007 to 2011, and as Legislative Chair until 2012. She was a founding member of the Ann Arbor Holistic Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and serves on the Board of Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange. Dr. Quinn maintains a naturopathic license in the state of Vermont. Due to the lack of licensing naturopathic medicine in the state of Michigan, she is unable to provide primary care or accept insurance, but she offers a sliding scale in effort to increase access to holistic medicine for those who seek it.
An avid environmentalist, she loves spending time in nature. Her pastimes include knitting, reading, smashing the patriarchy, and cooking delicious meals for her family. She lives with her wife and their four daughters in Southeast Michigan.
