I’m Dr. Leslie Korn. I’m a Harvard Medical School-trained traumatologist who specializes in using nutritional and herbal medicine for mental health and optimal brain function for people of all ages. I combine the science of holistic medicine with the art of compassionate, personalized care.
Many people call me their health activist.
If you’re asking “what does that mean?” I totally understand. You might not know someone like me exists. Essentially, I work with clinicians who want to grow their practice beyond conventional mental health treatment to learn how to do truly integrative work, and with people who have been to every doctor and healer on the planet, yet still don’t feel great emotionally or physically.
I show my patients and course participants how to incorporate more natural approaches to achieving vibrant health, and how to eliminate or decrease pharmaceuticals by introducing nutritional therapies, herbal medicine, supplements, scientific detoxification, somatics, yoga, and cutting edge therapies into do-able daily routines to reach optimal health and happiness.
I am known for cracking the tough cases – the people who have tried “everything” with no real lasting success. Both individuals and other professionals come to me for my expertise in understanding the mind-body connection.
Meet Dr. Korn
I received my education at Harvard Medical School and my training in the jungles of Mexico. I am an expert in natural approaches to mental and physical health and the influences of cultural rituals, foods, and traditions as they relate to well-being.
I have divided my 40 year career running a natural medicine center serving in indigenous Mexico and people who attended retreats there from around the world, as well as treating clients and educating clinicians in Boston, Olympia, and via distance consultation.
My experiences in Mexico, as well as urban, have made me a believer in treating the whole person – both mind and body.

Consulting & Coaching
I consider the WHOLE PERSON when diagnosing and creating a treatment plan. And I use a scientific approach and proven protocol to medical and mental health challenges. I put all the pieces together.
Have you experienced an increase in clients seeking natural remedies for their health issues? Or, are you currently working with a client who doesn’t seem to be improving, no matter what medicines or therapies she is receiving? Have you heard the terms “integrative” or “mind body” medicine and wondered what it was about?
For more than 40 years, the preservation of native peoples and methods has been close to my heart. I started the Center for Traditional Medicine to advocate for and support indigenous people’s health and healing traditions around the globe.
