dr. Emily Anne McDonald, MD
Hello! I'm the founder and co-director of Chrysalis Holistic Healing. I am a graduate of SUNY Downstate College of Medicine and Swarthmore College. I have published in peer-reviewed journals, presented at academic conferences, co-managed a non-profit medical clinic for individuals without health insurance, organized large scale interdisciplinary events, delivered more than 100 newborns, cared for thousands of patients through the hospital system, and most recently, opened Chrysalis - a space to integrate my many passions in service of all beings.
I blend my traditional medical training with herbalism, astrology, and energy medicine. I commonly work with energy through the psyche, the subtle body, and the physical body. My services are geared towards developing skills and tools for reprogramming energetic patterns. We explore all aspects of wholeness to create a sustainable plan for accepting and overcoming challenges and limitations. I’m particularly interested in helping people chronic conditions or new diagnoses to organize holistic health and healing plans. With my extensive background in science and evidence-based medicine, I can help you research diagnoses, medications, surgeries, hospitals, physicians, clinical trials, in order to integrate these practices with supportive holistic practices.
