I believe in the power of LOVE to heal the body, mind and spirit. 


I believe that illness and loss can be powerful opportunities for growth and transformation. 


I believe that every patient deserves to be treated with compassion and individualized care.


If you are seeking a whole-person approach to your physical, emotional and spiritual health then you've come to the right place.


I work with patients by telephone or Skype as a consultant and guide for the healing journey. You can learn more about working with me here


I wish you peace and many blessings!

Dr. Karen Wyatt is a family physician who has spent her 25 year medical career working with patients in challenging settings, such as hospices, nursing homes and indigent clinics. She has founded a free medical clinic in a homeless shelter, accompanied three medical mission teams to Honduras, and led a non-profit clinic for the uninsured in its growth from a 4-hour per week all-volunteer operation to a full-time, full-service medical center. 


Motivated by her compassionate heart she has put her spiritual beliefs into action by being of service to others in need and by developing Creative Healing LLC an initiative to integrate spirituality into traditional medical practice.  She has twice testified at Senate briefings on the cutting edge model of integrated medical care, combining physical and behavioral health, which she helped create and implement in her clinic for the uninsured.


In addition to her devotion for helping others, Dr. Wyatt has had a passion for writing since she was a child. During medical school she helped organize a group of students into "The Not Ready for Exam-Time Players" who wrote and performed skits and song parodies to entertain the school’s entire medical community.


Applying her writing skills to medical topics, Dr. Wyatt has written the book What Really Matters: 7 Lessons for Living from the Stories of the Dying, which details her experiences as a hospice physician. She also wrote a chapter entitled “An Integral Approach to the End of Life” for the book Consciousness & Healing: Integral Approaches to Mind-Body Medicine, edited by Marilyn Schlitz and Tina Amorok (Elsevier, 2005).  In addition Dr. Wyatt wrote and self-published the book A Matter of Life and Death: Stories to Heal Loss & Grief and the ebooks Loss and Grief Survival Guide and Coping With Life-Threatening Illness.  She has done numerous lectures for hospices and other groups on end-of-life issues and presented a workshop for the 800 members of the American Holistic Medical Association on death and dying.


Dr. Wyatt received the Spirit of the American Woman Award in1996, was named one of Utah’s 100 Notable Women in that same year, and in 2005 was a recipient of the Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award for Summit County, Colorado.
