Tonya Wren, MD
Tonya Wren, MD, is a Board-Certified Family Medicine Physician and a Grand Junction native. Her experiences in medicine so far have taught her that spending adequate time with patients is the only way to really take good medical care of people – and the only way to help prevent physician burnout. Since the current system does not value physician time, she is very happy to be joining the Trailhead model. Frustration with the limits of modern western medicine has also driven her to pursue training in other established medical traditions to enhance her ability to truly heal patients. She has over 300 hours of training in acupuncture and 300 hours of training in Chinese herbal medicine. She has completed training in the HeartMath method of stress management and emotional regulation and has completed Health Coach training as well. Se habla español.
In her spare time, she enjoys ballroom dance, belly dance, horseback riding, knitting, and gardening. She has also recently discovered the joys of watching her children leave her behind on the ski slopes.
