Hi, I’m Dr. Liz Walker

Dr. Daniel Deakins, NMD

Naturopathic Medical Physician

Dr. Daniel Deakins is a Naturopathic Medical Physician who
believes in discovering and managing the root cause of a
disease to optimize the health and well-being of the body as a
whole. He specializes in primary care with an emphasis on
sports medicine and regenerative medicine. His areas of focus
are soft tissue therapies, physical manipulations, traditional
Chinese medicine with acupuncture, nutrition coaching, and
injection therapy. The integration of these modalities allows Dr.
Deakins to address and manage the physiological and physical
dysfunctions to facilitate the healing process for his patients.

When Dr. Deakins takes a moment out of furthering his
education, you can find this Arizona native outdoors trekking
the trails with his wife and two children, coaching friends and
family through their fitness goals, involving the community in
health and wellness, or participating in a sporting event as an
athlete for Team Semper Fi. He is a firm believer in daily
physical activity and the healing properties that the great outdoors provides.

Dr. Brendan McGuire

Dr. Brendan is a chiropractor who greatly appreciates the natural and holistic approach that good chiropractic care offers. He specializes in pediatrics and sports performance but loves to work with all age groups! He is Webster and perinatally certified through the ICPA and is continuing to further his knowledge in these areas. He loves to work with everyone to help get to the bottom of their health concerns and help restore their body’s own ability to heal. Outside of the office you can typically find me in a weight room or outside playing with my dogs, Luna and Jameson. I like to be outdoors in while traveling and experience different cultures.

Dr. Halle Bensen

Coming from Florida, Dr. Halle is a Second Generation Chiropractor. She graduated with honors from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida Campus and was in chiropractic practice with her father for the past five years. Always feeling a pull to move out west, she is excited for this new opportunity at Primal Practice.

Dr Halle takes an open-minded approach to care. She listens carefully to bring her patients a complete and thorough Plan of Care to help them achieve optimum health and functioning.

Dr. Halle takes a special interest in serving the Pediatric and Geriatric populations. She is Webster Certified providing specialized care for pre-pregnant, pregnant and post-pregnant women and their babies.

Dr Halle believes in the power of natural healthcare, healing touch, proper movement, nutrition and building and maintaining a sustainable lifestyle.

When not in the office, she enjoys being outdoors, exercising and reading up on various topics.

Hi, I’m Tricia Wilkerson

Office Manager

Born in Chicago, Montana has been my home for over 12 years. I have worked in and around healthcare for 17 years with most of my experience coming from the physical therapy field. I have a husband and two kids that all love to outdoor adventure in the spring, summer, and fall. Our favorites involve anything on the water in the sunshine. ​I love music, exercise, and hanging out with my dog - also a slightly neurotic Aussiedoodle 😉
