Dr. Heather Morton received her doctor of naturopathic medicine degree from Bastyr University in 2015. During her studies, her focus was on primary care, women’s health, environmental medicine, and mind-body medicine. After graduation, Heather was blessed to complete a 3-year primary care and specialty naturopathic medicine mentorship with Bremerton's premiere doctor, Katherine Barkshire, ND, RN.
Heather is comfortable seeing a wide range of conditions both as a solo naturopathic doctor and in conjunction with outside specialists when necessary. As an advanced student clinician of naturopathic medicine, she completed a year-long rotation in mind-body medicine, providing direct clinical knowledge of how the this connection can have a significant impact on all aspects of health. Tools for stress management as well as individualized dietary recommendations and exercise prescriptions are present on every naturopathic treatment plan. Heather is also a lover of herbal medicine and enjoys discussing how we can use all those “weeds” growing outside to nourish and benefit for essentially no cost! Heather is comfortable managing common pharmaceutical interventions, reviews medical research daily, and is committed to remaining current with the latest health interventions and standards of care. She stays current in her field through membership of Naturopathic Academy of Primary Care Physicians.
