About Dr. Melanie Morford

I am a licensed naturopathic physician working in Washington State. I received my doctorate from Bastyr University in Seattle and completed my clinical training as a physician in Washington and Hawaii in both general practice and surgical settings.

My Bachelor’s degree is in Business Administration from Washington State University, and I also completed graduate coursework in French language studies at University of Washington.  In previous adventures, I’ve also been an insurance broker, licensed massage therapist, flight attendant, model, small business consultant, and wild dolphin researcher. In other words, it’s been an interesting and blessed life so far.

I find what draws me most to the art and science of natural medicine is how it seeks to treat the whole person —as opposed to merely treating symptoms— and works to integrate all aspects of an individual’s life experience into a deeper, more profoundly felt understanding of what it means to be truly healthy.  I am continually inspired and awed by the depth of courage and compassion I have the privilege of witnessing through my patients’ stories.

I am always in the process of learning more… and I further shape my medical treatments and philosophies with my own personal explorations in yoga, homeopathy, Ayurveda, and endocrinology.  I find nothing more rewarding than helping my patients find balance in their lives and achieve their highest possible health and vitality.
