Dr. Rebecca Sornson is a naturopathic physician and co-founder of Hearth along with her husband, Joshua Kraetsch.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Health Psychology, Rebecca worked as an organic farmer, a massage therapist, a farm-to-table cooking class instructor, and helped run a summer camp for teenagers. Through these adventures, Rebecca's respect and interest in individuals' healing journeys grew and deepened.
This led her to Bastyr University where she completed her doctorate in naturopathic medicine. While in school, she co-authored a research study on the microbiome of organic farmers. She has had advanced training in herbal medicine, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, infant craniosacral therapy, biofeedback, yoga therapy, and whole foods nutrition.
Her specialty is treating people from an ecosystem perspective which means investigating how food, lifestyle, stress, psychological health, and spiritual health may all be playing a role in a person's wellbeing. Rebecca is also an avid cook and herbalist and relies heavily on food and plants for medicinal support.
In her free time, Rebecca loves being on the beach, in the garden, or in the woods with Josh and their young daughter, Ada. She also loves to sing, read, travel, walk, ferment, and have dinner parties.
Dr. Brittney Northrop is a transplant from the east coast, where her journey toward health and healing began. In her early 20s she was seriously injured in a car accident, and discovered that the allopathic medical model was great for saving lives in emergencies, but was not designed for holistic care and long-term wellness. By seeking out alternative therapies for herself, she discovered naturopathic medicine, and decided this was her calling. She is a graduate of Bastyr University, where she earned her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine.
Dr. Northrop strives to create a deep therapeutic relationship with her patients, offering a highly individualized approach to medicine that empowers people in their journeys toward health. Her areas of interest include homeopathy, hydrotherapy, behavioral and mind-body medicine, botanical medicine, and physical medicine.
She has received additional training in homeopathy, hydrotherapy, biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and colon hydrotherapy. Her clinical interests include pain, complex chronic disease, digestive complaints, and mental health. In her free time, she can be found hiking, foraging, making herbal medicine, playing music, and whipping up culinary delights in her kitchen.
