Herbal Medicine


Herbal medicine, or plant medicine, is a form of wholistic healing utilizing plants. When used properly and respectfully, herbal medicine is a safe, effective, and empowering approach to address medical conditions and support overall health. We are all part of an ecosystem and the more we come into balance, the more we can be of service to others and the Earth.

While I specialize in mental and emotional wellness, I also work with conditions wherein mental and emotional issues are the secondary concern, such as hypothyroidism, infertility, fatigue, insomnia, and adrenal fatigue. Working outside the western medical model allows me the opportunity to collaborate with my clients on a wholistic wellness plan, supporting the whole self--beyond simply alleviating symptoms. Herbs also serve as an effective complement to psycho-spiritual therapy, flower essences, and traditional medicine. 

I trust deeply in the co-creative healing process with my clients and the plants. I am passionate about engaging both the spiritual and scientific dimensions of the plant kingdom, and see herbal medicine as a radical way to promote ecological and social justice. Despite the ever-accelerating instability of our world, I trust in the power of our resiliency as individuals and as a collective.
