I believe that healthcare is a human right; no one will be turned away for lack of funds, I am happy to work with you within your financial situation. This includes: Full or partial bartering (including work/trade, products and services) and sliding scale appointments. I also run a student-led free clinic through the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine and will be able to refer folks who truly can't afford services. Please email for options!
Foundational to my clinical practice is a commitment to client-centered care and an awareness of how personal, cultural and societal traumas affect our health. Resiliency-building practices and nervous system support are built in to all health plans. I also offer somatic herbal experiencing for those who are interested in a more focused mental health support. I am a facilitator of health, my clients are the healers.
I am trained in Functional Herbalism, a plant centered practice integrating traditional western herbalism with clinical nutrition and functional medicine. It is a model that honors traditional plant-based care, while recognizing the importance of lifestyle modifications, herbs, and supplements, alongside functional laboratory testing to address the whole person rather than an isolated set of symptoms or disease. I am not a doctor and do not use blood work to diagnose illness, only as a tool to support health.
My practice modality lends itself well to complicated chronic health issues. The body is complicated but with a varied set of symptoms there is often one or two root causes. Because of this I am able to work with many ailments, including but not limited to:
Acne and skin problems
Chronic digestive complaints
Nervous system dysregulation (POTS, Hypervigilance)
Mental health struggles (anxiety, depression, PTSD/C-PTSD)
Allergies, histamine intolerance and mast cell activation disorders
Chronic and acute infections
Metabolic Issues (hormone dysregulation, Hypo/Hyperthyroidism, insulin resistance, diabetes)
High Blood Pressure
What to Expect: You will fill out your intake forms and upload any recent blood work within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment time. The initial intake lasts 1-2 hours. The first session is about information gathering and getting to know each other. We will go over your intake forms in-depth, and you will have time to share your health narrative and we will clarify your health goals together. You will receive a customized health plan within 72 hours of your consult.
Note: Clinical Herbalism is my passion, but due to other responsibilities, I am currently only able to see clients one day a week. Because my time with clients is limited, I ask for a $50 deposit to hold your appointment. This will go towards your consultation price and is refundable up to 48 hours before your scheduled time. Time is a limited resource, both mine and yours. Thank you for understanding!
