After a decade of dedicated studies, I have formed a deeply rooted connection and an understanding of medicinal plants. Herbal medicine has been a lifestyle since the age of seventeen. I began working in the first herb store called Spirit’s Path, located in Santa Barbara, California. Since then I have received over 1,000 hours of study and many years of hands on work in the field. My clinical studies of western herbal medicine began in 2005, by studying family herbalism at The North Carolina School of Holistic Herbalism in Asheville, NC. From there, I entered into the Roots of Herbalism course at the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine followed by the Total Plant Immersion program and apprenticeship. Journeying on to gain greater clinical skills, in 2010 I began the Intensive program at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine which included a clinical internship at the Ithaca Free Clinic. I have had the pleasure of teaching at and working for the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, offering free services with the Herb Bus in Atlanta, GA, assisting Five Flavors Herbs in Oakland, CA, and working for the Herbiary in Asheville, NC. I am pleased to share the knowledge gained and offer herbal consults to the greater Asheville community. I will assist you in your healing journey, while offering guidance and support.
A session begins with a 90 minute initial consultation for all new clients. This initial session includes a in-depth look into your health history and covers your health goals. A complete review of lifestyle, nutrition, and emotional/mental/spiritual health patterns will be explored to gain a clear picture of where you are in your health journey. Herbalism is a holistic practice. Herbal consultations are client-specific, focusing on the whole person, clients receive personalized care that aims to gently bring the body back into a healthy balance. Formulas can be created from my apothecary and we will discuss options for additional resources you may find in the area. This includes food and nutritional counseling, lifestyle suggestions, and of course, herbal recommendations. I will work with you as my client, doing my best to assist you meeting your health goals.
