My services include one-on-one herbal consultation sessions, some bodywork, hosting herbal first aid & wellness spaces at events, providing workshops, and consulting on herbal goods.
Herbal Wellness Consultations
For herbal consultations schedule a complementary 15 minute phone or videoconferencing consultation free of charge.
The initial consultation is more in-depth (an hour and a half - two hours) We will sit together to discuss your medical history, dietary and lifestyle practices, and all of the little important details which make you the unique person you are. This consultation includes face, tongue, and pulse readings as well. All is strictly confidential.
We will explore the underlying causes of illness & create a wellness plan that is practical and attainable. Throughout our time together I share tools, resources, and supportive protocols with you.
Formulas for presentations rather than diagnosis. The organic herbal formulas are finely tuned to your specific constitution and needs. Rather than offering a single formula or two for a general condition, I will make a more specific formulations to best address the presentation of each unique person. The medicinals within it are artfully hand selected to address your unique physiological, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Healing Oppression Sliding Scale
It is important to me that herbal health care is financially accessible to all, not just for those who can afford it. It’s also important that practitioners are supported in our work. In order to balance my own need to support myself, value other herbalists, and accessibility, I offer a limited number of sliding scale sessions per month. The sliding scale that I use takes into account how interlocking systems of power impacts those who are most marginalized in society. Ones socio-economic status is often very much intertwined with where we sit in relation to privilege and power.
In a society that never talks about the root causes of socio-economic status, yet retains enormous class differences, I acknowledge how difficult this process can be but it is an important part of working towards providing equal access, justice, and our collective healing. To figure out what fee you should pay on this sliding scale, I have a form, inspired by thirdroot community health center that you fill out for your own reflection and purposes and to determine the appropriate fee for my services.
Fellow herbalist Elokin Orton-Cheung expressed the following which speaks for me as well: “As a practitioner, it’s important to me to have a rate that is accessible to my clients, and fair to other practitioners in my community who also make their living through this work. My sliding scale rates reflect my commitment to the herbal community while working towards making herbal medicine accessible. I don’t want to see anyone turned away for lack of funds. I also do trades for reduced rates. Please contact me to find out more.”
