Using the power of plants, practices and intuition to deepen resiliency.

There are many reasons to feel unwell in this world, and many structural forces that keep us out of balance. Energetic herbalism holds that our mental, emotional and physical health are interwoven, and individual and collective healing are tied. With a foundation in this holistic training, I primarily work with clients who are experiencing:

depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, chronic stress, burnout, PTSD, mood swings, PMS, insomnia and other states of distress, named or unnamed…

These conditions are often rooted in present, past or intergenerational trauma, and I work from a trauma-aware perspective, in collaboration with your resiliency, to support a deeper sense of agency, connection and wholeness.

I believe that wellness must be understood in relation to larger systems of oppression and healing is an integral part of our movements towards justice. I feel honored to work with clients who have previously felt marginalized in their health care experiences. I bring to my practice my experience within queer, trans and gender non-conforming community as well as an awareness of how ableism, white supremacy, classism and fatphobia effect both health and access.

“FINN OAKES IS AN EXTRAORDINARILY GIFTED PRACTITIONER. DEEPLY TRAUMA-INFORMED, INTELLECTUALLY RIGOROUS, AND INTUITIVELY ATTUNED, THEIR SKILL WITH CONNECTING PLANT MEDICINES TO HUMAN NEEDS HAS BEEN UTTERLY LIFE CHANGING FOR ME. THE THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE THEY HAVE CREATED HAS SUSTAINED ME THROUGH WHAT ONCE SEEMED LIKE IMPASSABLE LANDSCAPES.” -MOLLY M
