My role as a practitioner is to recognize the innate wisdom of every client, and to use THE POWER OF plants, practices and intuition to SUPPORT you IN SHIFTING PATTERNS AND BUILDING GREATER resiliency.
In an initial two-hour comprehensive intake we will cover your primary concerns, as well as your medical and social history, to find the herbs and tools that can best shift difficult patterns and imbalances. Follow-up sessions occur every six weeks and allow for an hour of conversation and care. After each appointment I will send you an individualized herbal formula, as well as recommendations for somatic practices, meditations and rituals to further support you in this work. Energetic bodywork is also available for in-person consultations if this modality is desired. Hands-on energy work is an opportunity to release, nourish and ground, and people often experience these sessions as deeply relaxing and restorative.
I have found that healing is rarely linear, but change is always possible. I endeavor to hold space in a way that is non-judgmental, generative, and welcomes your full participation. Because of the therapeutic nature of this work, a commitment to an on-going relationship is most effective.
I see clients in-person in Santa Cruz, Pescadero, and in the greater Bay Area, and I also work with clients in other locations over the phone. (I have found that phone sessions feel just as connected and helpful as in-person sessions as long as clients have a quiet and private place to be.)
My rates for consultations are $100 an hour, including a 2oz individualized herbal formula. I largely provide medicine from plants that I hae grown.
I hold a few low-cost consultations available each month for low-income folks- prioritizing BIPOC, elders and clients with disabilities- so please let me know if you need to access one of these $40 sessions (with herbs at $10 an oz.)
