ENERGETIC HERBALISM addresses the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health of each individual. In this holistic and therapeutic modality, my work as a practitioner is to help find the root causes of imbalances and to support you in making the changes that you need for better health and well-being. In an initial two hour comprehensive intake we will cover your medical and social history to find the plants that can best help to shift difficult patterns, trauma imprints and illnesses. Each follow-up session allows for an hour of conversation and support and an individualized herbal formula is created for you after each appointment. The majority of the herbal medicines that I use are made from plants that I have tended to from seed. 

People come to energetic herbalism for support around a number of physical challenges including chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances and menopausal changes.  And I most often work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief or PTSD.

I work from a trauma-aware perspective and I am always honored to work with other survivors. I am particularly excited to support people who have previously felt marginalized in their health care experiences and 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.

"I have worked with Finn for a bit over a year and am grateful for the sessions we have had together. Their skill and sage consideration to healing and helping is intuitive, heart-strong, non-judgmental, and holistic. Similar to the name of the farm that many of the plants are grown on, Finn strives to get to the root of the cause, and connect me to the plants and practice that have helped support my healing, both on physical and emotional levels.
