My Story

I have been working with herbs for the last eleven years and helping clients since 2011.  I had my own personal journey with back and nerve pain which started me on my course of natural healing with herbs.  It didn't take long to find out that I could empower myself and others in a journey with these plants that includes many levels of healing.  My focus in training others is to make them feel comfortable with the plants to start with, and then show them in steps how to become an herbalist on their own without feeling overwhelmed.  My training consists of herbs, nutrition, and clinical practice that involves listening to the client and focusing on healing all aspects of their being.  I like to give my clients space to be heard and to heal on their own time.  I include facial, tongue, and pulse evaluation to see the whole picture of their health and my recommendations are based on each individual.
