A thorough consultation is essential for accurate match-making between human and plant. If you are looking for a customized herbal formula that is designed to meet your specific needs, consider a health consultation with one of our staff herbalists.
In her own words…
The initial consultation lasts an hour and a half, during which time I collect a detailed health history as well as an energetic assessment of a client’s emotional and physical needs. We go over all of the major systems of the body, looking for patterns and ways that each part is affecting the whole. I draw on systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda as well as Traditional Western Herbalism. This is both a scientific and intuitive process that allows me to make individually-tailored herbal recommendations for each client.
As an herbalist, I do not diagnose, treat, or prescribe medical conditions. I do work with my clients to develop natural strategies to support health, well-being, and the body’s own healing processes. This is often in the form of diet and lifestyle recommendations, as well as herbal teas and tinctures.
After the initial consultation I try to follow up with clients once a month for the first 2-3 months, then on an as needed basis. Most formulas need to be re-evaluated about once a season, and this provides an excellent opportunity to reevaluate your health and tweak the formula accordingly. Follow-up sessions can take 30-60 minutes and are available in person or by phone.
My fees are $95 for the initial hour and a half consultation plus the first follow-up consultation, and $40 for subsequent follow-ups.
