Herbal Appointments

Clinic appointments can help guide you to self-empowerment on your healing path.  My practice specializes in supporting the health of women, children, and babies.  I am honored to see clients of all genders when their wellness goals fit into my areas of expertise.  Please read below about my practice to consider whether my perspective would be helpful as you maximize your health.

The guiding principle of my practice is that the ability to heal ourselves and our families is our birthright, not a privilege to be hoarded or a commodity to be sold.  Each of us is the utmost authority on our bodies.  My goal is for the people I counsel to begin to trace the threads connecting all aspects of their lives to their state of wellness, and to develop a proactive understanding of how to maximize their health.

How Does Seeing an Herbalist Work?

Herbal consultations last up to 1 hour and take place over a cup of tea in Newfane or Brattleboro, Vermont, or over the phone for long-distance clients.  It is an in-depth, personal conversation about your goals and history.  New clients fill out an informed consent form and an intake form, available via email when appointments are scheduled.

Consultations are followed by an in-depth written summary of recommendations for you to refer back to, including herbal, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations to help you meet your wellness goals.  Most clinical clients will receive one or more handmade herbal remedies (custom or standard as appropriate), but sometimes I may recommend products made by other companies, if that is the best fit for you.  Many of my clients like to make their own formulas as part of the self-empowerment process; in these cases, I am happy to provide instructions.  I routinely refer clients to other practitioners to provide well-rounded, holistic care as appropriate; this may include massage therapy, acupuncture, or other modalities.

Changing deep-rooted health imbalances is a process that happens in the fullness of time, so all new clients are scheduled for a follow-up to ensure that recommendations are helpful and allow for any necessary adjustments to formulas.

Quick Questions

“Quick Question” consultations are available for people with simple, straightforward questions that can be answered within 15 minutes.  They are available for both first time clients and existing clients.  If more time is needed, the client may choose to continue into a full consultation, as they prefer.

Quick Question Mini-Consultation, 15 minutes, $30-50 sliding scale

Fees

Fees are based on a sliding scale, and barter is sometimes accepted to cover part of the fee.  This is to help make clinical herbalism more accessible to our community, so please be respectful and contribute as much as you are able, in order to make space for the practice to continue accepting sliding scale and barter clients.

We also offer Consultation Packages for 3+ family members or numerous visits.

It is appropriate to make a reasonable sacrifice as we improve our health: going without a meal in a restaurant or a new outfit to fully engage with our health and healing is acceptable.  However, fees should never cause a hardship, such as trouble paying rent, bills, childcare, etc.  If you feel that the circumstances of your life (including socioeconomic factors, current and/or historical oppression, immigration status, etc.) make affording these fees a hardship, please contact us personally to discuss options.

Formulas
