Details

Consultations last 1 hour and are either done in person, here at the farm over a cup of tea, or over the phone.  All new clients fill out a 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.  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.

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 available to our community, so please be respectful and contribute as much as you are able–this makes space for the practice to continue accepting sliding scale and barter clients.

Initial Consultation, $50-$120

Follow-up, $40-80

Formulas

Tinctures, syrups, salves, oils, honeys, teas, and more are available as both standard and custom items.  See our formulas page for more information and prices; different sizes from those listed are available for clinical clients as appropriate.  Clinical clients may reorder formulas at will, but adjustments to custom formulas need to be accompanied by a follow-up.

Payment

Old Ways Herbal accepts checks, cash in person, and credit cards/Paypal (3% Paypal fee)

My Practice

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.

Drying Holy Basil everywhere.

Drying Holy Basil everywhere.

 This principle forms the backbone of my teaching, which is designed to give students the tools they need to understand how to maintain the wellness of their loved ones, instead of simply presenting lists of remedies.  This is true at both the Old Ways Herbal School of Plant Medicine and my conference speaking engagements, including the Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference, MidAtlantic Women’s Herbal Conference, Herbstalk, Brattleboro Medicinal Herb Day, Wisconsin Organic Gardening Conference, and more.

My articles about herbalism, published here on the Old Ways Herbal blog and for several magazines including Vermont’s Local Banquet, The Country Grind Quarterly, and Green Living Magazine, are based on the same guiding principle.

My clinical practice is centered on the guiding principle, as I know that each of us is the utmost authority on our bodies.

My goal is for the people I teach and 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.

Self-care is intrinsic to our healing birthright, and it is the responsibility of community herbalists to share our knowledge as widely as possible to bring healing back into the arms of our families.

My Education

Improving the accessibility of both knowledge and the natural world has always been my passion. I have been teaching sliding-scale and free workshops on herbalism, nutrition, traditional skills, and holistic theory since 2004, for community groups, social justice organizations, conferences, and privately. I have volunteered with free clinics since 2005—starting in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina–and helped found and run a free herbal clinic in North Carolina. I saw my first clinical clients in 2004, and every year that goes by brings new growth to my practice of herbalism. I am a graduate of the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and several shorter programs that have blessed me with an in-depth understanding of many schools of thought in traditional healing. My education as a Registered Nurse in women’s health and birth has given me a uniquely in-depth perspective on the role of healers in health and disease and the importance of knowledge to self-empowerment, as well as enhancing my clinical skills and scope of practice. I am so thankful to be able to draw on the knowledge of my teachers as I pass it along.
