Ultimately, all that truly heals is self-healing. The proper application of herbs, balanced approach to foods, and the healing touch of massage simply awaken the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Each healing journey is unique. As a practitioner I offer health assessments, resources of information to make informed choices about your health, custom herbal formulas, personalized nutrition guidance, and bodywork.



The art of Herbal Medicine came into my life as a young child. I continued my passion of self study and plant medicine my entire life. In my twenties I began attending herb school full time, and later gained clinical certification at the Rocky Mt. Center for Botanical Studies. The healing plants continued to guide me to do apprenticeships with various Medical and Folk Herbalists over the years. In light of holistic health, nutrition became an integral part of my practice. I received certification in clinical nutrition through Paul Bergner at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism.   I have been teaching classes and seeing clients for the past 12 years (and counting).  I truly enjoy the practice. It would be my pleasure to work with you on a  journey to your health!
