Herbal Consultations

*PLEASE NOTE: I am currently offering consults by phone, rather than in person. (Unless you happen to live nearby.)

With great fondness for the place that I live, I practice bioregional herbalism, utilizing local medicinal plants to improve the quality of life and reduce suffering. I view my relationship with clients as a partnership; together we utilize my education and experience, along with the client’s circumstances and intuition to identify realistic goals and helpful tools.

My suggestions may include herbal formulas, food recommendations, and lifestyle considerations. If it is appropriate, I may also direct the client to other healing modalities or allopathic care. I hope these consultations are a source of empowerment for my clients; that they may leave with conducive tools for self-care.

I offer consultations primarily for:

  • bacterial & viral infection care
  • wound care
  • digestive imbalances
  • chronic pain
  • menstrual discomfort and irregularities
  • pregnancy, miscarriage, labor, and postpartum support
  • sleep disturbances
  • anxiety & depression (I recommend seeing a mental health counselor alongside this care)

If you are wondering about a situation that is not listed here, feel free to ask. 

[Standard disclaimer: As an herbalist, I do not diagnose or cure illness. Nor do I prescribe medication. I educate on the traditional use of herbs to help bring the body back into balance.]

Location

I am doing most consultations over the phone these days, as I live way out in the boonies. Though if you live in my area, it’d be great to meet face to face. 

Cost

I don’t do this to make money and I am happy to offer FREE consults. The greatest compensation is to keep me updated with your health journey, as feedback is an important part of my continuing education. Occasionally clients want to share financial support for my practice. If this is the case, I would suggest a sliding scale donation of $0-$60. 

What to expect

During a consultation, we will discuss the client’s symptoms, lifestyle, and health history.  I may utilize traditional diagnostic tools such as tongue and pulse assessment, if we are face to face. The client does not need to share any information they do not want to.  At the end of the Beautyberryconsultation, the client will receive wellness recommendations.  

Consults can take from 30-90 minutes.

Please share any significant western medical diagnosis and lab reports, along with any pharmaceuticals or supplements you are taking. Feel free to include a trusted family member or friend if you’d like some extra support.

*All information shared in consultation is considered strictly confidential.

Herbal Medicine

Tinctures from my apothecary are available at $10 for 1 oz, $18 for 2 oz, or $35 for 4 oz.

When working with clients, I usually direct them towards medicine sources that will be easy for them to access continually. This can include learning to make one’s own medicine or buying it online or at the store. Sourcing from my apothecary is usually a last resort, as I am not trying to make clients dependent on me for their medicine.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please notify 24 hours in advance.
