How Does It Work?
I interview clients for an hour to an hour and a half, then try to find clues as to what is causing your main complaint. I then create a plan for you that will be discussed in a follow-up appointment. We may then discuss things like needing different or better nutrition, how food preparation affects absorption, food allergy elimination, changes to food and drink choices, enhancing sleep quality and amount, and possible deficiencies seen from clues from your own body. I hope to help guide my clients to better lifestyle choices overall.
If appropriate, I can then create a personalized herbal formula tailored to your individual needs. My herbal education focused on how to combine herbs together to meet the individual’s needs, sometimes combing several herbs together to enhance the needed effect. This might take the form of an external wash, a warm tea, a food or herb that is added to foods, or an herbal extract mixed taken with water.
My individualized plans may help address health issues like these:

My Approach to Food:
We all strive to nourish our individual bodies with the best foods. But fed isn’t always the same as nourished.
I recognize that there’s food for life, and food for the soul: those foods that perhaps aren’t the best for us, but bring us pleasure. I try to help clients (and myself!) strike a balance so that we can be fully nourished and still enjoy our “soul food” treats in a healthful way. For instance, enjoying our treat after a meal helps it to digest slower, with less insulin release, than eating dessert on its own in an afternoon.
A healthy goal is to try to eat more homemade foods than not, more real foods than unreal, less crazy food dyes, more wild fish and grass-fed meats/dairy where possible, more vegetables than fruits, change our fats to healthier fats, eat enough protein, and lower our intake of fast-absorbing foods, replacing them with whole-fruit or whole grain sources for our treats. In short, keep the body nourished and balanced.
