Herbal and wellness counseling helps to provide you with an alternative perspective to holistic wellness. Wellness counseling can coincide with any traditional form of health therapy. Herbal therapies, in most cases, also blend well with any traditional form of health therapy. From perinatal depression to nutrition counseling and fun Make & Take herbal craft parties, Herbal & Wellness Counseling will help you and your family move towards a more autonomous lifestyle. Herbal education is available for all ages. The style of counseling I provide is to empower clients with knowledge and skill so that they can begin to confidently use natural therapies and resources that have been a part of communities for countless generations. This knowledge belongs with the community.
Herbal & Wellness Counseling Options:
Herbal Make & Take Parties
Salve & Balms
Herbal Oil Infusions
I have been leading community herbal classes since 2013, and studying herbs since 2011. As I become more immersed with educating clients and the community on herbal wellness, I decided to complete a more formal course in herbal healing. I completed my herbalist training through Rosemary Gladstar's The Science & Art of Herbalism course in January of 2017. In addition to immersing our homeschool community in herbal knowledge, I finished an all-age Herbal Curriculum in 2018 and continue to contribute to the community-supported herbal magazine, The Essential Herbal.
As someone that has dabbled in natural therapies since my teen years, I have a love for wild foods, wild crafting, nature walks, and a respect for what God has given us on this beautiful earth to support our body's natural ability to heal and thrive.
Grab your friends and host an herbal make and take! I'll lead the class while you host the party. From nourishment and teas to healing salves and intimacy kits, these fun evenings can be custom catered to your group's requests. Share the $50 fee with your group (max 10 people) and the cost of supplies.
How Herbal & Wellness Counseling Works
Prior to scheduling a session, you will need a minimum of one week (2-4 is ideal) to create a detailed lifestyle journal that will allow me to get a better understanding of your current routines. It is important that you don't change anything about your foods and routines during this time so that we will have an accurate representation of things that may be influencing your current health. You will also complete the detailed Client Intake form so that I may have time to review this prior to meeting which allows us to spend more time on specific needs during the session.
Lifestyle Journal (everything should be as specific as possible):
Sleep habits, times, lengths, dreams
Food habits, times, amount, type
Drinking habits, times, amounts, type
Movement habits, times, amounts, type (include both exercise and daily movement habits)
Sunlight, times, amount
Amount of screen usage, times, amount
Relaxation & Self-Care, times, amount, type
My doula services, including antenatal doula mentoring, labor doula, and postpartum doula care may be reimbursable by your insurance company. Fees are required to be paid in full and you must submit your own claims; however, I will provide my NPI number and supporting information to help you with your claim submission. In many cases, a well-written letter explaining how you believe doula support reduced costs for your birth, as well as persistence, will provide you with a reimbursement. Please contact for any questions.
