Connecting you to the healing power of plants.
You really can love your medicine. And believe it or not, your medicine can love you back.
Does seeking advice about healthcare or taking medicine sometimes leave you feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or confused? Have you ever emerged from a clinic feeling disrespected or disempowered? If this sounds familiar, it's important to know that you’re not alone.
And, that it doesn't have to be that way.
Taking care of your health shouldn't add to the worry and stress you're already feeling if you're facing the challenges of an illness. Managing your health can actually be a nurturing, empowering experience that leaves you feeling confident, positive, and even excited about your choices.
I am a Registered Medical Herbalist, professional member of the Canadian Herbalist Association, and a graduate of the Diploma of Phytotherapy program at Pacific Rim College. I work with plant medicines to help people get well and stay well. I strive to find the root causes of illness, then match you up with the plants that are most perfectly suited to you. I love supporting people with all kinds of issues, and I’m especially passionate about helping health-conscious, holistic-minded people find effective ways to incorporate natural medicine into their healthcare.
I may be just the right practitioner for you if:
- You have a new diagnosis that’s freaking you out, and you're wondering if natural treatment options exist to help you
- You have a longstanding treatment plan that could use some reassessment or extra support
- You’re white-knuckling it through a treatment that has you wondering which is worse — the sickness, or the treatment?
- You find yourself asking, “Ugh! Isn’t there anything I can do about these side effects?"
- You feel great, and you really want to keep it that way
I've lived through all of these scenarios. That's why I do what I do.
My greatest desire is to help clients feel supported and informed.
I know that there can be several ways to approach illness and treatment; what matters to me is finding the one that’s right for you. I also know that, ultimately, you know what’s best for your health, and that the choices you make about your wellbeing are deeply personal. They deserve reverence and respect. Whatever your particular scenario, my goal is to help you use plant medicines to their fullest potential.
