What can I expect during a session?

I will conduct a thorough intake of your current health and health history including a review of all body systems - even those that may not seem connected to your primary complaint(s). Together we will look for patterns of imbalance and signs from your body about what is going on so that you can to get to the core of your particular issues. By looking deeper at the roots of disease vs. only symptoms, you put yourself in a better position to shift your health and start feeling wonderful.

I am also deeply passionate about educating my clients so that they are informed about their health and more fully understand the deep wisdom our bodies offer us every single day, always urging us towards healing and wholeness. I will share with you my thoughts and perspectives as well as current research on why a certain herb, supplement, or dietary change would be beneficial so that you have the information you need to decide whether or not these things feel right for you. The more knowledge you have about your body and what it needs, the better equipped you are to live a healthy, happy life. My hope is that my clients leave my office feeling empowered and inspired about their health, and that this would ripple out to their families, friends, communities and future generations.

After your session, I will research pertinent items that came up during your appointment, making sure I am constantly staying educated and updated on the latest studies and research in the field. As no two people are exactly alike, no two health protocols will be alike either. I will spend time creating your herbal formulas, choosing herbs with your individual story and health goals in mind. Within 1-3 business days, you will be emailed a wellness plan tailored specifically for you, including suggested herbal formulas, supplements, dietary changes and lifestyle recommendations. Herbal formulas will be available for pick up from Forest & Meadow Herbal Shop and Clinic or they can be mailed directly to your home for an additional shipping fee.

How often should I schedule my appointments?

In natural healing, a general rule of thumb is to give yourself one month of healing for every year you have been living with a particular imbalance or disease. Sometimes the body heals more quickly than this, sometimes more slowly, but always in its own time. Initially, it is ideal to see an herbalist every 2-3 weeks so that they can check in on how your herbal formulas, supplements, dietary suggestions and lifestyle changes are working for you. This also allows for a gentle approach to your health care regimen so you can slowly incorporate just a few changes after each session, giving you time to get a new routine under your belt before incorporating further changes. I will work with you to develop a wellness plan that meets you wherever you are at in your healing process.
