I enjoy being a part of a respectful, caring, diverse community and welcome working with all people, of all ages.
As an holistic practitioner, I work with the whole person. A consultation will encompass food and rest, activity, work and play. In my practice as a western herbalist, I bring together centuries of herbal tradition and contemporary ideas. After all I was trained as a research scientist.
Always ready to work as part of an integrated team, I am the first to suggest that herbs may not provide all of life's answers to health and wellness. However, the evidence suggests that working with herbs is a very fine place to start. And it's not just evidence. It's my experience too, and that of my clients. Herbs are safe, effective and sufficiently powerful to shift the body towards a state of balance, interrupting endless cycles of inflammation or dis-ease. They can calm the heart, excite the mind, soothe a nagging cough and even slow a rapid heart beat. And that's just the beginning.
Herbs touch the emotional and spiritual sides of our beings and not simply the physical.
I welcome working with people, no matter where they live. I offer consultations in my office here in Erie or your home. I'm also happy with various mixes of phone, email and video conferencing.
