Traditional Western Herbal Medicine
As a practitioner of herbal medicine, my aim is to gently help people achieve their health and well being goals using the medicine that the plant world offers.
I use mostly locally sourced herbs and blend most of the teas and tinctures myself.
I believe that the plants we need to cure our physical, mental, and spiritual imbalances are the plants that grow near us. Take a look around and see what plants seem to pop up most often in your life. You may be surprised at the helpful herbs that are right under your nose!
