I grew up learning natural medicine from my elders. Being rooted in the innate healing power of the body’s wisdom & the spirit of nature is what guides my work today.

A serious injury to my spine as a teenager sent me down a path of deep learning; for the first time in my life, at sixteen, it seemed every health care system — conventional and natural — failed me.  Determined to understand health, disease and what healing truly means I pursued professional training in both herbalism and homeopathy.  On this journey of learning, I healed my chronic pain, and made a personal commitment to help others access their own potential for healing.

I’m a classically trained homeopath & western herbalist offering one-on-one consultations at my clinic, on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada, where I’ve been in practice since 2004.  I also serve patients all over the world via video and telephone sessions.  Visit my appointments page here.

My passion is educating and empowering individuals in the wisdom of natural medicine through classes and one-on-one sessions.  I teach several classes, workshops and retreats that range from one weekend to an online herbal program, The Alchemy of Herbal Medicine.  I’m a guest teacher at schools, conferences and symposiums throughout North America and further abroad. In addition to teaching and practicing herbal medicine and homeopathy, I also teach tools for living a fulfilled and vital life. These teachings are drawn from mystical earth-based traditions.

This in-depth herbal program invites you to explore the richly varied, endlessly creative botanical universe. Delight in the wisdom that is revealed both in traditional knowledge and modern naturopathic practice.

Access your innermost instincts as a healer, and embody the principles of self-care that are integral to the life of a medicine-maker.

Fire Cider: An Easy-to-make homemade respiratory tonic

Many decades ago, renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar coined the term “Fire Cider” for the delicious respiratory tonic made from easy to find kitchen ingredients macerated in apple cider vinegar.
