An initial appointment for a new patient lasts approximately 1.5 to 2-hours and includes a thorough exploration of your primary health concern and underlying factors. We’ll discuss your dietary likes and dislikes, sleep patterns, digestive function, emotional health, anxieties and stress factors. This information leads me to understand your underlying constitutional pattern from which I create a formula that best matches you. I evaluate a person’s health on three levels: mind, body and spirit. My goal is to assist a person to regain their personal freedom on all these levels.
Relevant information to share for our working together is since the age of 14 years old I’ve had a strong intuitive ability that allows me to see or feel what is blocking a person in their health and overall vitality. This is a natural ability that I have not studied or learned, my teacher has been within. Though throughout my life I sought guidance from which I learned how to hone this skill, I do not subscribe to a particular teacher or school of thought.
If you seek my assistance with only herbs or only homeopathy please specify when you set up your appointment.
I may recommend nutritional supplements or individualized lifestyle changes to assist your body during It’s healing process. In some cases if it fits, I recommend rituals, ceremonies or personal practices to help shift the mind and the spirit.
After your appointment I will give a homeopathic remedy, or a herbal formula – usually both.
I make nearly all of my herbal medicines from plants I grow, wildcraft or source from sustainable growers. For this reason these herbs are available seasonally, in which case if I cannot supply with the herbs (but I will always supply with the homeopathics) I will give you the formula and let you know where you can purchase it elsewhere.
In some cases, it can take a few days to create your formula, in which case I will mail your remedies to you (locals can arrange for pick up).
Depending on how acute or severe your condition is, I may suggest a follow-up appointment three or four weeks after you begin your formula or homeopathic remedy. Follow-ups last 45-minutes to an hour.
The cost of a New Patient appointment ($190) includes tax, and also your remedies (homeopathic or herbal) for one month.
Subsequent follow-up appointments ($100) includes the cost of your primary homeopathic prescription, but does not include herbal formulas or special ordered products.
There may be other supplements or herbs I recommend that you purchase separately at a health food shop.

“I’ve observed homeopathy’s usefulness in a number of my patients with a variety of conditions, including autoimmune disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, skin problems, and allergies. I’ve also used it myself with success.”
— Dr. Andrew Weil MD, pioneer physician in integrative health and author
