Prior to a consultation, I will send you an intake form to complete before our meeting. During a consultation, we will sit together and drink tea, and talk about you and what brought you here. An herbal consultation with a wisewoman herbalist focuses on your whole being: body, heart, mind, and spirit. I work by asking questions, listening to your story, and paying attention to physical symptoms. I will offer my herbal and intuitive advice; I may also offer smudging (ritual cleansing with herbal smoke), guided meditation, and/or song. At the end of our consultation, you will leave with a simple plan of herbal preparations for health and nourishment (and guidance on where to acquire your herbs), and may include suggestions for ritual, movement, and/or nutrition.
Initial appointments are 90 minutes. Follow-up consultations are 1 hour. My rate is sliding scale*, $60 – $100.
*About that sliding scale: I offer my consultations on a sliding scale in order to make them more accessible to a wider range of folks. Those with access to more resources pay more and thus provide the cushion for those with less access to pay less. If you have access to financial wealth or class privilege, please choose the higher end of the sliding scale as a form of economic justice and accountability. (For a great article by Haddassah Damien on the intricacies of sliding scale as a form of economic justice, go here.)
