Herbal Consultations

mimosa.jpg

An herbal consultation is a one-on-one session in which we sit down and discuss your health, particular health concerns you might have, and how to integrate herbal medicine into your life. Together we’ll establish goals, discuss shifts in your life that can be made, and address the challenges that keep you from full wellness and healing. We will work together to isolate your health disruptions and find herbs to support these issues. As a holistic practitioner, I offer support for both acute ailments and long-term chronic concerns, working with herbal medicine and other holistic health-focused suggestions to create a framework that puts your health back into your own hands. With the consultation you will receive a custom-blended herbal formula, most often tea or tincture, created specifically for you.

Mondays 9am-3pm & Tuesdays 9am-3pm

via phone or Skype

Initial consult (1-1.5 hrs): $120 (includes 4oz formula and shipping cost)

Follow-ups suggested in 3-5 weeks & run at a lower rate: $45. Re-fills are $12/oz

COMMUNITY CLINIC

give what you can, receive what you need

Open Sky Herb Clinic is a sliding scale community herbal clinic the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Good Fight Herb Co. shop: 253 1/2 Warren Street, Hudson NY

This is a lower cost sliding scale done in person bi-monthly. I provide the same consultation service at a lower rate. The sliding scale price for this clinic for an initial consult is $45-85. Follow-ups are $35-75. The range is large to enable those who can afford the higher end to allow others that cannot to pay on the lower, and make healing and herbalism as accessible as possible.

I am not a licensed healthcare practitioner, doctor or nurse, and I do not diagnose, treat, or prescribe. This practice does not take the place of the allopathic/western healthcare system, rather I see it like I am a healthcare “doula” of sorts, a companion/collaborator/helping hand on your journey to health and through the multifaceted world of plant medicine. What I will do is listen, support, and assist you in elucidating current health concerns and in achieving your health goals. With herbs!

The Philosophy:

Herbalism is one of the oldest forms of medicine in our country, and is still, world-wide, the most practiced form of healthcare. In many ways, using herbs and seeing an herbalist connects you to these past traditions while also connecting you more closely with your own body and to the earth and ecosystem around you. We live in a culture where healthcare is both expensive and objectifying, where most often people don't feel heard or asked questions or like they are an active participant in their experience of healing. The goal with my practice is to educate and enable you to regain your personal health autonomy, to find out what YOU think and how YOU are feeling. It is not a replacement of doctors and hospitals and western medicine, which have an integral place and serve many people very well. But it offers an alternative for preventative and supportive care, to help you maintain and enhance your own sense of wellness. The goal is to restore connection and balance in the body and herbs are a safe and affordable (!) way to work with your health.
