Herbal Medicine and Nutrition

  • I craft custom herbal blends, supplements, & dietary recommendations based on your unique constitution, condition, & health goals.

  • Herbs can come in many forms, including, but not limited to: tinctures, capsules, powders, raw herbs, decoctions, foods, teas & elixirs. They may even come wrapped in chocolate!

  • Good health begins in the gut. When it comes to nutrition (or anything for that matter), Chinese Medicine does not prescribe a one-sized fits all approach (we are all unique snowflakes and what works for one does not always work for another). In general, we will all feel our best when we consume foods that are grown locally in any given season, and shift our diets according to changes in our environment and our bodies. I can help you create & implement a personalized diet that promotes health & happiness from season to season!

Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP):

IBP is “a non-invasive somatic psychotherapy that treats the whole person, integrating body, mind, emotions, and spirit, that can facilitate deeper more meaningful work in less time with lasting results. IBP integrates the best approaches from Eastern and Western psychological, physiological and spiritual body-mind theories and practices into a highly efficient and effective somatic implementation model for psychotherapy.

IBP experiential practices help to break through old, somatically maintained dysfunctional behavior patterns by reawakening and establishing fully integrated states of well-being, constancy and sense of self in the body that can lead to a transformation of consciousness at the core of one’s being.”
