I am a folk herbalist at heart, pulled into clinical practice by the need I see around me as our medical system strains under the pressure of profit-driven decision making.
The remedies I use are made with fresh plant material I've harvested in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, many in my own backyard. I use tongue diagnosis and pulse testing as tools for matching people with remedies, but rely most heavily on careful listening. My formal training is mostly in the Western Eclectic tradition, and true to that tradition, I draw willingly from many sources of herbal wisdom.
I have been a companion to people in times of birth and death, and I am drawn to the work of supporting these transitions.
I am a mother, partner, neighbor, city-dweller, and care-giver. I tend crowded gardens of food and medicine.
On my better days, I look at the world around me and bow my head at the enormity of what I won’t have time to learn.
