Herbal Coaching Consultations
During an herbal coaching consultation we will look holistically at your current health concerns or goals and work together to establish a wellness plan. This process will look different from what you may be used to with traditional providers as there will be a lot of focus on understanding your background, current situation, and goals for the future with you as a key player in the path to your goal. Herbalists are not licensed healthcare providers and therefore unable to diagnose or treat any conditions. Instead, herbalists can help provide guidance for health and lifestyle modifications that can work as a complement to care you are receiving from other providers.
I am here to offer guidance and suggestions based on my education and experience while helping you to better understand your circumstance and how you would like to proceed. Together, we will arrive at a plan for wellness.
To begin I will have you complete an intake form and submit any other information that is relevant to your circumstance. It is best to submit this information at least 3 days before we have our consultation.
We can meet in person or online/phone for about an hour to discuss your intake form and get a more in-depth understanding of the situation. I may provide some suggestions during this time, but within 48 hours I will provide a more thorough list of suggestions for lifestyle modifications, herbs, supplements, recommended articles/reading, or alternative therapies.
It is best if we can met again in 1 -3 months after trying the protocol suggestions to make revisions and see how things are working.
Although I am newer to doing one-on-one consultations, I have been studying herbs and natural health for over 10 years and providing herbal suggestions to people throughout this time (see my about me page for more specifics). The time has come to begin requesting that these consultations take place in a more formal arrangement as the demands on my time and energy for “free advice” have become prohibitive for me. As a newer practitioner, my price scale is modest and I am happy to offer sliding scale options.
An initial intake + consultation with an herbal plan of action is $65.
A follow-up meeting to discuss how things are going and revise the plan with new suggestions is $45.
Sometimes people ask to just “pick my brain” and want to have a short phone call or email exchange. It is $35 to have a 15-30 minute phone call with the intent for herbal thoughts/suggestions (generally with an email follow-up), or for me to thoughtfully respond to an email-based question with a list of herbal considerations. If there are many questions and I take several hours to reply I will move to an hourly fee to respond of $35/hour.
Please fill out the contact form below to get started. Let me know your general concern and if I think I am a good fit to help, I will respond with a disclosure form to sign as well as an intake form to complete before we schedule our meeting.
