Commitment to Financial Accessibility:
There are a limited number of discount consultation and workshop spaces available. Please contact me if finances are a barrier to accessing anything that I offer.
Commitment to Dismantling White Supremacy:
Western herbalism and western herbalists have historically not been inclusive spaces for Black/Brown/Latinx People of Color or Indigenous folks, due to systemic racism, financial and cultural barriers. I offer sliding scale (down to at-cost) pricing for People of Color and Indigenous folks who would otherwise be unable to attend herbalism workshops or consultations. I hope that this might create more spaces for accessibility, empowerment and safety for people who face systemic discrimination. For me, it is important to acknowledge white supremacy and racism inherent in our society and in herbal medicine. Let’s be a part of changing that.
Commitment to Trans-inclusivity:
In an effort to be more transgender-positive in my clinical practice and teaching spaces, I use language in a way that doesn’t equate physiology with gender. This means not assigning certain organs to “men” or “women” but rather just referring to the body parts themselves, with an understanding that any body part can be a part of any gender.
