I grew up learning natural medicine from my elders. This rooted me in the innate healing power of the body’s wisdom & the spirit of health.  This is what guides my work today.

A serious injury to my spine as a teenager tossed me  down a path of deep learning; for the first time in my life, at sixteen, it seemed every health care system — conventional and natural — failed me.  Determined to understand health, disease and healing, I pursued professional training in both herbalism and homeopathy.  On this journey of learning, I healed my chronic pain, and made a personal commitment to help others access their own potential for healing.

I’m a classically trained homeopath & western herbalist offering one-on-one consultations at my clinic, on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada, where I’ve been in practice since 2004.  I also serve patients all over the world via Skype and telephone.  Visit my appointments page here.

My passion is educating and empowering people in the wisdom of natural medicine through classes and one-on-one consultations.  I teach several classes, workshops and retreats that range from one weekend to a two year herbal program, The Alchemy of Herbal Medicine.  I’m a guest teacher at schools, conferences and symposiums throughout North America and further abroad. In addition to teaching and practicing herbal medicine and homeopathy, I also teach tools for living a fulfilled and vital life. These teachings are drawn from mystical earth-based traditions.
