This practice is centered on providing specific wellness interventions for clients, based on their unique needs, abilities, and socio-economic means. Its work is also guided by the need for community-based initiatives, which integrate traditional knowledge, to support health equity. As an extension of this practice, it is my goal to use urban agriculture and clinical herbalism in the pursuit of social and ecological justice.
I am dedicated to supporting holistic health: both for individual bodies and for communities as a whole, by providing equitable access to plant medicine, and educational resources pertaining to it, for all. Therefore, this practice operates on a sliding pay scale. It is my hope that through plant medicine we can help communities to build their own capacity for self-care, and in doing so, enable people to exercise control over their own health and well-being.
"In health there is freedom.
Health is the first of all liberties."
