I have been in general practice as a medical herbalist for over 25 years and for the past 10 years I have specialized in helping patients navigate cancer treatment. I trained in the 4 year program under Hein Zeylstra in England in the 1980’s and after 15 years in practice I went back to take my Master’s degree in herbal medicine at the University of Wales. I practice western holistic medical herbalism, integrating natural medicines and nutrition into conventional health care systems. I work with around 10 – 12 patients a week, some in person and some by telephone and email. I also teach herbal medicine and the concept of food as medicine. I have an extensive dispensary of tinctures, creams, volatile oils and teas, and herb gardens where a lot of the herbs are grown and harvested. I have a background in product development, marketing, retailing, quality control and good manufacturing practices.
- My hourly rate for business coaching and for consulting with other practitioners on their cases, is usually $100. However, for AHG members I am available at $50 for clinical or business coaching. Sorry, no trade options.
