After years of formal study and practice, I am excited to announce that I have been accepted as a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild, the governing body of clinical herbalists in the United States. I am proud to be a practicing herbalist, where to heal is to honor the vitalistic principle of supporting the body’s innate healing capability. My practice is committed to respecting the ancient wisdom of traditional medicine men and women, as well as learning from contemporary research methods. As a professional clinical herbalist, I look forward to advancing the profession of herbal medicine with empirical research, while remaining grounded in the truth; that herbal medicine is the people’s medicine, an accessible, living body of healing wisdom.

As some of you are aware, I have joined the medical practice at the Center for Integrative Medicine in Chattanooga, TN. I am excited to be practicing whole-body healthcare, utilizing the gentle, yet marvelously profound, healing power of medicinal plants, as well as offering counseling as a clinical social worker for helping people to cope and adjust to the ten thousand stressful things in our lives.
Depending on what clients choose to focus on, I either offer counseling and herbal consultations separately, or as a combined wellness counsult.
Collaborative providers at CIM include a nutritionist, acupuncturist, counselors, two physicians, a physician’s assistant, and a full medspa with massage therapists and estheticians, who together provide patients with comprehensive, individualized care to meet specific needs.
For my Georgia or out-of-town clients, I can continue to be your herbalist through offering consults via phone or skype. Please visit my Wellness Consultations page for information on scheduling and appropriate forms.
