What I Offer - Classes, Workshops, Consultations

One-on-One Holistic Wellness Services
All one-on-one private sessions ~ in person or over the phone ~ are charged at $60 per hour.

This includes all wellness consultationshealing sessions and readings. Classes and workshops are offered separately (see below), though consultations can be highly educational ~ in fact, I hope that they are!

Contact me if you're interested in a private wellness session and I can send you a copy of my Disclosure Statement and an intake form for you to review and complete before we meet. In reviewing my intake you may discover that my approach is not a good fit for you and you always have the option to cancel … and I'd be happy to offer you a referral to another wellness practitioner. This way, waste of time and money is avoided. Or, you can schedule your appointment and we'll complete and explore the intake together.

Also, before meeting, I may request that you keep a diary of everything you ingest for at least 1-week. Everything. Not only have I witnessed enhanced wellness with nothing more than a shift in diet, but keeping this kind of diary demonstrates to me your level of commitment to your own wellness. 

Keep in mind that you may realize benefits from a wellness session even if you are healthy and well. As I have said for years … don't wait to get sick to Be Well.

An initial consultation is typically one to two hours, which includes our shared consult time as well as my time to prepare any formulations for you. Subsequent consultations might be as little 15-minutes to a half an hour ~ rarely more. Timing most often depends on how well you have been paying attention to your wellness and your willingness to share your observations. 

All sessions are By Appointment Only. Phone consultations also available.

Herbal Courses of Study, Learning and Experience
Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness offers herbal studies in a combination of Core Modules, Electives and Apprenticeship, that may be taken as desired or with an objective to complete certification - your choice. Course changes are made to these offerings most every year, though the basic structure remains intact.

All Core Classes are offered in a rotating bi-monthly schedule (twice a month). This means if you miss one, you may catch it in the next cycle. You will begin your studies with the introductory class which will offer you insight into the curriculum as well as my teaching style, and my wellness and herbal perspectives. This is to ensure that this course of study, and the teacher, is a "good fit" for you - before committing to further studies. Once the Introduction class is taken, you may attend all other classes in succession (as scheduled) or in any order that you desire, over as much time as you need.

Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness offers a certificate of completion that is awarded upon fulfillment of required Core and Elective studies as outlined below, including 25 hours of Apprenticeship and demonstration of mastery. Commitment to the certification program is not required and need not hinder you from exploring any of these classes. Your herbal studies may be pursued over time as desired or needed, allowing for flexibility of schedule, commitment and financial considerations.

I've been thinking of finding someone to come and offer some of these types of classes here at the farm. Would you have any interest in doing that? Any thoughts on how we could make it work if you were interested?
