Holistic Herbal and Health Consultations
What is Holistic Herbalism?
Holistic herbalism is a clinical form of holistic therapy in which clients work with a trained herbal practitioner, to develop custom-designed protocols, aimed at improving their overall health and to address specific conditions, illnesses, and diseases.
Treatment suggestions can vary and are based on a holistic view of the person, including their constitution, unique circumstances, and goals. Suggestions may include herbal remedies, diet, lifestyle modifications, education and more. All suggestions are non-invasive, progress over time, and complement allopathic and alternative healing modalities.
How Holistic Herbalism Works
The human system is designed to heal itself. Our bodies are incredible, intelligent beings, even before adding the mind, emotions and spiritual components that make us human. The philosophy of holistic herbalism is to gently support the body’s natural healing process. This may look very different for each person because everyone unique. Each of us has our own history, symptoms, lifestyle, and values.
There are many possible causes for any problem. Take for example a headache. A headache could be caused by hitting your head, having digestive upset, food allergies, stress, sinus issues and more. Rather than offer an herbal “aspirin” to relieve the pain, a clinical herbalist will look for the cause. When the cause is addressed, the symptom is often relieved. This is true even when the cause and symptom are seemingly unrelated.
Whether you’ve come down with a cold or flu, want a new strategy for managing a chronic illness, or are looking for more vitality in your life, we’re here to support you with caring and educational consultations in person, by phone and online.
Herbalists are not doctors – but as experienced, specially trained clinical practitioners, holistic herbalists work to support healing, and revitalize the system while reinforcing and complementing other care plans.

Booking a Consultation
If you are new to Wonderment Gardens, let’s get acquainted with a discovery session. This allows time to ask any questions you have and share what brings you our way.
You may reach me by using the e-mail contact form to set a phone appointment or by booking a consultation or free discovery session using my online scheduler.
What To Expect.
Prior to our meeting, you will receive intake forms via e-mail. Please fill out and return them before or at the time of our consultation. If we are meeting in-person, the intake forms may be filled out at the time of our consultation.
Our first appointment will generally last between 60 and 90 minutes. This allows for plenty of time to get to know each other, talk about your specific situation, get a feeling for your needs and goals, and to develop a plan. A follow up appointment is required between 1 and 3 weeks later to ensure the plan is working and to make any refinements necessary based on your feedback and the herbalists’ observations.
Future appointments are based upon the support and guidance you may need, and your progression toward your goals.
I look forward to working with you!
