My direct time spent in nature, learning earth based skills, and listening to the wisdom of my mentors and community has shaped me the most. I am devoted to live in a way that respects all that has come before me, and all that will come after me.
The inherited, individual, collective and cultural history and wisdom we carry informs all that I do and pursue.
Our present paradigms of social inequity, unjust systems, and dramatic environmental changes we are currently experiencing undoubtedly impact our emotional wellbeing and physiological state. No one and no thing exists in isolation.
It is my hope to offer you a space for cultivating calm and clarity, while exploring resources for maintaining grace and grounding within an ever evolving world.
I hold a BA in Psychology and English Literature from the University of Connecticut, and have received certification from The Institute of Sustainable Health and Nutrition.
My herbal trainings and apprenticeships began in 2014. I have apprenticed under wild food foragers in the culinary industry, and have been under the direct guidance of Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs, Susan Clements of Earth and Ocean Herbals, and Melanie Scofield, Steve Byers, and Jillian Hyllantree Twisla of Earthwalk School of Herbal Traditions.
Karyn Sanders & Sarah Holmes of Blue Otter School, Kay Parent RH in Newport, RI and 7song of Northeast School of Botanical Medicine have also been teachers that have profoundly shaped my path.
I am currently studying massage therapy and am reiki level II attuned. Here I bring awareness to the power of therapeutic and intentional touch; the remembrance of the body as electric and therefore capable of emitting and receiving energy. Through my hands I listen to subtleties, sensing movement and shifts within the fascia, bones and tissues. I am a facilitator, creating space for your own inner awareness to hear your body's story. In this modality we can guide the channels of energy to restore, clear, and restructure.
