Passionately Practicing Holistic Herbalism
I consider myself an Impassioned Herbalist. I truly believe in the healing qualities of medicinal herbs, holistic nutrition, practice and the innate power that each of us possesses to heal ourselves. I also believe in the power of food as medicine and the fact that we create our own realities thru our words, thoughts and actions. I am passionate about eating well and growing amazing food & herbs.
More importantly, I take care of my spirit by enjoying the little things in life and always pursue my own journey of self discovery.
As an Herbalist, I neither diagnose, name, nor treat disease
but recommend herbs, dietary, lifestyle and other modalities to
help the body & mind synergize to achieve optimal physical & emotional well-being. My role as the Herbalist in this healing process is to utilize my skills in identifying patterns of disharmony and to most importantly, consider the client as a whole person.
As each person is a unique individual, I treat my clients in that way. I do not work with a “universal” remedy for an ailment. Instead, my client's recommendations are formulated individually, giving consideration to the constitution of my client as well as a culmination of findings revealed thru various diagnostic methods.
As an Herbalist, I agree to treat my client as an individually unique human being. The client agrees to comply with my educated suggestions of lifestyle & diet modifications as well as supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins in order to cultivate an increased state of balance and health.
Over the years, I have explored many methods of healing. My current clinical skill sets include diagnostic methods from Traditional Chinese Medicine, therapies of Tui Na & Moxibustion and Yoga. Remedies from the traditions of Ayurvedic, Western & Chinese herbal medicine may be applicable to an individual's case.
Essentially, I am an herbalist advocate to my client on his/her unique journey toward re-balancing health. We agree to hold high the intention of optimizing the body's self-healing capabilities. As the client is the most essential part of his/her self reliant healing, it is of utmost importance to take the responsibility of following the program that is created especially for them.

In 1996 I launched Kaleidoscope Naturals. My entrepreneurial spirit and diligence led me on a journey of producing high quality potions. Organic Hemp and Herbal Healing Salve continues to be Kaleidoscope Naturals' signature product and best seller with loyal customers worldwide.
Since 2009 I have been establishing perennial gardens on our property in Mendocino, CA. We have a minimum of 50 medicinal herbs (native, planted or propagated) and the gardens continue to grow. Garlic & Lavender are 2 favorites!
While pursuing my passions of organic gardening, formulating and testing new herbal products, practicing yoga & continually gaining more knowledge, I also completed a 200hr. Yoga Teacher Training, a Taiji Tuina course, an apprenticeship at our Community Acupuncture Clinic and four 52 hour seminars with the East West School of Herbology. I am so full of Gratitude for all of my teachers on this incredible journey of life!
