Frequently Asked Questions
What are your rates?
The initial session is $97.
Since every client’s program is different, I prepare a personalized Program Agreement for everyone I work with and my fee varies depending on the scope of the work. Sliding scale arrangements are available for people who cannot afford my full fee.
Do you accept insurance?
No. Unfortunately, herbal medicine is not reimbursed by any health insurance carriers at this time. If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), it’s possible that our work together might qualify for reimbursement through your plan, but you need to inquire directly with your HSA administrator to find out.
Do you work with people who are on medications?
Yes. Many of my clients take medication that they’ve found very helpful or even life saving, and we structure the herbal work to ensure that all of the herbs we use are safe to take concurrently with their medicines. Other clients have been taking a certain medication for some time and have a desire to be able to discontinue it without any recurrence of their health problems. In these cases, I work to strengthen the body with the knowledge that their doctors will adjust or remove their medicines if/when they are no longer needed. Important: I do not advise clients on their prescription medications. It’s vital that you maintain a good relationship with your prescribing physician and/or your pharmacist.
Do you work with cancer patients?
It depends. Once the cancer is in remission, yes. When his/her oncologist supports adding herbal medicine to the protocol, I might also work with a cancer patient after their medical and surgical treatments are complete. In rare circumstances, I might also work to support mental health in someone with cancer as long as she is receiving separate treatment for the cancer itself.
Do you work with children?
No. I work with adults age 18+
Do you work with men?
Yes! Most of my clients are women, but my practice is open to people of all genders.
I want to get off of a medication I’m currently taking. Can you help with that?
The only person who can legally and safely take you off of a prescription medication is a licensed physician. I never suggest that my clients decrease or discontinue their prescribed medications. Instead, our work will help to bring your body and your lifestyle into a state of balance and vitality while avoiding any possible herb/drug interactions while you’re still taking your prescribed medications. Over time, your health may improve to the point that your doctor decides that you no longer need the medication or that you can reduce your dose. When that happens, you and your doctor can adjust your medicine as needed.
