Art and Education + Natural Products Brand Advisor + Individualized Clinical Care

I bring over 25 years of teaching and clinical experience as a student & practitioner of Yoga and Ayurveda. I trained in Eastern and Western herbal medicine with specialty training (primarily with Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt and Monika Haas) in essential oils as medicine. My training utilizes the French system of aromatherapy, which works with essential oils to change challenges of the body + mind + spirit while simultaneously being powerful, aromatic allies. When used correctly, this system can quickly and effectively alter microbial, fungal, and viral patterns that are often hard to treat, such as herpes, shingles, colds, cases of flu, and other respiratory, topical, and airborne infections.

I have a lab in Sonoma County, Ca, where I distill and make herbal medicine with my interns. We steam-distill essential oils and hydrosols in my 50-gallon distillation unit “Bella.” I practice Ayurveda, a system of traditional medicine from southeast Asia known as the Science of Life. I integrate the use of essential oils into my topical care system that I have created for pain, pain management, and skincare challenges such as acne, herpes, eczema, and psoriasis.

I specialize in supporting women (she/her+ they/them) with depression, anxiety, and stress who want to use food, diet, lifestyle, movement, herbs, and aromatherapy as medicine. Recently, I have been working with more fertility support + postpartum women. I am a core faculty at the California School of Herbal Studies, where I’ve been teaching for 23 years. I spent ten years at Bastyr University, where I taught aromatic medicine as essential oils to naturopathic doctors, nurses, and clinical practitioners. I have been teaching and working with children and big people in movement and the healing arts for most of my life.
