As a holistic health practitioner with training in Western Herbalism and Ayurveda, I work with you to directly address troublesome symptoms as well as to identify imbalances that lead to those symptoms.
We utilize medicinal plants, diet modifications, and lifestyle recommendations as our main tools in supporting your health goals. For those who are interested, I may also recommend breathing practices and meditation techniques.
My goal is to help you improve your quality of life in a tangible, measurable fashion. I deeply value your health priorities and your self-knowledge, and I am always focused on cultivating a relationship based on mutual trust.
I welcome folks with a wide range of specific concerns, those looking for small or big steps to take, and those just wanting general health support.
I also offer peer support for those in mental health, addictions, or trauma recovery. Click here to learn more.
You can expect warmth and acceptance no matter where you are coming from or what sort of choices you make in your life, your diet, or otherwise. It is my philosophy to meet people where they are without judgement, and I place deep value in the ethic of harm reduction. I strive to always maintain an anti-oppression and trauma informed perspective. I heartily welcome LGBTQIA+ folks and people of color.
CONSULT WITH SELENA
Consultations can occur either in-person or over the phone.
All consultations include:
- an in-person or phone evaluation
- personalized herbal recommendations
- a detailed write-up including all recommended recipes and instructions for preparing your own formulas, and referrals for obtaining your herbs
- a few brief check-ins as needed via phone or email to ensure your protocol is proceeding smoothly.
Should you choose to buy your herbs from me, I can provide your herbs and formulas for an additional charge, priced at fair market rates.
I will work with you to ensure all recommendations are as affordable and convenient as possible to fit your lifestyle.
Brief Initial Consultation (30-45 minutes): $30-50
I offer Brief Initial Consults for those seeking support for symptomatic relief of acute issues, such as simple respiratory concerns, injuries, symptomatic support for sleep or anxious feelings, simple digestive concerns, etc. This may also be appropriate for those with chronic concerns who prefer a shorter consultation.
In Depth Initial Consultation (1.5 hours): $60-100
I offer In Depth Initial Consults for those seeking support for situations that may require a more lengthy conversation, such as chronic health problems, auto-immune conditions, hormonal imbalances, chronic inflammatory conditions, etc.
Follow-Up Consultation (30-45 minutes): $30-50
Follow-Up Consults are generally recommended to ensure your protocol is proceeding smoothly and to evaluate progress, and typically take place between 1 and 6 weeks after our initial consultation, depending on your specific health concerns and situation.
WHAT IS A SLIDING SCALE?
In order to make traditional, holistic medicine available to under-served communities, fees for my services are assessed on a sliding scale.
This means you are invited to pay what you can afford – all payment offerings will be gratefully received. I welcome trades! No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Any donations above and beyond the sliding scale are welcomed and will support low-income people in accessing these services.
