Herbal Consultations

Schedule with Ember

I recommend a customized holistic herbal protocol, so you can enhance your capacity and resiliency to do more of what you love.

During a comprehensive 1.5 hour initial consultation, we will discuss in depth your health issues and body system functions based on your priorities and goals. I strive to treat you with complete respect, and to create a non-judgmental and compassionate healing space. My primary role is to educate you about herbs, food and lifestyle habits to empower you to work towards your healing goals.

As a holistic Clinical Herbalist, I view you as having the innate ability to heal and your body systems as being interconnected. In my practice I draw on knowledge from Western Herbalism traditions, assessment tools from Classical Chinese Medicine, scientific research and physiology to craft custom herbal formulations based on your goals, specific constitution and symptom presentation.

I can work with you on any health issue or imbalance, acute or chronic. I have interest and experience working with people experiencing cancer, diabetes, digestive issues, auto-immunity, chronic pain, endocrine/hormonal imbalances, menstrual irregularities, injury recovery, sleep issues, mood/emotional imbalances, as well as fertility autonomy, trans health, and more. I specifically aim to provide empowering care to trans and gender-non binary clients.

I offer custom herbal formulations to support your healing process. After the first appointment, I recommend follow-up consultations every 4-8 weeks to see how the herbs are working for you, and to make changes if necessary.

What to Expect:

The comprehensive initial consultation is 90 minutes, where we discuss in depth your health issues and overall body system functions based on your priorities and goals. Within one week of your initial consultation, I will email you with detailed custom recommendations and can offer a 15 minute phone call or up to 2 emails to answer any questions you may have about the recommendations.

It is important to have patience and diligence for the herbs to be most effective. Formulas often need to be altered over time as symptoms and conditions change. I recommend follow-up consultations every 4-8 weeks to see how the herbs are working for you, and to make changes if necessary.

Cost:

Comprehensive initial consultation 1.5 hrs

$150 +hst regular price / $50-100 +hst sliding scale for BIPOC* / $20-100 +hst sliding scale with student observers present (seasonal availability)

Follow-up consultation 45-50 mins

$40-80 +hst sliding scale regular price / $25-50 +hst sliding scale for BIPOC* / $10-$50 +hst sliding scale with student observers present (seasonal availability)

This includes time needed for research, formulating and dispensing of the herbal medicines. Herbs are not included in this price. The herbs I recommend are available to purchase through my apothecary to clients in Canada.

Sliding scale (down to at-cost) pricing is offered for People of Color and Indigenous folks who would otherwise be unable to access herbal consultations.This is in a spirit of reparations, in an effort to create more accessible spaces for people who experience systemic oppression.

If the cost or payment options don't work for you, please email me to discuss other flexible payment options.

Please note: I neither diagnose nor directly treat diseases, rather I can make assessments of imbalances based on patterns and physiologic presentation, and support the healing of your body, mind and spirit. I carefully assess all interactions that herbs may have with pharmaceutical medications, and I can work with other health care practitioners if desired.
