Nurturing the Nature Within
I facilitate healing work through astrology, herbalism and food as medicine.
In this space I share astrological teachings, plant wisdom and healing recipes. Complementary signatures show up in people, plants and planets. I believe that recognition of these themes and patterns holds the key for coming into balance and ultimately health. I am based in the Bay Area.
I work in an herbal apothecary and offer private astrological chart consultations. I offer walk-in astrology hours on Fridays at Twisted Thistle Apothecary in San Francisco from 12-6pm. I emphasize the physiological, mental and spiritual components to wellness.
My university studies were devoted to psychology and philosophy. The tension between psychology as an extension of empirical science and psychology as a humanistic understanding of ourselves as parts of nature was a rift I've always longed to bridge. Astrology provides a framework that views us in the bigger scheme of nature. I do not use astrology to diagnose or pigeon hole, rather help reveal how we fit into the larger whole.
I spent six years working in psychology academia, gleaning much from my experience in addiction treatment research at the University of Pennsylvania. I went on to study with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism. I’ve completed a year long astro-herbalism program with Sajah Popham. I’ve mentored with Gemini Brett, a fellow astrologer who emphasizes the re-naturing of astrology. I’m currently completing certification through the Organization for Professional Astrology and have a special interest in using astrology and nature’s gifts to overcome blockages and self sabotaging behaviors.
