Please download, read and sign page 3 of this care agreement and bring to your first session.
I offer these healing services at both my Asheville office (Family to Family) and at my home office sometimes around a special consecrated fire. If needed, I can treat people in their home or the hospital.
What Happens During a Treatment?
Your initial intake visit is 1 ½ – 2 hours. During this visit I listen to you share about your health, family, childhood, emotional life and any concerns. This includes a physical assessment based on five element Chinese medicine. Treatment with the plants is not done during this initial traditional assessment, although this initial intake is often a therapeutic experience. During this session, I may have a trained scribe taking notes for me during your intake, so that I can be fully present. All information that is shared is kept strictly confidential.
After the initial visit, I will design a treatment plan. Treatments last up to an hour and include time for talking and listening followed by treatment with plant spirits which I call upon and offer through hands on healing or song. During treatment sessions and afterwards, you may experience emotional release, memories, images, sensations or just a feeling of deep rest and relaxation.
Treatment intervals are determined individually and we’ll discuss that in person. Treatments usually begin weekly or every other week and eventually stretch out to monthly and then seasonally over the course of a year as balance and harmony last for longer periods of time.
It is ideal to commit to a full year of treatment, cycling through all the seasons, to receive the most benefit. After this, some people continue receiving PSM ongoing or seasonally for generalized health and well being or periodic treatment during transitions or challenges.
Sometimes when I am looking into what a person needs, it becomes clearer that deeper shamanic healing is needed.
Please do not wear any scented lotion, oils, perfumes or make up to any of your healing sessions. Artificial scents, odors and colors can interfere with evaluation and treatment. While you are receiving plant spirit medicine, I request that you hold off from receiving other energetic treatments such as Reiki, acupuncture, Bach flower remedies, unless we come to a decision together that additional therapeutics may be beneficial as part of your treatment plan.
If you use drugs or alcohol – please refrain at least 48 hours before and after treatment. Also discuss this with me during your first appointment so that we can create some agreements around these habits to ensure treatment with the plant spirits is as effective as possible.
While I naturally bring my experience as a physician to my practice of plant spirit medicine, I do not offer “physician medical services” at the same time I am offering you plant spirit medicine. If you have a specific medical need that you would like to be addressed, please schedule a separate medical appointment with me.
Scheduling and Fees
When possible, schedule your appointments in advance as my schedule books quickly.
If you are unable to keep your appointment or need to reschedule, please let me know as soon as possible. Unless there is a true emergency, missed appointments are billed in full, if not cancelled within 48 hours.
The initial intake is $225 and follow up treatments are $125, unless other arrangements are made. Payment is expected at the time of service by cash or check.
Once in a while a concern may arise that you feel needs attention earlier than your next visit. Please do not hesitate to contact me if this occurs. If you have any concerns about Plant Spirit Medicine or the services you receive, please feel free to talk about it with me.
