Natural transition

I am a nonbinary individual, and as such, I want to fall somewhere in the middle of male and female with my gender expression. This can be problematic for the medical system, as it views transition as either "ftm" or "mtf."

Likewise, seeking HRT or other gender affirming care can be expensive and inaccessible.

I'm here to provide you with the information you need to get around these barriers, naturally.

When you come to me as a client, rest assured you will receive:

  • Thorough research into the concerns you have
  • An empathetic listener
  • Fast turnaround of information (such as links, articles) or anything else you might need

With my help, you'll find more euphoria in yourself and the peace of mind that comes with using methods born from Mother Earth.

Please book only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays!

When we are trying to grow a plant, it is important that the soil is moist and properly fertilized. When the roots are happy, the plant will flourish, producing fruit, flowers, oxygen and life! We can take the same approach to our own bodies. If our soil or living environment isn't habitable or the nutrients we are feeding ourselves aren't nourishing enough, we grow weak, unstable and sometimes it can lead to chronic conditions and disease.

This consultation will walk us through your medical history, diet, exercise and daily life so I can determine what areas we need to focus on. We will discover what kind of constitution you have as to identify which herbs and esscenses are the best fit for your body. We will then come up with a plan on how to overcome the issue or issues at hand.
