The other side of any problem, no matter how big or small, is the opportunity to ally with it as a vehicle for your own evolution.

Herbal Consultations

An herbal consultation is an opportunity to sit down in a relaxed and supportive environment and have an in-depth conversation about your health concerns.  Herbalism is a holistic practice and during a consultation we’ll discuss much more than just the herbs themselves. We’ll explore food as medicine and ways to nourish and support you through kitchen medicine. We’ll talk about what shifts can be made in your life and identify where your edges are in terms of what might be holding you back from healing. These same edges are fertile ground for healing and we’ll think about how we can work with them as a force for positive change. And no consultation is complete without discussing the herbs most suited for you, your personal constitution, and condition- your herbal allies. You’ll receive your own personalized herbal formula (often a tea, tincture and/or flower essence).  A follow-up visit 2-3 weeks after the initial consult is strongly recommended, and I advise that we work together on your health over a period of 3-6 months for optimal results.

Community Herbal Clinic

I believe that access to affordable, holistic healthcare is a right, not a privilege. At the Greenfield Community Herbal Clinic I strive to offer my services at a rate that is accessible to all. At the clinic I offer the same services I provide by appointment, but at a reduced rate. Please pay whatever is comfortable for you on the scale.  Our sliding scale is intentionally wide- folks who are able to pay on the high end of the scale help subsidize those who cannot, and together we create a mutually supported community of healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of conditions can herbal medicine address?
While herbs are not a swap for pharmaceuticals, conditions commonly addressed include anxiety, stress, depression, anger, frustration, insomnia, trauma, pain, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, menstrual irregularity and issues, low immunity, colds, flus, coughs, infections, respiratory conditions, digestive issues, skin problems, heart and circulatory conditions, maintaining vibrant health, pregnancy, postpartum, fertility, and much much more! I also often work with children.  Herbal medicine is also a fantastic form of preventative healthcare and can be utilized to maintain vibrant health.

Is herbal medicine right for me?
Whether you are blessed with good health and would like to help keep it that way, or are struggling with long-term health issues- herbal medicine can help.  Herbalists see the body and its conditions as much more than the sum of its individual parts, and rather a vital, intelligent system that can be brought into balance via the synergy of food as medicine, the herbs, and lifestyle shifts. In this system the client is empowered to be their own healer rather than the “doctor as healer” paradigm found in allopathic medicine and the herbalist serves as a support and guide. I love working with all people, regardless of their age, race, gender identity, sexuality, or otherwise!  

Do you have areas of specialty?
While I work with a wide range of conditions I especially support many folks during the child-bearing year from conception, pregnancy, birth, and into postpartum. I also have lots of experience with children, being the mother two!

Is it safe? What if I'm taking pharmaceutical medications?
Yes! Herbal medicine is very safe, especially when you are working with a skilled and trained herbalist.  Herbs may be safely used alongside pharmaceuticals when they are chose appropriately based on potential herb-drug interactions, and there are many herbs that do not negatively interact with any medications at all. I have experience working with folks on a wide variety of medications.

“Working with Jade has been so comforting. I look forward to our appointments, because I feel supported in my decisions and where I am in life. I can come with a question or nothing specific in mind. We talk about what works for me and what doesn’t. She listens to me and I feel heard. I leave with some great ideas to try out including recipes, book suggestions and new herbs to explore.”
— A.B.
Dear Jade,

I was just thinking of the year in review and realizing I very much want to thank you again for the herbal treatment you gave to my husband. We really went from not knowing if on any given night hours of sleep would be lost, to simply never having to be woken to panic attacks. Of course, since we are married, you helped me almost as much as you helped him! If I had helped someone that much just once in my life I would be so full of well being! I hope I can help explain to others the value of your work. I only hoped for some relief, and never would have guessed the problem would be solved that had affected us for so many years and had recently gotten so much worse. I feel that a terrible problem that everyone seemed to dismiss as merely psychological, you showed to be physical in nature. You are very good at what you do.
— Love, B.K.
