I would love to teach a workshop for you, a group of your friends, your organization or school. Here are the workshops I am currently offering.
Transgender 101 for Herbalists I: As healers and health care providers it is our responsibility to be able to offer quality care to all that come our way. Take this cultural competency workshop that teaches you how to be respectful and inclusive to every client, regardless of gender identity. We will go over pronouns, language, transgender history in healthcare, and how to be a good ally.
Trangender 101 for Herbalists II: This builds on the above workshop. We have a focus on specific herbs for transgender and gender-variant folks and contra-indications with medications. We also go over a client case and provide an outlook on how to approach topics out of your comfort zone respectfully.
Moving Through our Mental Health: This class focuses on managing depression, anxiety and mental health through a clinical community herbalist’s perspective. We will discuss food as medicine, supplements and herbal recommendations.
Trauma, PTSD and Healing: In this class, we will go over herbal protocols for long term management and acute care. We will discuss major types of trauma, harm reduction, new trauma vs old trauma, regulating the fight/flight response, and triggers.
Herbalism Support for Healers, Organizers and Social Workers: In this class we will discuss herbs for stress, strategies for burnout, and flower essences for those working against oppression in their daily lives. We will also go over how to use herbal medicine as a resource in your work.
Transgender Prisoner Realities: I work with the Tranzmission Prison Project, an organization that sends books and resources and pen-pals to LGBTQQIA prisoners. Come learn about the prison industrial complex and how identity forms the experience for folks in the gay community.
I also teach various plant walks and beginner herbalism classes including but not limited to Salve Making, Herbal Medicine Making 101, and Herbs for Stress Relief.
I have taught workshops at The Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine, The Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, The North American Institute of Medical Herbalism, The Organic Growers School, UNCA, Warren Wilson College, and many others.
Please contact me if you would like to see a workshop be offered.
