Bear with me as I list a number of steps that helps me to screen out non-serious people.

  1. Contact me via the form on the Contact Page, with your name, email, phone number, a brief description of the main complaint, and the best time to call back. I’ll then call (within 24-48 hrs.) so we can discuss the issue and determine if the problem can be address with herbal medicine. Aside from the initial contact, it’s important that we communicate by phone (voice). Please – no emails or texts.
  2. Once it’s established that I may in fact be of help (I’m honest about this and will offer a referral if I think my services will be inadequate), we can proceed.
  3. For new clients (first appointment only) a deposit of $80.00 needs to be first mailed (or paypal) to me. I find that this deposit process virtually eliminates no-shows.
  4. Once I receive the deposit, I’ll call to set up an appointment (9am-4pm M-F) and send (email) the intake forms and directions to the office (TBA, Tucson, AZ).
  5. I do not internet/skype consult. Consultations need to be in-person.
  6. Consultations are by appointment only.

A couple of things to keep in mind

I’ve been a practicing herbalist since the 90s. This span of experience has has allowed me explore and discard many herbal elements that are simply ineffectual or distracting (of which there are many). I have a no-nonsense view of the subject; meaning, my therapeutic evaluations are based on western scientific interpretations of illness and health. To depart from these rational principles, I believe does the client (and herbal field) a disservice.


If an appointment is missed, with the exception of emergencies, without rescheduling or canceling 24 hours before the appointment, a cancellation fee of $40.00 will be charged for an initial appointment, or $20.00 for follow-up appointments. If an appointment needs to be reschedule (within the 24-hour period) and there is an available opening that same day, then the cancellation fee will be waived. (I’m respectful of your time, please be respectful of mine)
