I practice under a healing justice framework*, & am committed to decolonization. As someone with white settler ancestry & who identifies as a non-binary queer witch, this means uplifting healers who are femme, queer & trans, people of color, & indigenous, as well as to center these communities in my practice. I strive to bring my whole self to my clients & meet them where they are at, respecting their decisons, honoring their intuition, & working to co-create a container for them to see themselves as the powerful healers & magic-makers they are. I strive to bring an ethic of communal care to my practice, recognizing that we cannot "self care" our traumas away, & that we do not survive alone. I would be happy to discuss my framework and approach further with you so please do not hesitate to contact me!

My people are mostly of european ancestry: acadian cajun, spanish, bohemian, roma, norwegian, & german farmers, caretakers, blacksmiths, merchants, & nurses. I am a genderqueer, non-binary, femme, southern transplant living in Minneapolis, Minnesota & raised in the Chippewa Valley, occupied Dakota territories.
Aside from operating my business, Sassafras Healing Arts & Consultation since 2012, I am also the Co-Founder & Co-Director of the SPIRAL Collective (Supporting People in Reproduction, Abortion, & Loss), a queer, trans, POC-led & centered Twin Cities-based full spectrum reproductive support community aiming to provide radical, compassionate care in all pregnancy outcomes and experiences with the intention of empowering bodily autonomy. I have provided hormone injections & HIV testing at The Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition since July 2012. I have been providing abortion doula / companion support since 2010. In 2009 I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Gender / Women’s Studies & International Studies from the University of Minnesota Duluth.
I have also completed extensive nursing prerequisite coursework in health sciences, including Cell Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Nutrition, Psychology of Human Development, & "Abnormal" Psychology. The knowledge I've gained in my health sciences classes strengthens & deeps my skills as a practicing herbalist.
In the Fall of 2017, I will be starting the University of Minnesota's Masters of Nursing Program & have already been offered acceptance to the Nurse Midwifery Doctor of Nursing Practice Program starting Fall 2019.

I utilize a sliding scale fee for all of my services. My hope with this approach is that folks who can pay more will pay more and folks who can pay less will pay less and everything will balance itself out. I believe everyone deserves access to the healing they desire & I encourage you to contact me if finances are a barrier to you receiving support from me at any time!
Holler at your witch!
