Community Care Consultations

 

Seeking 1:1 herbal support? Consider a care consult!

 

 

NEW CLIENT UPDATE (Jan 2024)

 

Now inviting queer/trans clients for support with Long-Covid

and post-covid health impacts,

alongside ongoing support for general mental & emotional well being.

COVID Care Sessions

COVID Care Sessions are a new offering for community that began in 2024. In these sessions, we make space to talk about COVID as it has shaped our bodies, lives and communities.

These sessions are a space to discuss both the physical health impacts of COVID, LongC and Post-C issues, as well as the emotional aspects of living in an ongoing pandemic.  If welcomed, these sessions may include herbal or dietary recommendations, as well as practices and invitations for heart tending, grief tending, boundary and integrity work, balancing connection with dignity, embodying our values even under pressure, ritual to connect with the sacred, and more.

These are spaces to share what is hard about your personal covid experiences set against the backdrop of societal covid experiences with an emphatic witness. This is a space to ask questions, and work through what is feeling hard for you.  This is a space to connect – with deep self, with one another, with plants and to remember that we are not in this alone.

 

 

Herbal Care Consultations

What do herbal care consults entail?

These are more formal clinical based sessions that include an intake form, at least two sessions (one initial consult, and one follow up) and herbal protocol recommendations.

Initial consultations are offered on a sliding scale price range, and typically last two hours. During this initial meeting, we will together go over your intake form, your health history, and what kind of support you desire. This allows me to get a sense of where you are at, what kinds of things you are experiencing, and where support might be needed. Based on this, I will make recommendations for herbal, lifestyle, nutritional, and other support as needed.

After our time together, I will plan, research, and engage in intuitive ritual before sharing a potential path forward with you. I will send recommendations over the following week.  I welcome your input, suggestions, questions and feedback on all proposed care plans.

Follow up appointments (after our initial consultation and protocol recommendations) are offered on a sliding scale as well, and can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 45 minutes.

 

Whichever format you choose, I welcome collaboration with you for your health and healing.

 

TIMELINE

Working together longer term allows for deeper healing, and if it feels right to both of us, one offer is that we meet biweekly for the first few sessions, and then switch to monthly sessions together. However, single sessions or less frequent sessions are also possible!

a note on collaborative partnerships:

It’s important to me that all care relationships are collaborative and feel supportive to both of us if we decide to move forward together. it is essential that each person is at choice with how we move forward in order to build practitioner-client relationships without hierarchy. if this sounds like something you resonate with, lets discuss working together!

STAYING CONNECTED

 

My practice is slow, intentional and intimate. I’m not on social media so much; I do occasionally share things through my instagram, @hawthornandyew. However, the best way to stay in touch and hear whats new is to sign up for my newsletter HOME/BODY.

You’ll hear from me on a weekly-ish basis, and these notes will contain info on upcoming workshops and programs, new zines, things my friends are working on, and more alongside long form writing about things i’m learning about, feeling about, questioning and embodying. tune in for musings on herbs, relationship with the world, embodying our values, dreaming and moving towards a more just world, and the practices that will can help get us there.
