rowan is a community herbalist, and they are committed to supporting queer and trans folks health & healing through Herbal Wellness Consultations. These consultations may include herbal remedies, nutrition information, movement suggestions, empathetic listening, spaceholding, and/or ritual based on client and practitioner collaboration.
What Do Herbal Wellness Consultations entail?
Initial consultations are offered on a sliding scale, from $30 – $100, 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 via email within three business days. 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 from $30 – $100, and can last anywhere from a half hour to two hours.
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!
If you feel like these services would help you but you cannot afford to pay, please reach out to talk about it.
*Note: During COVID-19, consults will take place via video conferencing. Outdoor socially distanced meetings for local clients are also possible.
To schedule a Wellness Consult, or a free 20 minute Connection call to discuss collaborating in your healing journey, you can reach me via email at: rowan walker (at) protonmail (dot) com.
I have an home herbal apothecary of tinctures and offer them to clients on a sliding scale as well. Tinctures are also offered on a sliding scale, $5 – $15 per ounce. You are welcome to purchase these from me, but you are also welcome to simply take the recommendations and find supplies elsewhere. Western NC where I am currently based has a wonderful herbal community with lots of folks offering plant creations. I also sell plant medicine, including tinctures, at local area markets.
rowan completed their Community Herbalist training in the vitalist tradition of so called “western herbalism” at the CommonWealth Center for Holistic Herbalism in 2016. With a love for learning and books, they have continued their education through self study ever since. To bolster their capacity to support clients, rowan has studied trauma aware care provision, mediation, facilitation, and tools for supporting people through crisis and bereavement. Additionally, they have taken multiple workshops on supporting trans and gender divergent clients from both an herbalist and a doula’s perspective. Believing that gender affirming care is essential, they now teach these workshops in to wellness practitioners, in herbalism schools and for doula agencies.
