Would you like to know more?

Please contact me or come visit me in my clinic.

I would like to acknowledge and pay my respects to the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugurapul people who are the traditional custodians of the unceded land on which I live and work. I acknowledge all the traditional owners of Country throughout Australia. I acknowledge their continued connection to land, waters and community and pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. I would like to pay my respects to First Nations traditional healers of this country who are still healing their communities today.

Western herbal medicine is a practice that is steeped in colonization so I would like to acknowledge and pay my respects to First Nations healers from all over the world as well as to the enslaved African American healers, who braided seeds into their hair in the hope of a better future. Their knowledge and experience allow me to help people today and my shelves would be much emptier without their contribution. To be an herbalist is to be a link in a chain that stretches back to the dawn of humanity, and whenever I stand outside in my herb garden nurturing medicinal herbs that have been used by humans and woven into our stories for millennia, I am honoured by those who came before me.
