Intuitive herbalism calls in the spirit of the plants, the ancestors and intuition to guide the healer and the healing toward vitality, awareness and wholeness. With intuitive herbalism, the person seeking healing is the expert of their own health, while the practitioner is the conduit for finding supportive rituals for positive change. Intuitive herbalism incorporates consent culture with informative care, and enables client and practitioner to address their own forms of liberation through relationship to divination, nature and intention.
A Clinical Herbalist is an educator and partner in healing, encouraging and supporting the health and wellbeing of their clients. Herbalists neither diagnose nor directly treat disease. Rather, we focus on educating you, the client, on how to best enhance your body’s innate healing capacity. Our intent is to help you achieve the highest state of health consistent with your own goals. We will consider your individual constitution and nature and recommend the most appropriate herbal, dietary and lifestyle changes specifically for you. Our goal is to serve as part of your healthcare team; we collaborate with a diversity of alternative and conventional modalities as appropriate. - VCIH
:: About Kenzie::
As an intuitive herbalist, organic herb farmer, and magical witch, I, Kenzie, enjoy teaching about the healing properties of medicinal plants for the mind, body and spirit. I also keep bees, dance and identify as a pleasure activist, in love with social justice and spirituality. Centering pleasure and healing of folx on the margins is essential to the liberation of all. As a queer person, I am open to creating access to herbs for people of all ages, genders, colors and faiths. A major part of my herbal practice includes creating customized formula for each client, which can include but is not limited to teas, tinctures, topical remedies, flower essences, smoking blends and glycerins. In my clinical practice, I specialize in regenerative/sexual/reproductive systems, hormonal regulation, auto-immune balance (including Lyme and Leaky Gut), spirituality through ritual, and trauma transformation through herbal and lifestyle support. My clinical practice is currently based in Vermont with the ability to travel. All consultations occur over the phone, zoom and what's app. In the growing season, I do see people outside with COVID19 protocols.
Experience In 2016, I graduated as a clinical herbalist from Vermont Center of Integrative Herbalism, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healthcare resources grounded in Nature. VCIH brings clinical herbalism to community practice through the weaving of science, spirit and grassroots activism. They provide one of the nation’s most extensive clinical training opportunities in herbal medicine, rooted in deep connection with the plants and place. www.vtherbcenter.org

Kind Words from previous farm intern...
I have a much stronger spiritual connection to the plant world. I have been empowered with the knowledge of how plant medicine can benefit society. I use this knowledge every day.

If everyone could have this experience, the world would be a much kinder and peaceful place." - Kristen Maniscalco
