IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL CONSULTS

 

Do you have questions you would like a midwife to answer? Do you want a second (or third) opinion? Do you live far away, but value my professional input? Do you need a general or specific health consultation? Are you struggling with some of life's bigger questions?

 

I am a traditional community midwife of over two decades, folk & clinical herbalist, inclusive sex & sexuality education teacher, secular chaplain, former substance use & victim survivor peer-counsellor, social & health advocate, and unschooling parent of two ('03 & '16). I identify as queer, trans nonbinary, disabled, autistic, Romani, & Mizrahi. I am queer-centered, fat & body positive, sex (kink & sex-worker) positive, and my spiritual life is informed by animism, secular Judaism, Buddhism thought, the seasons, and my ancestors.

You are here because you want to talk about what is on your mind. Let us schedule time together in person or virtually to address your needs.

We can meet virtually or in person. Meeting face to face allows me to employ more tools for gathering data when appropriate (for health & herbal consults), like taking vitals (blood pressure, temperature, etc.), simple tests (urinalysis, blood glucose, etc.), and basic exams (skin, nails, etc.).

In person consultations are typically done at the client’s home. Meeting at an alternative location, like a friend’s home, library, coffeeshop, etc. can also be arranged.

 

We can meet virtually via Zoom, Skype, or Google. While virtual visits are not the same quality as face-to-face visits and limit my ability to get a complete story in some cases, they are definitely still valuable when speaking on matters of the heart & spirit, in explaining & affirming symptoms, suggesting helpful diet/exercise/lifestyle adjustments, and educating clients in various other ways.

Before each virtual visit, if applicable, you will answer some questions regarding your general health, about specific concerns/complaints you have, or about what is keeping you up at night. When applicable/depending on the nature of the visit, visits are followed up by an email (within 24 hours of the end of the visit) with my notes taken during the visit, links to additional information/resources as available, and any necessary care plans/suggestions explained. Our time together in person or virtually allows me to gather information to then make the best recommendations possible based on that information.
