Are you a dedicated herbal student, ready to expand your herbal knowledge?

Are you struggling to build your herbal business? 

My mentorship program can increase your confidence in using herbs and provide practical ways to grow your herbal business. 

How I grew through an herbal mentorship. 

For several years I was very frustrated in my herbal studies. Don't get me wrong, I love to learn and for the past ten years I had been focused on learning all that I could about herbs, holistic health and the human body. 

But no matter how many classes I took, something was missing. What I really wanted was to help people with their chronic health problems using herbs and other natural therapies. But most of the information I needed to know wasn't found in broad course topics and group classes. What I really needed was one-on-one help with my own case studies so that I could see how herbs work in the real world. 

  • How do you know how to figure out an individual's dosage? 
  • How do you create a personalized plan that gets results but isn't overwhelming? 
  • When do you know the plan is working or isn't working? 
  • When do you change the plan? 
  • How do you treat the root of somebody's problem rather than use herbs to treat symptoms? 

So while book learning and classroom learning had been extremely valuable, I really needed to move beyond theory or what herbs look like on paper and see how they work for people. 

Amidst this time of frustration I was incredibly lucky to find KP Khalsa. I really liked his style and his straightforward demeanor. He became my mentor and I worked with him frequently over a three-year time period. I still schedule sessions with him when I am working with a particularly difficult case and want his decades of expertise. 

It was really through my mentorship that I began to thrive as an herbalist. My ability to work with complicated cases increased dramatically and, with it, my confidence as an herbalist soared. 

I created this mentorship program because I love working with enthusiastic herbal students and I want to help people make the same transitions that I did. The more knowledgeable and confident practicing herbalists we have out there the better! 

Would you benefit from an herbal mentorship? 

Are you an enthusiastic herbalist? 

Do you want personalized guidance to dramatically move you towards your goals?

 Do you need help with focusing your energy to more quickly reach your goals?

I work with inspired and self-motivated herbal students who want to move their herbal education beyond book work and into hands-on experience. I am especially interested in working with people who want to build a long-term mentoring relationship. 

A mentorship is a great adjunct to your own self-directed studies, or as a complement to a long distance herbal course you are taking. Throughout the mentorship program we work together to accelerate your growth in your herbal studies. 

What are the areas covered in an herbal mentorship? 

This mentorship program offers you the opportunity to completely create our areas of focus. This means you learn exactly what you want to learn! Here are some examples of areas that current mentorship students are working on. 

1. Case Studies
Our time together is a perfect opportunity for you to present difficult or new case studies that you are working on. Case studies give you real life examples of seeing herbs in practice and can also highlight new areas of study. (Once accepted to the herbal mentorship you will receive a packet outlining how I like to do case studies. You are welcome, however, to do them in whatever way serves you.) 

2. Questions and clarifications
As you go through your day, I encourage you to write down your herbal questions so that we can go over them together. I will either have that information for you immediately, or point you to the resource that will answer your question. 

3. Needing accountability?
We now have a plethora of long distance herbal schools that offer wonderful herbal education. However, I repeatedly find people who sign up for a long distance program but have difficulty completing the coursework. A regular mentorship time with me offers a space to create study habits and be held accountable for coursework goals.

4. Time Management Skills
One issue that comes up for people in the mentorship program is not having enough time in the day to do everything they want. I am also quite busy and have spent a lot of time studying time management skills so that I can get the most out of my day. Many of the mentorship participants have really benefited learning ways to get more done in an easier way!

5. Help starting an herbal practice
I've successfully started two herbal practices and have learned a lot along the way. If you are wanting to start an herbal practice and would like support in that process, a mentorship is a great way to learn that information.

6. Internet Marketing for Herbalists
I make most of my income from the digital world and have extensive experience creating ebooks, presenting webinars, blogging, website building, and successful social media strategies. I love working with herbalists to help them create a successful business.
