Lisa is an herbalist and spaceship builder. She specializes in guiding highly sensitive people to nurture their relationship with themselves through the sacred practice of holistic herbalism for deep and lasting wellness. As a scientist, she builds a personalized strategy for rebuilding health from the foundation up. Lisa most enjoys working with people who are hearing the quiet whispers of discomfort that are dismissed by friends, family, and health practitioners as ‘too sensitive’ or ‘just part of getting older.’ Her practice is grounded in the belief that everything is connected – we just need to learn to listen and nourish ourselves deeply and soulfully.
