As many AFEA graduates know, I’m always open for questions about herbs or complex presentations. I love these questions! Recently, I began a more formal mentoring / tutoring agreement with a new graduate, where we had appointments to talk and go over new herb patients. I realized that after supervising and teaching at AFEA, I really miss the students!
I’ve just relocated from Gainesville, FL to Golden, CO. As part of this move I’m changing how I practice, and am adding in tutoring/mentoring for anyone, but especially new graduates. To keep it affordable for that tricky time as you’re starting out, I’m offering sliding scale $15-$30 an hour. This includes consulting on patterns and formulas, studying or setting up an herbal dispensary or setting up accounts. As a supervisor and Herb Director, I saw some great herbal students avoid herbs in their later practice because of a lack of confidence in their abilities. I’m here to help!
The structure is very flexible but hour appointments are a good length. In addition to phone calls, you can also email follow-up questions and tongue diagnosis pictures. We can set a schedule, i.e. weekly or bi-weekly. Interested? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
