Study With Me

learn how your body is speaking to you and ways to boost immune system through Gemmotherapy protocols

Your body speaks to you through the language of symptoms

Learn how to communicate with your body and heal naturally

I believe that self-awareness is an essential first step to healing. To engage in the art of Gemmotherapy you must first be in touch with yourself. It’s like the art of cooking: it’s not about the recipe, but about your understanding of how ingredients interact with each other.

Gemmotherapy is an accessible tool for everyone to remind their body how it was designed to work.

Whether you're new to Gemmotherapy or have considerable experience, these courses give you a unique and practical framework for using these extracts to their greatest potential. 

If you want to learn techniques to support your personal healing and then support clients or family members, there’s a class for you. I believe that the most profound healing happens when the teachings are fully embodied, so this is not about checking boxes and memorizing facts. These courses are designed to help you to intimately engage with your own healing before you step into the role of sharing these teachings with others. 

Will you gain knowledge? Of course.

But is this about passing a test? Absolutely not. 


learn how to boost immune system naturally for you and your family


This is about establishing a foundation of healthy living for you and your family (and if you so choose, for your clients) that will last a lifetime. My classes are designed to support you in welcoming in a new way of living.

I believe we all have the capability to become our own healer, so my classes are for anyone interested in learning this path for themselves, whether you wish to heal your own body, your children, or your clients!


similar to ayurvedic medicine Gemmotherapy looks at the root causes of dis-ease in the body


In your studies, you will learn that symptoms have a root cause and from these root causes, primary and secondary symptoms develop. Symptoms from childhood that were suppressed do not go away, but simply morph into more serious inflammatory conditions. What will begin to unfold is an understanding that we must look at the entire system of how to heal the body, rather than singling out one symptom from the other. 

The reductionist framework of healing dominates both conventional and natural health care models. Unfortunately, this limits our capacity to fully heal. I will expose you to a different model with a true holistic lens, which will then allow you to see the interconnectedness of symptoms and trace them from their current expression to the point of origin.  

Once we know how everything interacts, we may then follow a particular order of processes that leads to sustained and fundamental healing.

Restoring Immunity Classes

Restoring Immunity 1: Your Nervous System and Emotions

This is where our journey begins! The first step towards any lasting, structural change is establishing a solid foundation, so that’s why everyone must begin with this class. We’ll explore personal and conventional beliefs about health and healing, while also considering the idea that if our efforts are placed on restoring immunity, we must seek to understand the root of every symptom. We’ll learn the roles of the central and autonomic nervous systems in restoring immunity and how a deeper understanding of the subtle body creates lasting change.

Restoring Immunity 2: Your Elimination Systems

Poor elimination is the root cause of so many chronic symptoms, so it’s here where we’ll deepen our understanding of how to improve immunity with the assistance of specific Gemmos. You’ll learn the role that the urinary and digestive systems have in restoring immunity, as well as how to use specific extracts for optimizing all elimination. Specifically, there are nine extracts that support healthy elimination, and during these four weeks, you’ll learn how to identify when and how to use each one.

Restoring Immunity 3: Your Vitality

Your vitality is the energy resource available at any given moment for your body to heal. What I’ve noticed is that too often we confuse vitality with fitness. Fitness is predominantly about muscle strength, and that’s too narrow of an instrument to measure overall health. Vitality is your reservoir for healing, and it’s critical to note (and embody!) that your level of vitality can change from day to day, and most certainly year to year. Learn how to navigate the path to restore your immunity as you increase vitality.

Advanced Topic Classes

Gemmotherapy: A Polyvagal Approach to Extracts for the Nervous System (Recording)

My introduction to Polyvagal Theory in the summer of 2020 was a literal gamechanger for me. Polyvagal Theory provided me with a new lens for health and my interactions with others, and it provided the very framework I had sought for Gemmotherapy for the nervous system.

In this four-part series, join me as I dive deeper into why Polyvagal Theory and Gemmotherapy are such perfect complements to one another.

Shamanic Journey to the Trees I

It is a deep wish of mine that each of my students develop a personal relationship with the extracts and the trees and shrubs from which they are derived. Over time I have observed those relationships formed in a variety of rich and meaningful ways. This class is an invitation to take those relationships even further using the ancient shamanic practice of journeying.

Inspiring Remedies to Support Gemmotherapy (Recording)

In this class, we will take a slight detour from Gemmotherapy to explore eight of Tinus Smit’s Inspiring Remedies. Because these remedies address different stages of incarnation they are the perfect support for Restoring Immunity protocols. Through this class, you’ll begin to see how other homeopathic and healing modalities can be a beautiful complement to Gemmotherapy.

Case Management

Once you’ve completed Restoring Immunity 1-3, you may be eager to apply all that you’ve learned to better support clients and/or family members. If so, this monthly series is a beautiful way to support you in your growth as a Gemmotherapy practitioner. Over five months, we’ll gather for 90 minutes and support each other in rich discussions of cases shared by an international community. There is so much dense learning and deep connection on these calls — making them something I always look forward to.

Learn Gemmotherapy protocols to bring comfort and ease in later stages of life.

Gemmotherapy for Aging Adults (Recording)

Improving quality of life is key when working with aging clients. Following the four stages of Restoring Immunity, we’ll shift priorities and debunk the myths that aging is painful. We will predominantly focus on brain health, emotional support, and extracts that act as diuretics, as well as follow exciting new research that will guide this exploratory module on Gemmotherapy and aging. Learn what symptoms can still be resolved and which can be improved to bring comfort and ease in this later stage of life.

Learn about the extracts that promote lymphatic drainage and circulatory health

Gemmotherapy for Restoring Alkalinity (Recording)

What happens after one’s elimination has been optimized? It’s now time to begin the cleaning that remains through Restoring Alkalinity, which is considered Stage 3 in the Restoring Immunity system. You will learn to recognize and resolve long-standing states of acidosis, discover which areas of the body receive priority and the extracts that have proven most useful for each, and be introduced to deeper acting extracts for the kidneys, as well as other extracts that promote lymphatic drainage and circulatory health.

Learn how to resolve rather than suppress symptoms in babies and children

Gemmotherapy for Babies & Children (Recording)

Many of us have come to this place of unlearning habits that were taught to us from an early age. What if we could teach the next generations to foster acquired immunity from birth and throughout childhood with methods for resolving rather than suppressing symptoms? With this course, we’ll explore exactly that! Become acquainted with a unique intake process for babies and children, as well as basic case management due to their rapid growth and development.
