I have studied with Maia for a couple of years now, first at West Chester University in her Botanical Medicine course, then at her Community Herbalist Training program in Chestnut Hill, and now in the Herbal Wellness Coaching program. When I met Maia, I knew that I found a true holistic health mentor. My background is … Continue Reading…
So much happened during the three months I worked with Maia. Looking back, the changes amaze me. For the first time in many years, I’ve made it through an East Coast winter without suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder, and this is several months after a death in the immediate family! But beyond that, I’ve really … Continue Reading…
I’ve always been deeply intuitive—I’ve always known things, always gotten to the answers differently than most people I know. But I didn’t come at the world that way. I was a rational, articulate, creative thinker who always had words and smart explanations and solid common sense. But then my marriage exploded, and I … Continue Reading…
I have had the pleasure to have worked with Maia for the past few years. Maia and I worked as a team to holistically treat, with excellent results, all the patients we had in common. She has an academic knowledge of Herbology and is an excellent instructor. Anyone who desires to utilize herbs in their treatment plan … Continue Reading…

But there are so many times when I don't "have to," so the beauty stays inside. Why Witch Camp works for me? It allows whatever is inside this ol' brain to get … Continue Reading…
A few months back I won a blogging contest. The prize was pretty hefty. Hefty enough that I thought what can I create with this that will support both my readers and me in a new and interesting way? As I was noodling on this, the bizarre stench that had been haunting my office […]
Sitting in her car after our first lunch “date” together, my new friend popped the dreaded question: How do you stay so grounded? Do you do daily ritual? I cringed. I’m a Gemini after all—we don’t do daily anything except breathe and even that is sometimes optional. But when you do the type of […]
Learning to trust yourself can feel like an act of faith or a cliff dive… or at least a precipice walk. From this side of the learning curve, it’s easy to think “but whom or what else could you possibly trust? Ourselves are the only thing we have half a shot of actually knowing in […]
It shouldn’t have been so intimidating: put herbs in mason jar fill to the rim with vodka stir seal Not difficult and certainly not rocket science for someone who knew her way around the kitchen. And yet… Was it really okay to pick dandelions from my yard? What if a dog had peed on them? […]
When I was twelve, I wrote a note to my future self in my journal. The note said: “don’t confuse safety with happiness.” Sometimes I stare at those simple words in awe of my past self. How did I know, at twelve, that those were the words I would most need to read at nineteen, […]
I used to be a do-it-yourselfer. I truly believed that I should be able to grow it, cook it, can it, build it, and paint it… all while running my own business and adopting every wayward plant and stray human who crossed my path. Paying someone else to do a job I was sure I […]
