Herbal Support For Your Period, Postpartum, and beyond…
Women are cyclical beings. We cycle every month (ideally!) as we prepare for or avoid pregnancy, we cycle through puberty, fertility, and menopause, and we are strongly impacted by the seasons and changes that come from the lunar cycles and solar year.
When we are out of sync with these cycles, our hormones can run wild and lead us to a host of hormonal issues like PMS, brain fog, struggles with our weight, energy fluctuations, anxiety, and more.
Unfortunately, this is more and more common as we find ourselves living in a culture that is disconnected from nature and cyclical living, thrives on overwhelm, and is increasingly toxic in what we are exposed to from our food, to our products, and living environments.
Have you noticed that you are out of sync with your cycles?
Are you looking for a safe space to talk about your menstrual cycle challenges, postpartum mood swings, or how to optimize your fertility with natural approaches?
Have you done lots of research yourself, or maybe don’t even know where to start?
Do you have a hunch what is going on, but want someone to walk with you as you explore your options? Or maybe you have no idea what is happening to your body and moods, but just know something is not right.
It can take women years to find someone who is supportive and can help finally lead them in the right direction.
I want to help you understand what is going on with your hormones, in your body, and get you back on track to feeling like yourself!
Let’s figure out where your hormones are out of balance and see what steps we can take to start feeling like YOU again.
Herbal Coaching Consultations
During an herbal coaching consultation we will look holistically at your current health concerns or goals and work together to establish a wellness plan. This process will look different from what you may be used to with traditional providers as there will be a lot of focus on understanding your background, current situation, and goals for the future with you as a key player in the path to your goal. Herbalists are not licensed healthcare providers and therefore unable to diagnose or treat any conditions. Instead, an herbal health coach can help provide guidance for health and lifestyle modifications that can work as a complement to care you are receiving from other providers.
I am here to offer guidance and suggestions based on my education and experience while helping you to better understand your circumstance and how you would like to proceed. We typically do this through an hour consultation where I will seek to understand your unique situation more thoroughly and provide education. This will be followed-up with a more detailed educational outline of suggestions emailed to you that expand on our session.
An initial intake + consultation with a detailed herbal, dietary, supplement, and lifestyle suggestion write-up is $175 (includes 2 oz of tea). Follow-up meetings to discuss how things are going and revise the plan with new suggestions are $90. Packages are available.
Sometimes people ask to just “pick my brain” and want to have a short phone call or email exchange. It is $45 to have a 15-30 minute phone call with the intent for herbal thoughts/suggestions (generally with an email follow-up), or for me to thoughtfully respond to an email-based question with a list of herbal considerations. If there are many questions and I take several hours to reply I will move to an hourly fee to respond of $35/hour.

I was given Christine’s name and number at the beginning of 2021 by my doctor. During my first appointment with her, I felt confident that she would be able to help me. Not only was Christine very kind, encouraging, patient, and listened carefully to every detail; but she was also very knowledgeable in herbs and remedies–which was a comfort to me. She made many helpful suggestions and wrote up a specific plan for me that I could easily follow. Anytime I emailed Christine with a question or concern, she would always respond in a timely manner with the answers that I needed. After several months of seeing her, I have noticed an improvement. If you prefer to go the natural route, I highly recommend making an appointment with Christine Cassella–you won’t be disappointed.
Please fill out the contact form to the right, to get started. Let me know your general concern and if I think I am a good fit to help, I will respond with a disclosure form to sign as well as an intake form to complete before we schedule our meeting.
