Megan is a medical herbalist and mental health clinician with a passion for plant medicine, indigenous cultural, dream work and the stars. She has a strong connection with the astrophysical realm, channeling both Earth and cosmic energy into her practice. She combines her medical and botanical knowledge, with heart-centered intuition and a spiritual foundation rooted in First Nations traditions.
Megan obtained a bachelor of science in biopsychology from the University of Victoria, a medical herbalist diploma (3 years schooling) from Pacific Rim College, has taken masters level counselling courses and completed an alchemical herbalism program that integrates the practices of alchemy, spagyrics, medical astrology, traditional western herbalism, Ayurveda and indigenous traditions. Although her formal education has provided a solid foundation for her practice, her most valuable education stems from studying with indigenous healers, where she witnessed the deep relationship between plants and people, experienced the healing power of nature and learnt directly from the plants.
Megan has a strong calling towards working in the field of mental health. Megan also works as a mental health clinician for Island Health, and has 10 years experience in the field of mental health and addictions. She has special interest in working with individuals experiencing spiritual emergencies and first break psychosis.

It is her vision for the future to see a collaboration between modern medicine and traditional herbal phychospiritual practices to assist individuals on their healing journey towards health and wholeness of being.
