Private Herbal Consultations
Private consultations may vary in nature. At Earth Commons they combine herbal knowledge and highlight other therapeutic tools and areas of training to help you recover, integrate, and find empowerment in your path of healing.
These consultations are meant to meet you where you are at and offer lifestyle mapping that supports innate resilience in mind, body, & spirit.
What to expect?
These consultations are holistic. They address current health concerns as well as the whole spectrum of your health history.
Your health plan is designed to meet your unique needs and abilities. Every single person is different and life is constantly in flux, so no one protocol will ever be the same.
We are not here to treat or diagnose, however we can compliment modern day medicine and offer you insight into the root cause of imbalance.
We all have our blind spots. Working with a practitioner helps illuminate those & re-pattern imbalances we may not be able to see on our own.
You do not need to be in crisis for an herbal consultation to serve you,
although we can address acute situations that arise. Our consultations include Preventative Medicine – a proactive approach to support everyday health and well-being, aka resilience!
We currently offer socially distanced in-person consultations or virtual consultations! Please scroll down to see our list of skilled practitioners and choose someone who resonates with you. We are a healing network!
We look forward to working with you.

Andrew Herrick is a clinical herbalist and owner of Wild Hearth and Home, a small scale apothecary that specializes in native plant medicines. Working from a heart-centered perspective, Andrew seeks to reconnect people with their most authentic selves using native medicinals, trance meditation, somatic healing techniques, and native entheogens.

“During whole health consultations we will discuss your entire health history and co-create a customized herbal protocol to see you back to your most vital self. Herbs can bring balance to a multitude of health concerns as well as help us process and integrate past traumas that may be inhibiting our personal growth. The greatest joy I can experience is seeing the light reignite in someone’s eyes as they reconnect with themselves after using plant medicine.”
Licensed Acupuncturist/Clinical Herbalist
Nicole Finkelstein is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (NM), Licensed Acupuncturist, and Registered Herbalist who was raised as a naturalist on her family’s strawberry farm in rural Ohio. She spent much of her childhood exploring the plant kingdom and absorbing botanical remedies passed down through generations of Appalachian healers. With over a decade of Western and Eastern herbal study, she founded Herban Austin, an herb farm in Central Texas where she cultivates botanicals for both Traditional Western folk and Chinese medicines which she implements in clinical practice.
Lauren Peterson, herbalist and founder of White Deer Apothecary, trained at the Sacred Journey School of Herbalism in Austin, TX. Her passion for plants grew from her desire to deepen her connection with the natural world and nurture relationships that allow healing to take place.
Her goal is to meet you where you are at in their healing journey and offer herbal allies and practices that support your goals. Deep listening, compassion and joyful encouragement are at the center of all consultations. You can expect to receive herbal and lifestyle recommendations and, if appropriate, a custom herbal formula tailored to your needs.
I am a community/clinical herbalist, herbal medicine maker, teacher, and mother. I have been seeing clients and helping people with their health issues in central Texas for over 20 years. Along the way, I have founded two herb businesses: Texas Medicinals (since 1999) and Sacred Journey School of Herbalism. During herbal health consultations, I ask questions, listen, make a constitutional assessment of how the client’s body operates when out of balance, and make a tonic herbal formula that the client and I come up with together.
