KelseyOjaiKelsey’s clinical herbal practice combines her philosophy of  simplicity and client empowerment towards optimal health as goal.   She holistically engages her practice through harvesting and crafting sustainable plant medicine, offering client centered sessions and formulating medicine based on individuals needs.   She believes embracing plants as part of our larger community gives us greater opportunity to reconnect in meaningful ways.

Kelsey’s connection to community health arose while crafting legislation with New York City Council’s “Committee on Women Issues”.  Cooperatively working with councilwomen to pass New York City’s first legislation for women of color with HIV instilled in her the possibility of large-scale health care change.  Kelsey’s approach to health transformed on a pilgrimage to France where she studied with the herbalist and scholar Matthew Wood and flower essence master Julia Graves, in 2009.  This experience oriented her to nature as the primary source of healthcare.  Upon returning from France she co-founded an herbal gathering “Heavy Nettle Collective”, which presently holds monthly workshops in Los Angeles hosting local and national plant healers.  Continuing her education, Kelsey graduated from Ohlone Herbal Center as a Clinical Western Herbalist, where she applied her knowledge in a community clinic setting.  Kelsey currently works as the Director of Operations at Ohlone Herbal Center, on core faculty, and has an active herbal practice.

Combining her commitment to transform cultural beliefs of healthcare, Clinical Western Herbal training, and Reiki Master practice, she would be honored to support your health and healing by way of herbal, energetic, and nutritional consult.
