Cheyenne is a Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist at the Evergreen Center Clinic.

Cheyenne has participated in an array of nature therapy/outdoor education programs to better embody her passion for walking in the stewardship of the Earth; an ode to bridge connections between people and nature. Now, a practicing student of clinical herbalism, Cheyenne combines these tools with a focus on Vitalist practices and the importance of food as medicine. She is especially fascinated with the psychological-gut-health correlation as well as how stored emotional trauma may show up within the physical/mental body. She is committed to supporting an individual’s ability to connect with their inner vitality. Cheyenne is ecstatic to offer deep listening and conversation, provide space for all of you to feel welcomed, and truly look forward to being of support in your unique healing journey towards vibrant health and vital well-being!

Lexy Currier | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Heal Thy Gut

Lexy is currently enrolled as a Clinical Herbalist, Nutritionist, and Flower Essence Practitioner at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in the Evergreen Center. From a young age, Lexy was always surrounded by Herbal medicine. Growing up in Southern California, the winters were mild which meant her family could maintain a garden throughout the year. Every winter her mother treated her and her siblings with herbal remedies from the garden anytime they began to get a cold. With her mother being a gardener, and later her sister owning a farm, Lexy began to find a deep connection to the plants and a great appreciation for the Earth. She found herself being fascinated by Ancient Medicine and healing modalities. She acquired certifications in Reiki I & II, she got her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training certification and began self-studying herbal and Chinese medicine.

After deciding to leave San Diego to head east for the Rockies, Lexy enrolled in CSCH where she gained a deeper knowledge for our plant friends and learned more about how to live a vitalist life. She is dedicated to finding the root cause in her clients and her mission with herbal medicine is to help people by giving them the tools and knowledge they need to live a healthy and vitalist life.

By connecting the body, spirit, and mind, Lexy believes in the innate ability herbal medicine has to support her clients toward total wellness. She is fascinated with the gut-brain health and how it is all connected. She believes the mind has a huge impact on health and loves using flower essences to assist with the emotional body. She hopes to spread her love and knowledge in herbal medicine and help her clients on their healing journey.

Liz Faermark | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Oral Health

Liz is a Midwest-made artist and herbalist with a passion for empowering people to use accessible tools in their pursuit of feeling at peace in their own bodies. Through the use of intentional listening and clear communication with her clients, she aims to offer permission to come as you are.

Liz worked for years as a vegan cook at an underground, non-profit restaurant with radical roots in community organizing, music, and nourishing food. She has also spent the last several years growing organic vegetables, flowers, and medicinal herbs in central Illinois on small-scale farms. Throughout her years of cooking and farming in the Midwest, she developed a passion for learning and experimenting with wild edibles and medicinal plants. Making herbal medicine with safe and abundant medicinals from her garden and nearby wild places was her first peek into the potent and powerful world of herbalism. She was inspired by her discoveries. Her deep love for plants, food, art, and community healing eventually led her to study at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in 2018.

Her work at the Little Herbal Apothecary in Lafayette, CO invites her to continue the study of safe and simple herbal preparations. There, she can be found in the kitchen mixing teas and whipping up a host of skincare products, or at the counter blending custom formulas and helping customers get acquainted with herbs. While at play, Liz likes to weave together music and comedy with her band, ride her bike, and read Tom Robbins’ novels creekside.

Through her creation and studies, she humbly wishes to share life’s many medicines — be it a meal, a tea, a salve, or a song — that can uplift individuals and communities alike.

Harry Funk | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Natural Repair of the Human Body

Harry is not your typical herbalist. After a lifetime of playing competitive sports and exploring different obscure professions like backcountry guiding, he stumbled upon herbalism by chance in an online forum when trying to cure himself of a 6-month bout with sinusitis. After seeing success with the practice of herbalism, it became his calling and the beginning of a long journey that included irreplaceable education and self-healing.

This journey has shaped Harry into a positive energetic and mindful healer, with an affinity for helping those who feel drained, depleted, and stuck battling chronic illnesses, as he once did. He also specializes in optimizing the body’s abilities when it comes to physical exertion, with a great deal of knowledge in muscle repair and supplementation.

Harry also has a passion for expanding the Male herbal body here in America. With herbalism here being mostly female dominant, he wishes to break down the walls of prejudice that seem to refrain other men from exploring this world of healing, hoping to make it attractive to people from all walks of life.

All together, Harry is a people’s person. Always with a smile on his face and passion in his eyes, he is eager to assist anyone willing to have a session with him.

Evan Galhotra | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Vital Fermentation

Evan Singh is a queer herbalist and craftsperson of Indian and European descent who grew up in the Great Lakes region of Turtle Island. Four years ago, Evan turned to the plants in their Chicago backyard to explore the food, medicine, and connection they were freely offered in the busy and overwhelming city. After several months of plant exploration, the weeds were finding their way into Evan’s meals, tinctures were being made, and the forests were Evan’s newfound sanctuary.

The following year, Evan went on to apprentice at Ardea Homestead Sanctuary in the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina. After a season of walking barefoot, making plant medicine, growing food, foraging, and learning to process animals for food, Evan’s heart had shifted deeply. They were eager to continue living in close relationship with the land. In the next few years, Evan completed several internships at primitive living schools in the Northeast where the arts of basketry and hide tanning became important skills in their repertoire.

The enrichment, medicine, and solace plants can offer in our modern times became more apparent to them after collecting these experiences. In the summer of 2018, Evan moved to Colorado to pursue the knowledge and skills it would take to bring herbal and nutritional healing to the communities in their life. Through this experience, they have come to realize the role that individual health plays in helping us achieve our hopes and dreams, and heal personal and collective wounds. Evan would like to help others enliven the health and vitality that will enable them to do the work they feel most called to do in the world.

Barrett Hartley | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | A Botanical Approach To Eating Disorders

Barrett is a Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. Her passion for plant medicine began after experiencing multiple health complications of her own that left her feeling hopeless. After seeing profound results from the use of herbs and lifestyle changes, she decided to dedicate her time to the study of herbal medicine. She moved from Charleston, South Carolina to Colorado to expand her knowledge of Clinical Herbalism at CSCH. Adapting to a dry climate with substantially different terrain than her Southeastern home gave her a new sense of appreciation for the abundance of natural medicine that grows at our fingertips, as well as the importance of living off the land.

Barrett has worked hands-on with children for many years. She worked in a daycare for five years as well as working with new mothers throughout the postpartum period. Barrett plans to broaden her practice by becoming a Certified Ayurvedic Doula in the near future. She is fascinated by fertility and child development (mental and physical), as well as the significance of a healthy lifestyle throughout their primitive years. In her clinical practice, she is interested in hands-on experience with children as well as adults. She is dedicated to helping others heal the mind, body, and spirit using herbal formulas, nourishment, and vitalist practices. While stressing the importance of removing obstacles to heal, she will help you seek balance and harmony to the best of her abilities. Barrett finds joy in growing her own food, having her bare feet on the earth, and her hands in the soil. She is inspired by the art of medicine making, self-expression, and the therapeutic power of music.

Barrett looks forward to holding space for others, building relationships, and using the art of herbal formulation to clear a path for mental and physical wellbeing.

Lara Holland | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Medicinal Plants, Their uses, history, & lore

Lara is currently enrolled as a Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. Her love of plants as medicine and faith in natural modalities for healing has been lifelong. She took several herbalism and nutrition courses through different apothecaries and online schools and under a variety of different herbalists, including Rosemary Gladstar’s home study course, before deciding to commit to studying full time.

Lara studied Sustainable Building and Design at Colorado State University. After college, feeling totally burnt out and on the wrong path, she took off to live on the road climbing across the mountain west for almost a decade. Eventually, she took a job as a power pole inspector in the same areas of the US. Hiking 10-15 miles a day in a variety of landscapes she loved being in nature full time.

Eventually, nagging health problems began to take over and limit her ability to climb, kayak, and ski as well as work on power poles. She began a business of her own out of her house to limit her travel and physical exertion. Bouncing around from doctor to doctor, after years of digging, she was diagnosed with multiple auto-immune disorders. Having never been a fan of the modern medical model, everything she was being told simply didn’t resonate with her.  She began to change more things in her diet and research all that she could find on the subject from other AI patients. It was as if these diagnoses were a sign that she should indeed follow her passions in a more serious manner, which is what led her to finally enrolling at CSCH.

Lara firmly believes that healing and health, in general, are a combination of connection to something greater, community and relationships, movement, nature, inspiration as well as nutrition and herbalism. Lara is so grateful to have the opportunity to be a student and clinician at the Colorado School of Clinical herbalism and hopes to be able to help educate and inspire others in their paths to well-being.

Chelsea is a Clinical Herbalist and Nutritionist at the Evergreen Center Clinic. She views health as an overall balance between the mind and body. She stumbled upon the world of herbal medicine while working in New Zealand as a nanny. During this experience, she witnessed people receive equally as much as they returned to earth. They understood the power that lay underneath their feet and treated it with respect. In turn, this sparked her desire to share the Earth’s wisdom with others.

As an herbalist, she is passionate about shedding light on these issues. As well as use the knowledge and experiences that she has to educate and reconnect individuals to themselves. Through her work, she pulls in a combination of diet, movement, and herbal allies that work best with each individual.

Corine Lightner | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Herbal First Aid

Growing up amongst the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains, surrounded by the high desert, Corine found solitude and wonder in her mom’s gardens. There, a strong female lineage of plant lovers passed the torch of appreciation for the beauty of the natural world.

Throughout college, her health struggles impeded her ability to progress academically. Persistent digestive pains, migraines, brain fog, and acne plagued her everyday life. Frustrated with the mainstream traditional practices in nutrition and health care, she searched for an alternative approach. While living in Chico, California, she finally found a doctor who gave her some answers and holistic remedies. That experience not only brought her healing but also paved the way toward a career in alternative medicine that incorporates a medical background with respect for the intelligence of the body.

She has a deep respect for plants, their medicine, and the amazing transformations they can inspire in people. She’s learned the importance of keeping up with a creative exercise routine, cultivating a peaceful home, and treasuring time alone. Corine’s love for cooking continues to grow; balancing dietary changes, and learning new ways to nourish the body have fueled her passion to make food that tastes as good as it feels.

Corine’s passion for doing clinical work is rooted in her own struggle. Having worked for years to heal her own body, she’s developed a toolkit for holistic, self-empowered healing. All the while, she is still working to uncover the mysteries of her own experiences surrounding digestive health and hormonal imbalances. She hopes to support her clients by weaving together the powerful impacts of nutritional and lifestyle choices, movement, spiritual practices, herbal formulas, and time spent in nature. Her own clinical research is focused on digestive issues and the gut-brain connection.

Tara Miller | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Ethically and Sustainably Sourcing Herbs

Tara has always had a passion for health and holistic healing since the conception of her first child. As she sought out the most natural ways to nourish and support her growing child, this commitment extended to natural and holistic child-rearing. In her basket of tools was the profound healing potential of plant medicine. Tara went on to teach childbirth classes and became a certified Doula helping others realize their dream of natural childbirth and holistic child-rearing. She continued her path of self-study and learning about natural health, holistic nutrition, and herbal medicine which she has been exploring and cultivating for the past 25 years.

Tara has a BA in Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma and completed studies in the Transpersonal Psychology M.A. Program at Naropa in Boulder, CO. Tara then went on to become a registered nurse with an Associates RN degree from Front Range Community College in Fort Collins, CO. She is currently working as a hospice nurse in the Northern Colorado area.

Becoming disenchanted by the changing climate of our current health care system, Tara began to seek out schools that would align more easily with her passion for natural medicine and her calling to become a clinical and medical herbalist. This brought her to CSCH where she is currently a student of Clinical Herbalism. The knowledge she brings from being a registered nurse in allopathic medicine will add much to balance her wisdom of herbal medicine.

A belief in the body’s ability to heal itself and a passion for natural health and healing is the driving force for continuing this journey. Having battled with her own health concerns, Tara has sought out natural healing modalities, including dietary and lifestyle changes and herbal medicine to bring about profound healing changes in her own body. Knowing the body is its own healing vessel, she believes we can empower ourselves as healers with the help of our plant allies.

She is a graduate of the Agroecology program at the University of California in Santa Cruz and has spent the last 5 years working as a horticultural researcher, farmer, and garden educator in Southern California.

Christine’s experience in herbalism is deeply connected to her passion for ecological agriculture and regenerative systems.

Ellianna Sternberg | Clinician

Clinic Blog Post | Flower Essences + Food Intolerances

Ellianna (they/them/theirs) is a queer, anti-racist herbalist student, currently enrolled as a Clinical Herbalist, Nutritionist, and Flower Essence Practitioner at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. They currently reside in Arapahoe, Cheyenne, Ute and Očeti Šakówiŋ lands near the Rocky Mountains, but were born and raised in Peoria, Potawatomi, Miami, and Očeti Šakówiŋ lands in the Great Lakes region. As a White person with Celtic and Jewish ancestry, they are dedicated to practicing further decolonization in their life, work, and participation in social systems.

Ellianna is a recent graduate of the University of Denver, where they received two degrees in Physics and Gender and Women’s Studies with honors. Shortly after graduation, however, their ancestors nudged them towards a different, yet profoundly soul-fulfilling path of (re)connecting with the Earth through herbalism and the healing arts. After graduation in the spring, Ellianna will pursue a doctorate in naturopathic medicine at the National University of Healthcare Sciences in Illinois. They are also enrolled in a post-disaster/emergency-preparedness doula certification course with the Herbal Medics Academy run by Sam and Suchil Coffman, and Katia Lemone.

Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 13, Ellianna has a long history with autoimmune diseases and food intolerances. After years of struggling with bad bellies, systemic pain, and mental illness, they are (mostly) happily journeying along the path to a less-leaky gut. They are intensely fascinated by the human body and the various breathtaking connections we have with our Earth. They look forward to rekindling and supporting your connection with the Earth, your healing journey, and search for joy and wellness. Ellianna is taking steps to become a Health At Every Size (HAES) nutrition counselor and is focused on creating and protecting a queer-affirming and body-positive space for healing.

In their free time, you can find them preparing for the climate apocalypse by learning homesteading and survival skills, with their nose in a novel whilst drinking a cup of tea, dabbling in urban gardening, working as a board member of the Colorado Doula Project, practicing Nature-based spirituality in Colorado’s wild spaces, and gazing lovingly at the moon.

Katie earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies with a minor in International Development from Colorado State University and has worked in a corporate setting for many years. She has always found solace and healing from nature but did not find her way to herbalism until many years down the road of life.

Desperate for healing she turned away from western medicine and sought out acupuncture, spiritual healing, and plant medicine. That has made all the difference.

She has a passion for painting, photography, and floral design. When she is not in the clinic she can be found working as a staff herbalist at Herbs & Arts in Denver.

Katie no longer struggles with chronic infection or debilitating allergies. She has not taken antibiotics in two years.

Laurie Love Rochardt | Clinician
