Jessica Clark bio

Jessica studied holistic clinical herbalism at the California School of Herbal Studies in Forestville, CA, and previously as an apprentice in Donna D’terra's Yerba Women Herbal Apprenticeship in Willits, CA. After her study at CSHS, she took a Clinical Herbalist Certification program with her instructor and clinical herbalist from CSHS, Bryan Bowen, M.S. In the program, she and the class created a free mobile clinic, Bay Herbalism, which provided free access to natural health care for under-served populations. She has volunteered as a practitioner with the Botanical Bus – bilingual mobile herbal clinic – which provides free health care access to Latinx folx and farmworkers. Also, along with working at Farmacopia, she works as a clinical herbalist for West County Health Centers, collaborating with doctors to provide care to the clinic’s patients.

As a practitioner, Jessica trusts in the innate process of healing inherent in each person, cultivating this gift with her clients. She believes that each person is not their set of discomforts, but a complex whole being comprised of body, mind, spirit, and soul having a unique experience. She recognizes that each symptom is part of a language which the body uses to try to communicate its needs. Actively tuning in to what the body is trying to say, she crafts unique herbal formulas for clients, along with a road map of lifestyle adjustments, self-care practices, personal reflections, and appropriate supplementation.
