Community Clinic

In 2022, after 15 years serving East Atlanta, Lorna handed the Community Clinic over to Marie-Lies Van Dusen of Fleur + Forage.  Marie-Lies apprenticed with Herbalista and served at the clinic as a manager for a few years.  If you are looking for in-person herbal consultations in the Atlanta area, please visit the Fleur + Forage webpage to learn more. 

Lorna is not taking any new clients as she focuses her energies on building the Free School curriculum.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest and most widely used form of medicine in the world! Effective, affordable, environmentally friendly, with minimal side effects, and tantalizing to all the senses, herbs are a vital part to a healthy present and future!

Lorna is a general herbal practitioner, not a medical doctor, and does not diagnose disease or prescribe medications.  She has experience aiding children and adults with a variety of issues. She works WITH the patient and value an open, honest dialogue about your current concerns and health goals.  At Herbalista, we value collaborative care and believe that we can achieve our most vital health through cooperation between conventional and traditional medical methods.

After a thorough intake, including medical history and current lifestyle review, she will create a plan consisting of suggestions for healthy daily routines and recommendations for herbal therapies.

Initial consultations last up to 90 minutes.  Follow-up Appointments can last up to 1 hour.
