Abrah has been my lifesaver in my treatment of Lyme Disease! I have the utmost respect for her knowledge, experience and empathetic considerate approach. I don't know where I would be without Abrah. I would highly recommend Abrah.

Abrah’s clinic is warm and comfortable, and her graceful presence is an absolute joy. Her herbal remedies are crafted with consciousness, care and years of practice, the results are truly exceptional . I recommend her to individuals seeking a holistic approach to wellness for the first time, as well as those experienced in plant medicine. Whether you are taking a meditation class, or seeking a clinical consultation, you will be in good hands.
Abrah is warm and welcoming, her knowledge and care extend above and beyond diagnosing and prescribing. I always walk out of her clinic feeling lighter. I deeply appreciate her intuitive way with people and medicine.
