Some of the modalities she utilizes are Holistic Dialogue, Nutrition Coaching, Herbs, Iridology, Reflexology, CranioSacral Therapy, Light Healing Touch, Reiki, Essential Oils, & Homeopathy. Erica continues to pursue her education in various aspects of natural health, and is currently studying Western Herbalism with Jim McDonald.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by how the human body works. I was also exposed to natural folk remedies via both of my grandmothers – one of German descent, and the other who emigrated from Mexico as a teenager. Both of these special women grew up in poor circumstances where a doctor’s visit was a luxury, so using folk remedies was just a way of life. These days, the more I study natural health, all of the ways my grandmothers remedied common ailments make so much sense! A future in health & wellness was probably always in the cards, though it was a winding road. After earning a degree in Biology, I spent a decade working in the automotive industry until 2013, when I was inspired by a good friend to study Naturopathy in earnest. My passion for naturopathy led me to open Nature’s Wisdom in January of 2016, where I’m honored to hold space for my clients who want to assume control of their well-being using natural and traditional methods.
