Hi! I'm Camille Freeman.

I offer continuing education and community for highly-trained herbalists and nutritionists 

Becoming an exceptional, integrity-driven practitioner is a journey.

It's also one of the most challenging things I've ever done. 

When I started my practice in 2004, I had no idea how much personal growth - emotionally, spiritually, and skill development - would be required to start and run a practice.

Like so many of you, I started with lots of education and no idea how to find clients. Or run a business. It's common to feel insecure and overwhelmed at how many steps there suddenly seem to be between you and doing the work you were trained to do.

After you figure out those first steps, the complexity still remains - and maybe even grows over time. Cases get harder. Life pressures evolve. Rather than not having enough clients, now you're juggling too many. Keeping up with both growing as a clinician and holding a business together can feel lonely and like a heavy weight to carry.

Especially when all you want to do is help people and sustain yourself.

I get it. And it’s why I do what I do.

Small steps add up over time.

I’ve been a  practicing licensed nutritionist and clinical herbalist, university educator, and mentor to hundreds of students and clients for nearly twenty years, but I still remember how hard it was to take those first steps (and the second ones, and the fifteenth ones).

In all that time, one thing remains clear: growing a practice with integrity and empathy while making a living requires monumental personal growth. 

Often, it's harder than it should be. 

But when you take surround yourself with a supportive community and experienced guidance, small steps can add up to bigger ones. Growth can take root from a place of alignment, professionalism, and sustainability.

Now I mentor both new and experienced herbalists and nutritionists who're looking for help doing just that. 

Whether you’re brand new and trying to figure out all. the. things., or you’re a professional looking for help and peer support in navigating tricky cases, or you’re looking to grow and deepen your practice as a clinician, I’ve developed programs to support you.

Through group mentoring, monthly CEU webinars, online courses, my podcast, and so much more - I offer my work in service of an industry I love.

It is my wholehearted belief that when big hearted people create thriving, well-aligned businesses that can support themselves and their communities in better health and wellness, we all rise.
