Hannah Jacobson-Hardy, an herbalist and certified life coach, recently established a new business, Sweet Birch Herbals, at 49 Gothic St., Suite 3.
On Saturday, Jan. 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., she will take part in a Meet the Healer event with other practitioners at Forbes Library.
Sweet Birch Herbals provides life coaching and herbal consultations.
Jacobson-Hardy said, through her coaching services, she helps people who are experiencing or contemplating work or life transitions as well as people seeking to improve their personal or work lives. “I guide people in recognizing their strengths and help them identify what makes their hearts sing,” she said.
Through her herbal consultations, Jacobson-Hardy uses holistic, herbal remedies for people who are struggling with health issues – including insomnia, allergies, stress management, menstrual irregularities, Lyme disease, immune disorders and common colds.
“I’ve always loved working with people and plants and being outside in nature,” she said. “I chose this career path because I personally benefitted from herbal medicine when having health issues a few years ago. It was amazing how effective they were.
“I want everyone to have the opportunity to experience a level of holistic health that looks at the whole person – not just symptoms,” she added.
Jacobson-Hardy is a certified life coach and registered herbalist through the American Herbalist Guild. She trained and apprenticed with Chris Marano of Clearpath Herbals School in Montague. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sustainability and environmental justice from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
