Danielle is a student of Spirit. Daughter of a Black-identifying Afro-Indigenous family reclaiming their diasporic roots, Danielle began cultivating with ancestors in ceremony, dreams and nature as a child. Within her own journey into motherhood, Danielle felt a catalyzing call for deep healing, and her ancestors and plants supported her to begin healing old traumas and more fully inhabit life. Seven years into honoring this call, Danielle is an energetic herbalist, astrologer and preschool teacher. Seeking the energetic root behind disease, Danielle's practice draws on plant medicine, evolutionary astrology, and mediumship. She offers private consultations, community healing workshops & plant meditations across Huichin Ohlone/East Bay land and online. Danielle is the founder of Temple of Earth Apothecary, a brick-and-mortar herb shop and Black/Indigenous healing sanctuary space, opening doors in Spring, 2022.
