Hi there! I'm Veronica.
Eight years ago, I followed my intuition and...
decided to stop hormonal birth control. I decided to stop all medications, period. The day I got my IUD removed, was the last day I took antibiotics for acne, and embarked on a journey to learn how to take care of my needs, naturally. I followed the breadcrumb trail which led me to intense study in herbalism and fertility awareness.
Today, I'm a wife, mama, clinical herbalist, RH(AHG) and certified Fertility Awareness Educator living in northern California.
I run my business, Kapu, LLC, and am also a faculty clinician, teacher and mentor at the Berkeley Herbal Center in Berkeley, California.
I love making things that don't yet exist, but ought to. I started by making pelvic / yoni steam stools in 2017 (since then have retired my stools), then self-published my Menstrual Calendar Journal in 2018 (currently out of stock! Subscribe to my newsletter so I can let you know when they're back!).
Currently, I offer an online, live program for women who want to learn about natural birth control so they don't have to rely on anything or anybody other than themselves to "manage" their fertility.
I also teach clients how they can use herbal medicine in their daily lives to improve their menstrual cycle, fertility, and overall health.
Kapu (which means taboo or sacred in Hawaiian) is dedicated to supporting women who want to live in tune with nature and their bodies.
"Even over zoom, Veronica has a calming and present energy that put me at ease. Her care and concern for her clients is evident in the questions she asks, the details she picks up on, and the service she provides. I found her to be flexible, knowledgeable and evidence based."

"Veronica is a delight to work with. I loved the herbal protocol she prescribed for me and felt my energy level and overall mood improve within a few days. I found her warmth and confidence in our goddess nature infectious! I have incorporated so many of her suggested self-care rituals into my daily routine and I am most grateful for my improved quality of life since meeting her."
