Address: Kingfield Neighborhood + Online
55419
Last Name: bergeron
First Name: cheré
Business Phone: 651.395.8324
Short Business Description: community-based, sliding scale herbalism & flower essence consultations, craniosacral bodywork, cupping therapy, full spectrum doula care, placenta encapsulation, and death midwifery services
Long Business Description:

About Me:
I create medicine + magic, weaving together care webs for healing justice + collective liberation.

I am an herbalist, ​bodyworker, doula / companion, Traiteux, aspiring Völva, + witch working within my ancestral + cultural lineages through my community-based care practice, Sassafras Healing Arts. I am here by way of my ancestors: Cajun, Norse, Prussian, Belgian, German, + Roma tenant farmers, caretakers, healers, herbalists, nurses, blacksmiths, jewelers, clockmakers, + merchants. I am a queer, non-binary, chronically ill/disabled, multiethnic, southern transplant currently living on occupied Dakhóta + Anishinaabe land in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I spent my childhood in New Orleans, Louisiana (Chickasaw, Chitimacha, + Choctaw Territory) & my adolescence in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (Anishinaabe, Dakhóta + Ho-Chunk Territories).

My past movement homes have included People’s Movement Center, The Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition, + The HOTDISH Militia Abortion Fund. I am also the Co-Founder of Herbalists for Racial Justice (established 2016) + the Historian, Archivist, + Director of Operations, Accessibility, + Sustainability at SPIRAL Collective (established 2012). I spent a decade working within sexual + domestic violence prevention + advocacy before becoming a Registered Public Health Nurse in 2019.​

My Practice:
I practice under a healing justice framework. As someone with white settler ancestry & who identifies as a non-binary queer witch, this means uplifting femme folks, queer & trans folks, black folks, indigenous folks, & people of color as healers, as well as to center marginalized communities in my practice. I strive to bring my whole self to my clients & meet them where they are at, respecting their decisions, honoring their intuition, & working to co-create a container for them to see themselves as the powerful healers & magic-makers they are. I strive to bring an ethic of communal care to my practice, recognizing that we cannot “self care” our traumas away, & that we do not survive alone.

Sliding Scale Fees & Accessibility:
I utilize a sliding scale fee for almost all of my services. My hope with this approach is that folks who have the financial ability to pay more will pay more and folks who need to pay less will pay less and everything will balance itself out. The sliding scale fee exists for people who have low or no income and/or have limited to no employment. I believe everyone deserves access to the healing they desire & deserve. I highly encourage you to contact me if finances are a barrier to you receiving support​ from me at any time! At times I am able to work outside of my sliding scale on a limited, as-needed basis.

In December of 2018 I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing’s Master of Nursing Program as a Registered Nurse, after 3 years of prerequisites, graduate school coursework, and clinicals.

I offer my services in person as well as through phone or Skype.
