Amy Charnay

"Your sensitive nervous system is only a problem when the environment you exist in does not meet your needs".

I am an herbalist, nutritionist, somatic coach and educator with 15+ years of experience working with clients. While I work with people from various backgrounds, I specialize in supporting women with sensitive nervous systems to cultivate resilience, vitality and capacity to navigate illness, surgery, burnout and transitions, and the stressors of modern life. My work is a reflection of my personal and professional life experiences, largely shaped by relationships. My deep connection to the natural world began in the mountainous landscapes of New York that shaped my early life and continues now in the French Alps, where I currently live. My credentials include a Master’s of Science in Herbal Medicine where I trained with international leaders in herbal safety, efficacy, and Ayurveda. I also hold titles as a Board Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), a Certified Aromatherapist, Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation teacher and Nature Connection Guide. In France, I am a registered Naturopathe. In addition to my professional training, my personal journey has been marked with chronic pain and illness due to surgeries, toxic exposures and tick-borne illnesses, including Lyme disease. These experiences compelled me to explore the empowering world of natural and complementary medicine and helped me grow into a deeply compassionate and experienced guide. I remain grateful for the teachers who supported me on my healing journey and consider it an honor to pay that support forward. I believe that social (in)equities and environmental (in)justices have a significant impact on our well-being and that Black Lives Matter. I donate regularly to organizations that support land rematriation, anti-racism and environmental causes.
