We meet once every two months, and each session is a step of a process that unfolds over a longer span of time.
I am an experienced Practitioner, and have been offering this work successfully for 29 years. I have a steady following of satisfied clients, many of them based in Brazil, where I practiced in person for many years.
Space for thorough listening to your deepest needs and yearnings
More than anything, this is a space for you to be heard in a comprehensive way. Here, YOUR needs will be considered at the deepest level.
Flower Essence Therapy supports a healthy emotional life, while nurturing a truly Soulful life! It helps you face challenges, build qualities, change patterns.
In our work together, as a result of thorough listening, your needs will be accurately translated, each time, into a precise Flower Essence formula.
Flower Essences contain information of the Life Force of plants at the peak of their flowering period. Through Flower Essence Therapy, at each session you receive specific patterns of Nature’s Intelligence information diluted in water. This life force impacts your energy field, supporting emotional shifts, changes in attitude, renewed mental perspective, spiritual alignment and alignment with the Earth.
How frequently do Flower Essence Therapy Consultations happen?
What does it involve and what is the investment?
- I recommend one session every two to three months
- one and a half hours and your custom essence formula is included
- $125 per session, plus international shipping when applicable
- after the session, you receive by Priority Mail your prepared formula
- you use your essence formula during the time in between our sessions
- we meet again, for continuity, after two to three months
- each session is a new consultation, resulting in a new essence formula
- you are free to choose the frequency and duration of our work together
Your personalized essence formula will support, with precision, the healthy movement of change and growth needed for this cycle in time. While continuity is recommended, you get to choose the frequency and length of the overall process.
Support for your Emotional Life, Self Development and Change
My practice is geared towards emotional and self development support. It is NOT directed towards physical healing, while it does support and enhance all processes of change, including other treatments that involve physical healing.
I support people through challenges, as well as though celebration and joy. My great confidence and fluency in doing this work is regularly confirmed by the constant feedback I receive from my long term clients.
You will always meet the great teachers and masters when you’re ready to learn the lessons they have to teach you. In my case, as far as my experience with Ruth goes, this lesson was mainly the acceptance, and then the celebration of who I am. With all my contradictions, strenghts, challenges, the beauty of being unique, and still part of a whole.
When I started seeing Ruth my perception of self was blurry, defined by other people’s values and expectations which I first tried to mirror and meet, and then rebelled against. I was ashamed of what I perceived to be my shortcomings, and what I perceived to be my strenghts were qualities attributed to me, but which were not who I was.
Flower Essence Therapy helped me recognise the difference between what is me and what isn’t, acknowledge and be grateful for learned behaviours and attitudes which were not mine, but which had served a purpose, and finally help me find what lay hidden behind years of pretending to be nice, pretending I wasn’t hurt or angry or afraid. And without Ruth’s empathy, endless love for what she does and for others, unparalleled knowledge of the flower essences and profound wisdom my journey would’ve been so much longer and harder, not to mention lonely.
Ruth is still with me despite the geographical distance, supporting me in my continous journey towards enlightenment. I feel there’s still a long way to go, but with Ruth’s help I now enjoy treading the path, and life is finally good.
This is what Flower Essence Therapy can do for you.

In what circumstances do clients start working with me?
Most often, but not always, clients first come to me when they are going through significant CHANGE, either chosen or something beyond their control. Or when they REALLY NEED A CHANGE and are open to receiving Nature’s help for that.
LIFE CHANGES, TRANSITION, EMOTIONAL UPSETS
- loss of a loved one, recent or not, (in the extreme, the loss of a child)…
- loss of a relationship, a job, a position in the community
- loss of a home, moving, relocation, change in community
- frustrated expectation of a job promotion, being fired
- starting over after divorce or family trauma, custody battle
- trauma in family relationships, need for healthy boundaries, healing
- shock or trauma, emotional and sometimes also physical
- challenging, painful situations within the family
YEARNING FOR A GOOD RELATIONSHIP, HEALING DEEP PATTERNS
- deep yearning to manifest a relationship, despite repeated frustration
- feeling relationships bring pain and suffering; wanting to unravel underlying patterns, remove blockages to manifest fulfilling relationships
POSITIVE CHANGE, NEED TO STEP UP, GAIN MOMENTUM
- need to step up in one’s career, public speaking, exposure, shining out!
- reinventing oneself, a new life design that integrates full wisdom and gifts
- transition into now job or new life situation, promotion, growth, exposure
- marriage, new family dynamics, new child, integration
I have been working with Ruth since 2008: through Flower Essence Therapy she has been mentoring me on my journey, helping me understand myself and my path.
At first, she helped me see attitudes I held that were repetitively producing results that I did not like. Through our sessions and the essences, I became more aware and I began embodying new attitudes.
Gradually, my life became more aligned: I was blossoming, finding my space, my inner stillness and my joy in sharing who I am!
I went further in deepening my knowledge about myself and, soon enough, I was interacting with the world in a whole new way. New jobs came my way, as well as new friends and a whole range of fresh life opportunities.
After all these years, whenever I find myself confused, she is the first person I think of to guide me. She is not only extremely sensitive and well learned, but she knows flower essences deeply and has a surprising ability to see the synthesis of a situation. She sees what is important, the central point of focus, and she points to what needs to be looked at and worked on deeply.
Recently, I had an experience that totally stirred me emotionally; I was overtaken by it and felt very distressed. I made an appointment with her, and I got to see her that same day, a happy coincidence.
As a result of our conversation, even before I received the essences I overcame that state I was in and I was already seeing the situation in a much more mature way. I became aware of how I needed to not get entangled in situations that were beyond my control and I could not change. I was also able to own the experience of rare beauty I had created for myself and for my life.
Three days later the flower essences arrived and, since then, they have been my saving grace. But the anguish that was consuming me had already gone when our consultation ended! It was magical.

Committed Souls who want to become better human beings
My clients are Committed souls in their mid-thirties and older, who have a professional life and care for self-improvement. They already are on a path of healing and want to move further.
They sense there are deeper patterns still blocking them, and they are ready to unravel and release remains of core wounding that they feel are still holding them back, so they can come out in their full brilliance and share their gifts with the world.
Online Zoom Video Meetings and Priority Mail for Shipping
Here, the ways Technology brings us together is effectively used for Healing! I have a well set up system of using Zoom meetings for our interactive Video live sessions, and I am also well organized to ship your essence combinations, prepared by me, to any address in the United States and to other parts of the world.
Based in Northern California, with clients around the world
I am presently based in Northern California, and I work with English and Portuguese speaking clients mostly located all over the United States, as well as in Europe and Latin America. If you have an internet connection or a phone connection, it is my experience that we can do amazingly deep soul work, with big impact and lasting results, that evolve over time through the use of the essences.
The work of Ruth Toledo Altschuler as a Flower Essence Practitioner and Educator, has inspired me since 1997 when I first met her and sought her work as her Flower Essence Therapy client.
In my heart, I had a strong desire to learn through her experience as a great healer.
And so it was that through a whole decade, I opened myself to her care and I observed her precious and attuned feeling while selecting essences, creating formulas that were as unique as they were powerful. These encounters and formulas supported me through many life passages and transformation, mobilizing within me forces and restoration to a degree that I could not have known existed in my being, so dormant they were within my soul.
My being has flourished through learning with her and, I see in my own action and work as a Flower Essence Practitioner, her delicate presence inspiring me, while I create each flower essence formula with fine artistry, as an alive garden, vibrant and full of possibility of awakening balance and well being in those who reach for my care.

Identifying patterns, offering clear transformational guidance and advice
Each practitioner has a strength, something they are really good at. I can say, with assurance, that my unique gift is my comprehensive precision in identifying patterns. And my warmth and compassion in holding a supportive space, coupled with clarity in offering useful and applicable guidance.
You can count on me as someone who can see the big picture of your journey, supporting with precision your specific cycles of evolutionary movement, aided by the Intelligence of Plants and Flowers.
When I first met with Ruth, it was very clear that she has an extraordinary ability to sort through my complexities, getting to the essence of what was going on with me, to support me with exactly what I needed to take myself to the next level.
The flower essences that she organized for me contained over (20?) essences in it, and when she broke it down for me, it was amazing how precisely she was able to organize these essences into a formula that really resonated with me, where I was, and where I was heading.
