In addition to offering healing sessions with our proprietress, Ylva Mara, The Cunning Crow Apothecary has community practitioners of various healing modalities available each day of the week. You can find more information about all our current practitioners below.
Ylva Mara Radziszewski | The Cunning Crow | Crow Song Healing Arts
I approach my work with a commitment to further understand how access to wellness and traditions of magic is complicated by and interconnected with the violence of settler-colonial, cis/het centric, ableist, white supremacy and capitalism; centering my practice in service to those most affected by these systems of oppression.
As someone who was raised outside of my Romani culture due to colonialism, genocide, diaspora, and white supremacy and as someone who benefits from gadjeness and white privilege, my work focuses on magic as reparation, service, and radical resistance.
My altar centers supporting BIPOC community members, sex workers, survivors of trauma & abuse, survivors of incest & assualt, chronically ill folx, Trans & Non-Binary specific health concerns, addiction recovery, and folks navigating the complexity of mental health concerns.

Our Current Community Practitioners...
Lil Kay | Massage Therapist, Witch, & Energy Worker | Sundays & Mondays
My name is Lil (she/her) and I am a queer femme licensed massage therapist, practicing witch and energy worker. I have practiced divination and energy work for over a decade and became a bodyworker after a lifelong fascination with the ways in which our bodies retain memory. It is my ideology that healthcare is inherently political, and I honor the intricate ways in which supremacy and trauma inform our own highly individualized relationships to healing, magic, and being in our bodies.
My core belief is that each one of us in our own expert on what we need. It is my honor as a practitioner to help hold space for your healing process--you are the one doing the work. All bodies are vessels of change, magic, grief, movement, and vast, blooming opportunity to heal. I am incredibly grateful to help facilitate that journey.
Ritual bodywork session may include:
Kiki Robinson | Opulent Witch | Wednesdays
I'm a witch, artist, tarot reader, freaky Starseed and psychic medium. I started building my professional healing practice in 2014, but I have always been a witch ad expressed the fierce magic of my Ancestors. I carry Irish/British Isles and Romani diaspora ancestry in my body. I am a multi-disciplinary artist and dancer. My intention is to embody and channel the divine through my creations. I live on occupied Duwamish land, also known as Seattle. My altar is centered in sovereignty, courage, hearth-truth and compassion. My work in the world involved assisting in healing and liberating the Collective, disrupting and dismantling oppressive systems, and transformation through creative modalities. I am deeply committed to community healing and magical transformation.

Allison Buchbinder | Hair Witch | Decrystalizing Hair Liberation | June 17th
My name is Allison (she/her) and I have been a practicing hairdresser for nearly a decade, and I have been a practicing generational witch for longer. It runs in my family. I am a Jewish WItch of Ashkenazi decent, and am currently living on occupied Duwamish and Coast Salish land.
My approach to hairdressing and as a healer is transformational, heart centered, pro intersectional, and is about assisting you in seeing your full self clearly. My work as a healer is about supporting you on your journey to self liberation, self love, and helping you move through self sabotaging thought forms.
Decrystalizing hair cutting sessions will transform your locks by the means of moving blocked and stagnant energy from your energetic body, the use of ritualistic hair brushing, and cutting your hair to cut out what no longer serves you.
Dilshad Mehta | Intuitive Reader, Personal Mentor, & Soul Friend | June 1st, 8th, 15th, & 22nd
My name is Dilshad; it means “happy heart”. I’m an intuitive reader, poet, and a magus witch. My heritage is Zoroastrian - the line of magis aka magus.
The way I serve is through truth, integration, and healing. And so, I’ve crafted the process of readings with this in mind. Each reading has 2 parts to it - (1) dedicated time just for readings (2) dedicated time for questions. Doing it this way lets spirit deliver what it needs to without interruption, gives you time to really integrate your reading, and then gives you time to talk through what you need to. It’s a way of practicing being in a relationship with spirit and sitting in that energy for longer.
I also accommodate the traditional style of reading if the process above doesn't work for you.
Healing Craft Student Clinic | 3rd Sundays of the Month
Supervised, student led clinic days offer a sacred space for students of the School of Traditional Magic to practice their Healing Craft and build confidence in their altars. These clinics will offer multiple opportunities for students to meet clients, develop a treatment plan and implement their Healing Craft while under supervision. For clients, sessions may include energy clearing, divination/intuitive reading, spiritual guidance, guidance around custom ritual/spell work, crafting custom spells/rituals, herbal recommendations, and other delights specific to the student practitioner. All clinics will be on a donation basis; recommended sliding scale of $0-$125 per session (no one turned away for lack of funds).
