Karen Steuer


It’s my pleasure to continue the beautiful journey Sheryl Burns started here at Tangled Roots Herbal. I come at herbalism through nearly 20 years of self-study and using herbs and botanicals to build a thriving soap and skincare business (Hemlock Springs Soaps).

My background couldn’t be more removed from Herbalism…I started my professional life in college admissions, flirted with corporate sales (and didn’t really enjoy it!) and spent several years as a Training Consultant for a large University in Boston. After that, I spent a few years working with school districts around the country creating professional development training programs for K-12 teachers.

But herbalism and working with natural ingredients has always been something I’ve just done. I started making soap in 1999, and fell in love with the process and the possibilities. Then I started to learn how to make creams, lotions, balms, salves, tinctures, natural cleaning products and then in 2013 took my passion full time and spent the past 5+ years building Hemlock Springs Soaps.

A chance conversation with Sheryl in the spring of 2018 lead my husband (Paul) and I to seriously consider stepping into the huge shoes Sheryl and Tim created here, and became official in November 2018.

I’m ever so thankful for the warm welcome, and hope to spread the warm embrace, learn from you and with you as my journey here begins.


Christine Lenihan

Reader (Tarot, Palmistry, Psychometry), Reiki Master, Health Coach

Christine is an empath, energy healer and Traditionalist Witch High Priestess. Since a young age she knew she was an intuitive and learned that this gift was passed down through her maternal linage. Growing up with Irish & English heritage she was always drawn to the Celtic lore and she is now a Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid High Priestess and runs her own coven locally.

Learning Palmistry was a true passion for Christine. Discovering what the lines, mounts and symbols mean in the hand of family and friends sparked a desire to help other find what their lines means to them. She loves helping people connect authentically with themselves.

Christine is also talented in the Tarot and has been reading for over 20 years. She has helped numerous people from all around the world when she worked in Salem, MA connect to their intuition and guide them on their path, whether it was work, love or other desires. Using Tarot is a simple but effective way to tap into your intuition and find your spark for life.

Christine is also gifted with Psychometry. What is Psychometry you ask? Simple answer: It is the ability to discover facts about an event or person by touching inanimate objects associated with them. Have an item you can carry into the shop and Christine will be able to read the energy of the object.

Christine strives to help others not only find peace in their spirituality but also within their physical body. As a Certified Independent Health Coach with Optavia, she will coach and guide you to achieve one healthy habit at a time striving to reach Optimal Health and a better lifestyle.

Lori Haynes

Reader (Psychic, Past Lives, Medium), Energy Worker

 Lori Haynes saw “ people “ when she was a child. She was raised in a
strict  Christian household and was told that it was her imagination.  So she
only allowed herself to see and talk to her guardian Angel Seraphiel who would surround her in a blue orb of light when she was in dangerous situations.
Her greatest love as a child was playing and exploring the forest behind her
home, climbing trees, and lying in the curvature of the branches where she
felt nourished and nurtured. In her teenage years, she would take her journal and
pen into the woods by a large pond, and sat on a large stone to write poetry.

           At the age of 18, her grandfather came into her room while she was
sleeping and kissed her forehead, and said “ good night.” She learned the following morning that her grandfather had died the night before. Her Mother also visited Lori one week after her early transition at the age of 47. She stroked her hair, and told her “ I’m proud of the mother that you have become.” Lori felt so much comfort, knowing that they were still with her.

           When she turned 47, Lori began talking classes on meditation and intuitive
development. She also went to the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy,
receiving certification in Massage as well as Reiki. At this time in her life, she
began seeing “spirit people “ when she was giving massages.
One day Gabriel whispered in her ear, “ Lori, mediumship is healing!”
It was then that she found her “ tribe” at The Sarasota Center of Light.

            It was there that she received certification as a “ Vibrational Healer”,
and after 4 years of training, classes, tests, platform messages at S.C.O.L.
as well as monthly readings on “ Psychic Saturdays” she received her certification
in Mediumship.  Lori moved to Nashua N.H. in 2017 and began her employment
at Tangledrootsherbal. She works with a group of Angelic, and galactic beings,
who call themselves “ The Guardians of Light.” Her greatest joy is to empower
her clients in understanding their intuitive gifts and loves teaching people how to
develop their 6 senses.

            Lori also enjoys being a channel of healing using sound and energy work.
Her daily dose of meditation and heart/ brain coherence breath work keep her in balance and harmony. She continues to take online classes to improve her services.

 Lori is also an “ Emissary” for the Heart Math Institute.


Mary Hudson

Mary Hudson - The Fey Dragon

Meet Mary of The Fey Dragon; she is one of our regular readers who does much more than just tarot readings.
Mary has been a student of the spiritual world most of her life, gaining knowledge on multiple subjects while acquiring the titles Druid, Elder, and High Priestess. She began her formal training in magical and esoteric practices studying Hermetic philosophies and practices which led to her initiation as High Priestess. This is the foundation of a great many of her esoteric practices.

Her later studies were based in her own heritage as someone of Scottish ancestry. Because of her intense interest in her own history and ever developing spiritual practices, she earned a Doctorate in Druidic Studies while studying to become a Master Druid.
In 2010 Mary became the President of The Church of the Greenwood. It was through the CotG that she became fully ordained clergy and subsequently appointed as the Pagan Chaplain at the Syracuse University - the only Pagan Chaplain in higher education in the United States.

Mary and her husband chose to retire in 2020. Currently they have found their forever home here in New Hampshire and she now feels a spiritual responsibility to share what knowledge she has gained while continuing to learn herself.

Mary fully and joyfully admits that she doesn’t know everything and that there is much left her to learn. In her own words she knows what she knows, she knows what she doesn’t know, and she will be honest about what those two things are.
