Shona consults with clients at her office on 19 Court Street, Montpelier Vermont. Please contact her to make an appointment.
Being an herbalist, Shona addresses the root of a problem, helping you to be in touch with yourself and listen to your body. During this journey, you have an opportunity to take control of your health, perhaps for the first time. Shona involves her clients in helping them make lifestyle changes appropriate for the individual which can lead to an openness to different ideas and experiences. This allows for growth and healing during the journey to wellness. For each person this path is different.
During the consultation process, Shona will talk about herbs that are relevant for your needs, as well as diet, exercise, stress management, supplements, homeopathy, bodywork, and spirituality changes that might be helpful to you. Your plan is tailored to you. Shona will want to hear your story. Identifying what led you to this place is often a part of the healing journey.
You may learn new techniques for dealing with stress or acquire new daily habits that leave you feeling improved. You may find that eliminating certain foods causes your headaches to disappear or your heartburn to go away. You may discover that eating a diet of whole foods leaves you feeling great and that the food that was such an integral part of your diet is not even missed. This journey can be work and requires a commitment. The result is often a newfound respect for life, medicine, food, and most importantly, yourself. For some this path is easy, and for others it can be challenging. Shona will do her best to support your needs during this process.
Shona has experience working with Medical Doctors, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Midwives and more. She can work directly with you or help to coordinate care with your medical providers.
