Google+ What I Made Today: My Wellness Offerings

My Wellness Offerings


Holistic Wellness Consultations, Classes, Workshops are offered at my studio at Whiting Mills, 100 Whiting Street in sunny Winsted, Connecticut.

One-on-One Holistic Wellness Services

Initial Wellness Consultations are $65 ~ and are customized for you. Sessions generally take 90-120 minutes as we explore together the holistic landscape of your wellness needs, desires and dreams. Together we'll work up a practice to support you in your personal challenges, and we'll work together in ways that empower you to nurture balance, harmony and wellness in the choices that you make - that they may best serve you and the goals you set for yourSelf.

All subsequent one-on-one private sessions ~ in person or over the phone ~ are charged at $60 per hour rate, adjusted for shorter sessions. Most follow-up visits average $35 (35-minutes), or less.

This includes all flavors of holistic wellness consultations that I offer, including herbal consultations, garden-to-food, private teaching sessions, healing sessions, creative heART expression and customized intuitive readings. Group classes and workshops are offered separately (see below), though consultations can be highly educational ~ in fact, that's my intention!

I'd LoVe to work with you, so I invite you to contact me if you're interested in a private wellness session!

Keep in mind that you may realize benefits from a wellness session even if you are healthy and well ~ in fact, that's what I'm all about! As I have said for years … don't wait to get sick to Be Well.

All sessions are By Appointment Only. Phone consultations also available.

















Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness

Herbal Courses of Study, Learning and Experience
In addition to workshops, Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness offers herbal studies in a combination of Core Classes, Workshops and Apprentices Time, all of which may be taken as purely as desired without interested in certification, or with an objective to obtain a Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness certification - your choice.

The reason for choice is, as I stress in our Introduction to Herbal Studies, herbalism is The Medicine of the People, there are neither certification nor licensing requirements to practice herbalism in the United States, and this is as it should be.

In any event, you will begin your studies with the Introduction to Herbal Studies class, which offers you insight into the total curriculum (which is adaptable for Self Study). This Intro Class also introduces you to my teaching style and herbal approach and is intended to ensure that this course of study, and the teacher, is the "good fit" for you before committing to further studies. Once you’ve taken the Introduction Class, you may join the Core Classes at any time, in any part of their rotation, within a year from the date of your Introduction class. If you miss a class, you simply catch it when it rotates around again, within the year. Make sense? Also, Workshops may be taken and Apprentice Time may be scheduled at any time.

Core Classes are typically scheduled on Thursday evenings, every two to three weeks, and are cyclical - meaning they repeat every year (at least once a year). You may request a Core Class and we’ll do our best to fit it in at the earliest Thursday evening slot. This means if you miss one, you may catch it in the next cycle or on request. Make sense?

Walk in the Woods School of Herbal Wellness offers a certificate of completion that is awarded upon fulfillment of the Core and Workshop requirements as outlined below, including 25 hours of Apprentice time and ongoing demonstration of mastery. Commitment to the certification program is not required and need not hinder you from exploring any of these classes. Your herbal studies may be pursued over as much time as desired or needed, allowing for flexibility of schedule, commitment and financial considerations.
