At Woodland Naturals, we respect and believe in the body’s innate wisdom and natural ability to find health and achieve balance.

During an initial consultation, we will review a detailed health history questionnaire so that I can get to know you as a person. We will discuss what is happening in your life, your current state of health, medical history, and any specific symptoms that have brought you to seek my advice. The goal is to get a complete picture of each individual’s needs, which enables me to tailor suggestions to you as an individual. Suggestions could include herbs, supplements, bodywork, and many other healing techniques. The emphasis will be on creating a total wellness plan for each client, as opposed to a treatment plan for your symptoms. Woodland Naturals will also offer information on various modalities that would be helpful in the treatment of your health care issues, referring you to other practitioners whenever appropriate.
Consultations are educational in nature, intended to make you aware of the nutritional and other beneficial effects of diet, lifestyle changes, herbs, or herbal formulas, and other healing techniques. As a client, you take the responsibility for deciding what is right for you and whether or not you wish to use the herbs/therapies that are recommended.
