NESH Alumni Practitioner Directory Listing

After piloting the Integrative Medicine Residency at NUNM, in 1999, I returned to my native New England to join the first naturopathic medical clinic in Rhode Island, which became Providence Wholistic Healthcare, a haven for naturopathic medicine, Bowenwork and acupuncture. I love exploring the amazing power of natural remedies in private practice where I focus on treating, educating, and empowering clients to embrace their healing journeys assisted by our gentle gems – listening, touch, water therapy, food, herbs and, the most joyous, the homeopathic similimum. I’m honored to share these remarkably simple, deeply harmonizing medicines with folks on the holistic path. I am grateful for, and indebted to, my elders who enthusiastically share their wisdom, and continue to inspire me and future generation of healers. In aspiring to carry our tradition forward, I have offered educational presentations on naturopathic and homeopathic approaches to healing for patient-centered and professional medical audiences alike throughout my career.

Sharing a celebration of life

My hobbies are as varied as our naturopathic modalities. My deepest rejuvenations are instilled by immersions in great outdoors, long weekend waterway walks or by soaking up sea, sun and breezes on Cape Cod excursions. More commonly I’m digging in soil, cultivating porch pots or windowsill houseplants while restoring my mind. Craving aesthetic creations, I indulge in ocular feasts on screens and in museums, in vinyl auditory escapades, and by devouring little-known literary works by women writers. Like nature’s offerings, artistic gems feed my soul, which are all the brighter when shared with special friends.

Sheila joined us twice for the NESH Two Year Course in Amherst, MA. Once from 2001-2003 and again 2008-10.
