Sylvia has been clinical dietitian, nutritionist and certified diabetes educator for over 25 years. A native Vermonter, she returned to the Central Vermont area in 1991 to work for Central Vermont Medical Center as a clinical nutritionist and manager.  Pursuing a lifelong interest in traditional healing modalities and alternative health, she went on to study herbalism and energy healing modalities including Reiki and Alchemical Healing. She has added coaching and hypnosis to her skill set to assist her clients in navigating behavior change. While still maintaining employment with Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing on a part-time basis, she founded Sylvia Gaboriault Wellness Services, an independent clinical practice.  Here, she blends science and traditional wisdom, utilizing the best of both worlds to help others achieve wellness.
