Greetings from Laraine!
Thank you for visiting my website, Resources for Living Well.

I have recently retired from teaching my nationally endorsed Integrative Aromatherapy Certificate Program.  I invite you to explore aromatherapy articles I have written through the years, that are available through the Resources tab.  Check back periodically, as I plan to add to these soon.

I continue to endorse the many benefits of essential oils used for personal health and joy of living, as well as addressing chronic medical conditions as additional complementary and integrative components of care.

As I move into my elder-years, I am grateful for all of the wellness trainings and certifications I have received, in addition to my work as a Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist.  I am frequently available to consult regarding Palliative Care and end-of-life support.

I enjoy the gift of increased discretionary time for more exercise, meditation, reading, community involvement, and gardening, as well as quality time with family and friends!

To be sure, I enjoy staying in touch with former students and professional colleagues.I can be contacted through Facebook or Linked In, or at
