Hi there! 

I'm Shannon Marone

I'm so glad you found your way here. Life is a wild ride filled with twists and turns. We all need help, support and guidance from time to time. I believe that our struggles and emotions are part of being human and do not always need to be pathologized or diagnosed. Rather than define myself by the letters after my name, I'd rather you know that I am a remember-er of magic, a believer in earth's medicine, a life longer learner, animal communicator, and recovering perfectionist.

For my astro pals, I'm a Scorpio Sun, Aquarius Moon, & Pisces Rising.
