Dr. Emily Maiella
Trained as a naturopathic primary care physician, Dr. Maiella enjoys visits with the entire family, including infants, children, adults of all ages and pregnant/postpartum mothers.
Her specialties include the treatment of Lyme disease and long standing infections. She begins by reminding her patients that their bodies are wise and capable of healing, given the right environment/opportunity. (The Vis Medicatrix Naturae). Together, Dr. Maiella and her patients create a plan that focuses on balance and restoration the body. This may include using a variety of natural plant-based anti-microbials/immune modulators, detoxification of heavy metals and toxins, dental health analysis, gastrointestinal healing and psycho-emotional-spiritual work.
Dr. Maiella uses Autonomic Response testing (ART), as part of a toolbox for guiding the treatments and diagnosis. Please read about this assessment tool here.
The use of ART helps to identify organ dysfunction, infection and toxicity as well as facilitate communication from the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious. With your permission, Dr. Maiella helps her patients to identify and resolve traumas/conflicts using EMDR/EMDR Intenstives, psychokinesiology (PK), mental field therapy (MFT), color therapy, eye movements and generational genograms. You may be asked to dedicate a few visits just to focus on this work.
Your self reflection and inner work will synergize and strengthen all other suggested treatments.
Dr. Maiella loves living close to nature by growing organic vegetables and fruits, and being a graceful steward of the earth. She loves nurturing all things natural and wild, including (but not limited to) her bees and kids (humans and goats).

Dr. Marc Simon ND
There is nothing more exciting to me than the idea of being in a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. As a person who is passionate about medicine, I enjoy seeing others free of discomfort. The field of medicine is particularly attractive to me because, due to my upbringing in Haiti, I have witnessed many people with chronic ailments. From early in my childhood, I was exposed to medicine, though through a different avenue. My father was a veterinarian, and by working with him, I witnessed how diseases destroyed the lives of animals. I used to help mother cooked and distributed food to innate and less fortunate people in my community. I learned the lessen of treating all lives with respect and helping them with their needs. Based on these experiences with my parents, I wished to combine my interest in science and medicine with my desire to care for people. Therefore, I pursued a formal education in human medicine.
I attended the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy at the University State of Haiti, where I obtained my medical degree. I worked as a general practitioner and assistant medical director for several United States non-profit organizations stationed in my home country. Working for five years with US physicians, I learned a great deal about practicing medicine and became acquainted with American culture. It helped me with a difficult transition as I moved to New York to be with my lovely wife, Wass and my two sons, Andy and Aiden.
I decided to make the transition from conventional medicine to naturopathic medicine as I think the conventional approach towards disease symptoms must be changed. I graduated from the University of Bridgeport, CT College of Naturopathic Medicine with a dual degree, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Nutrition, I decided to move with my family to Vermont which my youngest son, Aiden called “our sweet and lovely home.” My family and I enjoy Vermont. It is a welcoming place. We love going out every weekend for hiking, exploring, eating, watching movies and so on.
I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds. I have a passion for all chronic health conditions, but I enjoy seeing individuals suffering from diabetes, gastrointestinal diseases, heart disease, obesity, cancer, autoimmune disease, adrenal or hormonal imbalance (men and women health).
I believe that good and healthy food is one of the most important aspects in people’s growth, health and wellbeing. By providing the necessary nutrients, “the body has the ability to heal itself.” Thousand years ago, indigenous people used natural food in its integral aspect of healing. Nowadays, our plate is made of chemical-based food which are more often the cause of degenerative and autoimmune diseases. So, it is important to return to the indigenous period by promoting chemical-free foods to solve the phenomenon of degenerative conditions.
My experience with both the conventional and the integral aspects of Medicine put me in an ideal position to assist my patients and work in association with other practitioners.
Dr. Simon is now taking new primary care patients, from VT Medicaid, BCBS Vt, MVP and Cigna.
