Founder of Taoism, Lao Tzu said, “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are, and you know what you want.” This wisdom applies to our bodies as well. The body knows what it wants, it knows how to heal, and it knows how to communicate when it is out of balance. All we have to do is listen and respond. I am here to listen, to help you tune in to your body, and to help restore balance through acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
At the foundation of Chinese medicine is the understanding that balance is a dynamic state. We are constantly flowing in and out of balance. This is a powerful concept to be aware of. Wellness is an ever-evolving process, composed of many layers. I honor this continuous process of natural change. I am devoted to supporting you on your journey, and to meeting you wherever you’re at each visit.
In 2009, I was living in Bolivia, volunteering with indigenous communities. There, I realized that to thrive and enjoy life fully, we must cherish our health, listen to and honor our bodies, and be proactive in self-care. During my time in Bolivia, I experienced many health issues, particularly digestive. After multiple rounds of antibiotics, I returned home weakened, and deficient. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine were integral in restoring my health, replenishing what had been depleted, and providing the stepping stones to a better state of well-being than I had ever experienced.
It was then that I decided to embark on this journey to be of service to those seeking wellness. I am a firm believer that we all have a responsibility to self-care, and a right to receive high quality support along our journey toward holistic health. Working with others to achieve and sustain holistic well-being is what gives me life. I look forward to working in a partnership with you to help you achieve the health you seek – mind, body, and spirit.

Because No One Can Be a Master of Everything

I specialize in these areas:

Pain Management – Chinese medicine views pain as a blockage or area of stagnation in the body, and aims to reinstate the body’s natural energy flow, thereby relieving the pain and allowing the surrounding tissues to heal. Whether you’re experiencing pain due to muscle tension, acute injury, chronic discomfort, or general inflammation, there is a good chance acupuncture and herbs can help.

Stress Management and Emotional Support – When not processed properly, emotions can manifest physically in the body. With so much going on in our daily lives and in the world, it can be challenging to find the time to stop and check in with ourselves. Tuning in to our emotions can be a lot easier said than done, but it is essential to bringing our bodies back into balance. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help in your journey to dealing with and processing emotions in a healthy way.

Digestive Health – Our digestive system is arguably the most important organ system in the body, according to Chinese medicine. Issues in the digestive tract can lead to problems throughout the body, which is why we often start our treatment plan by cleaning up the diet and incorporating ways to strengthen digestion. Acupuncture, herbs, and diet therapy can help bring the body back into balance, and restore our digestion so we can be nourished.
