I first discovered Chinese medicine like many others; as a result of having exhausted a list of possible solutions proposed by doctors and a subsequent disillusionment with traditional western medicine. I was thankful to have been guided towards Chinese medicine, which offered me a holistic, balanced and gentle way of viewing my health and healing. I was so amazed by and curious about how these tiny, hair like needles and earthy tasting herbal teas could help me in such a broad way (from anxiety to tendonitis) that I decided to dive in deeper and learn more.
Since the onset of my education in Chinese medicine, I've been motivated to share what I've learned with anyone in need of healing. One of the most amazing things about this medicine is how it fully engages the patient in order to be truly effective and long lasting. Many of us need to shift the way we've been approaching health and healing; moving away from a strictly pharmacological approach (a pill for this, a pill for that). Through physically feeling how acupuncture can bring the body back to balance, Chinese medicine empowers each individual to change their lifestyle and take control of their health; whether through nutrition, sleep health, movement, stress reduction or in learning how to connect the dots between mind and body.
I’m excited to be practicing at clinics where we work with you to make Chinese medicine accessible and easy to incorporate into your lifestyle. While my acupuncture training has equipped me with the tools to treat a wide range of concerns ranging from migraines to joint pain to the common cold, I am most passionate about helping individuals reconnect with their mental & emotional health, balancing reproductive and hormonal wellness, LGBTQ+ healthcare, and in the collective treatment and recovery of eating disorders.
I look forward to seeing you in the clinic and collaborating with you to achieve you health and wellness goals.
