If you are feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, or unable to move forward, I will stand beside you and encourage you to rediscover the joy of life. Whether you are suffering from chronic pain, depression, or the flu, I will treat you as an individual and address any imbalances that you are experiencing right now. I use acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, gemstone therapy, massage and more to best support and restore balance to your body, mind and spirit.
My goal is to serve as a supportive guide as you travel the path to a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life. While seeking my own path, I discovered the ancient art and science of Chinese medicine. Based upon the interactions of our natural world, this medicine is rooted in the philosophy that every living thing is enlivened by a vital energy, known as Qi, which connects us to one another, and to the world around us. In these hectic times, it is easy to become disconnected, creating disease and despair. Together, we can find a way to help you reconnect and restore balance in your life.
Born into a family with long roots in healthcare, I had the privilege of witnessing the compassion and respect my parents gave to patients as they supported them in healing. From an early age, I knew that my purpose was to do the same. I grew up in Walla Walla, Washington, where I was awestruck and inspired by the beauty and diversity in nature that could be found within hours of my home. In Chinese medicine, I discovered that the beauty of nature lies at the heart of healing, and these two forces in my life were united.
When not practicing Chinese medicine, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Josh, and our furry kids, Roland, Lily and Kona. I also love walking in the woods, lying on the beach, good fantasy and science fiction movies, and traveling to places with really delicious food.
