If you are looking for a place to start evaluating your overall health while informing your nutritional health plan, you've come to the right place. I strongly believe in the ability of acupuncture, functional nutrition, herbal therapy, and hypnosis to build and support a solid foundation of primary immunity and enjoy giving my clients the natural tools by which to feel their own strength and vibrant humanity.
At the Heart of Healing
My approach to patient care involves a merging of the medical knowledge I've developed with my intuitive abilities. I value and encourage the development of what Chinese medicine refers to as Zheng Qi, or strong life-affirming upright qi, and what western medicine refers to as the immune system. Through Chinese medical diagnosis we will seek to understand where basic imbalances reside in your body.
If you are in for acupuncture, you will receive a traditional Chinese medical treatment that may also include cupping, guasha, massage, Tibetan singing bowl therapy, infrared heat, as well as herbal and dietary recommendations. If you have scheduled a telehealth herbal consultation appointment, once we have a clear snapshot of your body's story, you will receive a personalized comprehensive initial treatment plan involving recommended diet and lifestyle changes and a custom prescription involving food-based vitamin/mineral supplements and a combination of Chinese, western and Native herbs. If you have completed a complementary hypnosis discovery call and we have concluded that hypnosis is a good fit for you, no matter where you are located, I will be happy to guide you through the beautiful process of rewiring your brain for success and happiness.
I am your health partner. I am here to listen to you, to provide an objective and educated approach to how you can heal and find your way to a healthier and more inspired life. Let's get started!
You will find that I practice from a trauma-informed perspective. I specialize in chronic pain and internal disorders that are frequently associated with mental/emotional disorders with underlying post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I have worked extensively with our Military Veterans and am pleased to be able to apply these skills learned to a virtual practice.
