I’m a native to the Pacific Northwest, born in Alaska and raised in northern Idaho. I have always lived close to nature and believe it is our greatest teacher. I moved to Portland after receiving my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2008.
The very same curiosity of mechanics and structures that led me to engineering, also led me to Chinese medicine. In 2018, I graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), with my Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.
As a Chinese medicine practitioner, I approach the body in terms of systems and functional relationships, just as I would approach a system as an engineer. In my clinical practice, my treatments are designed to reestablish health within and between all body systems. Chinese herbalism, acupuncture and nutritional supplementation are the basis of my treatment approach. My Chinese herbal prescriptions are based on the herbal formulaic approach practiced and taught by Dr. Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc.
In addition to my acupuncture license, I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in European osteopathic techniques. I have studied with a variety of practitioners, with my greatest influence being Jeffrey Burch, LMT. With Jeffrey, I developed my functional method techniques, including cranial and visceral manipulations
