I initially sought acupuncture because I was going through fertility treatments and, through research, found that acupuncture could support my ability to conceive. Kate has treated me through a variety of IVF procedures, and I can honestly say she is an important part of why I have been able to start a family. Even when I took a break from fertility treatments, though, I stayed with Kate as my acupuncturist over a long period of time because she also treats my asthma/allergies, has helped heal broken bones and sprains, and even supports my emotional well-being if that is what I need. I feel overall better and mentally fresh after each session and would highly recommend Kate as an acupuncturist (and have to many friends). Beyond supporting my physical wellness, what makes Kate special is that she provides her services in a nurturing and educational way. She is always happy to explain why she is focusing on a certain point, what it is called, what it means in Chinese medicine, how that relates to Western medicine, and what else I can do to support my own well-being. I am continually impressed with Kate's ongoing self-education - it seems like she is constantly taking a variety of classes or reading new research to further her practice and help her clients. Kate's tone and style are gentle, caring, and humorous, and I greatly look forward to my sessions with her. I know I'll benefit from the treatment, and I also feel I can openly and honestly share what has been happening with my body and mind since I last saw her. I always leave our sessions feeling healthier, clearer and more focused. She is a terrific acupuncturist and a real touchstone in my life, which is why I recommend her whenever I think a friend would benefit from her services.
When I fist met Kate, I didn't know that she was going to have such a profound and positive impact on my life. My first impression of her wasn't wrong; she was kind, caring, insightful, intelligent, and had a way about her that made you feel like everything would be okay. My health has drastically improved since I began treatments, and she was a vital element in my healthcare team while I was battling cancer in 2014. I believe that our sessions while I was undergoing chemotherapy and radiation made all the difference in how well I handled my cancer treatments. Kate helped my body manage the swelling and pain that came post-surgery and during radiation. While going through chemotherapy, she was a godsend! Our sessions dealt with some of the "normal side effects" of cancer treatment that I was experiencing: headaches, muscle and joint pain, neuropathy, digestive and mouth issues, and the never-ending fatigue. Her treatments focused on helping my body be strong enough to continue fighting the good fight. Kate always remained positive, and often bolstered my spirits along with helping me find some calm amongst the chaos. I consider Kate, and her treatments, to be one of the best things that's ever happened in my life. I would, and often do, recommend her to anyone looking to improve their overall health, peace of mind, and quality of life.
In 2006 or 2007 the tendonitis in my ring finger in both hands came back. The pain was really bad and I did not want to receive another dose of steroid injections so I decided to seek acupuncture treatment. At that time my friend highly recommended Kate and I’ve been seeing her since then. Thanks to her acupuncture treatment, my tendonitis is under control. Initially I went to acupuncture for the pain in my wrists, elbows, and knees. Now I go to acupuncture to address my health issues ranging from joint pains to tiredness and sinus/allergy related issues. The overall experience is great because Kate is a very attentive listener with whatever issues I came in for and she answers all my questions about my acupuncture treatment. She’s very good at locating the acupuncture points. I always look forward to my appointments and I feel a lot better (e.g. my joint pains gone, more energy, in a better mood) afterwards. The treatments have improved my life physically and mentally. I have changed my attitude on treating my whole body health instead of treating just the symptoms. Also I use the acupuncture treatments with Kate to help remind myself to be kinder to myself and to pay more attention to what my body needs.

About me

Kate practices Five Element Acupuncture, a holistic system of health care based on the laws of nature. She tailors each treatment to the needs of the individual and aims to alleviate the energetic imbalances at the root of the patient's symptoms. Additionally, she helps her patients to discover new self-care strategies that sustain their progress toward greater overall vitality. Her aim is to help each patient channel this new vitality toward living in more fulfilling, authentic, and impassioned ways. Kate brings to her work great enthusiasm for the practice of acupuncture, a gentle touch, and a deep commitment to supporting her patients' healing journeys.
Kate joined the Teal Center in 2001, first practicing as a massage therapist. After receiving her Master of Acupuncture degree from Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts (now the Maryland University of Integrative Health) in Laurel, Md. in 2005, she began practicing acupuncture exclusively. Since graduation, she has completed additional courses in auricular acupuncture, acupuncture for the cancer patient, acupuncture in the treatment of allergies, acupressure techniques for treating children, qigong for breast health, and addressing PTSD with complementary therapies.

Kate is one of the kindest, most patient, positive people I know. Using acupuncture, she helped me through some very difficult physical and emotional periods in my life, and I could not recommend her enough to others.
About thirty years ago Kate's cardiologist father performed an angiogram that revealed that I had very serious arteriosclerosis and severe heart disease. I chose not to seek a surgical solution, but rather supplemented my pharmaceutical regime with an alternative medicine, holistic approach with significant lifestyle improvements. This path eventually led me to Kate...first in massage therapy and then acupuncture. Kate's treatments led to a reduction in my blood pressure medication with more stable readings. Her holistic, mind-body approach have helped with other health issues, and I believe strengthened my body's ability to help cure itself. Now at age 81, I see Kate on a routine "preventive" basis which helps keep me healthy in many ways.
For me, acupuncture with Kate has alleviated or reduced symptoms of a variety of health issues, especially some chronic ones – such as PTSD, migraines, poor sleep, stress, muscle pain, etc. And I truly enjoy my time with Kate, finding her to be a skillful listener, deeply empathetic, wise, and giving of concentrated attention. Kate is dedicated to my recovering health and a life in balance; I am grateful to her for an improved quality of life that I never thought I’d achieve.
