I focus on treating women’s health, particularly fertility and pregnancy, as well as pain and injuries. I also enjoy treating pediatrics, headaches, smoking cessation, and emotional, sleep, digestive, and skin issues.
Depending on your needs, your unique treatment plan may include one or more of these modalities:
• Integrative acupuncture combining Worsley Five Element with Classical Chinese acupuncture
• Chinese herbal medicine
• Cupping (tension-releasing and great for colds and flus, muscle tension, and detoxification)
• Electric stimulation
• Gua sha
• Hunyuan herbalism
• Lifestyle counseling
• Meridian massage
• Mineral heat therapy
• Moxibustion (many forms of relaxing warmth)
• Qigong instruction
• Shiatsu or tui na massage
• Shonishin therapy
• Western and Oriental dietary therapy
Education and experience
I earned my Masters of Acupuncture from the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM), where I was trained in Oriental medicine, with a focus on classical Chinese medicine, as well as Western medical sciences. I am on the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and I am board-certified in Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine, and Chinese Herbology. Currently, I am enrolled at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in the Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program, which focuses on women’s health, pain/injury, and healthy aging.
My appreciation for the intricate relationship between the human body and nature is partially rooted in my Bachelor’s in biology with an emphasis in ecology from Viterbo University, as well as my frequent time spent in nature. My passion for the linguistic and cultural beauty of Chinese medicine stems from my love of world travel, ancient cultures, and the Spanish language.
Outside of work
I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I love to hike, travel, do qigong and yoga, swim, play piano, enjoy the rich music and arts culture of Portland, and spend time with my daughter.
