Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist
My interest in Chinese Medicine began as a teenager while considering Allopathic Medicine as a career. During this time my fascination in reading philosophical works from different cultures was blooming. Along with a deep interest in herbal medicine, these holistic and natural views on life and health are what inspired me to pursue the study of Chinese Medicine.
In 2002 I earned a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University where I was also introduced to Five Element Acupuncture. In 2004 I completed a 2 year post graduate course in Five Element Acupuncture. This study largely influenced the way I practice, including formalizing diagnosis based on the evaluation of pulses and synthesizing disease and health from the point of view of a deeply rich and vast traditional form of medicine.
My practice is devoted to encouraging health and supporting the well being of my patients using acupuncture, herbs, qi gong, reiki and yoga. I have been practicing at the Stram Center for Integrative Medicine since its inception in 2003.
I am experienced in treating pain, digestive disorders, symptoms of lyme disease, allergies, asthma, stress, anxiety, depression, headaches, and supporting the cancer patient.
My field of expertise is in the treatment and support of infertility and women’s health including irregular menstruation, hormonal imbalance, cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, menopause, and painful menstruation.
In addition to providing private acupuncture treatments I offer community acupuncture. In 2009 I developed community acupuncture at the Stram Center in response to my patients needs. These types of sessions enable patients to receive the multiple acupuncture sessions that are needed for a full course of treatment at a lower fee.Experience:
