My journey into Chinese medicine began while working at an acupuncture clinic during a transition in my life. While working there, I could see all of the wonderful benefits of this ancient medicine. I was drawn to the holistic approach of treating the mind and body as one rather than treating just the symptom. After receiving acupuncture for the first time and experiencing a sense of calm and relaxation from the treatment, I knew I needed to have this ability to regulate the nervous system for our busy modern lives. 

I graduated from Pacific College of Health and Sciences (PCHS) in New York City and devoted the past eight years of my life to studying this medicine. After graduating from school, most of my patients were coming in for pain, so I've made it my mission to understand how the anatomy of the body functions and how it also fails each of us, causing us pain and discomfort. I completed extensive training in treating musculoskeletal and pain conditions using Neurofunctional Acupuncture and Trigger Point or Dry Needling acupuncture. I continue to advance my knowledge of Western anatomy, acupuncture techniques, and Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with numerous continuing education courses to maintain my license. 

Clinically, I have experience treating musculoskeletal injuries and pain conditions, fertility and women's health, hormonal imbalances, and digestive disorders. Currently, I am one of the acupuncturists for the local professional football team. Whether you are an athlete, yoga enthusiast, cross-fitter, runner, cyclist, someone who sits at a desk all day, or a senior and you are in pain, I will be able to help you.

I look forward to working together!
