I am a licensed acupuncturist who graduated from NCNM in 2013
My practice specializes in physical medicine and body centered psychodynamic work integrating and synthesizing many different modalities to best serve my clients. I treat all forms of pain conditions, from knee, hip, neck and low back pain, to migraines, whiplash and menstrual cramps. I have helped people avoid hip and knee replacements, recover from auto accidents, heal from concussions and regain mobility they thought they would never have again. I also work on the emotional and psychological levels, using the body itself as the venue for renegotiating old traumas and developing new resources.
I help people to not just liberate themselves from pain, but to become empowered in their own bodies; to inhabit and live fully connected and embodied.
I am trained in classical Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine derived from the Nei Jing and Shang han za bing lun. I utilize osteopathic techniques such as craniosacral therapy and visceral manipulation, structural integration and myofascial release, as well as somatic based psychology and trauma work derived from somatic experiencing, bodynamics, psychosynthesis, and other body centered forms of mental and emotional therapy. I work with clients where they are at, and can adapt my treatment to include more or less acupuncture or bodywork depending on their need and inclination.
