As a trauma-informed acupuncturist focusing in mental, emotional, and spiritual healing, I believe that physical ailments often, if not always, stem from emotional and/or spiritual imbalances. Therefore, addressing the emotional and spiritual roots of physical issues is an important element of my treatment style.
Imbalances I commonly treat include: depression, anxiety, chronic and acute pain, recovery from auto accidents, chronic illnesses, sleep, and digestive issues. I craft individualized treatments to help release blockages, drawing upon a combination of healing modalities that may include: acupuncture, flower essences, essential oil treatments, sound healing, energy work (reiki, cranial therapy and qigong), body work (tuina and shiatsu), and plant medicine.
I build nurturing, therapeutic relationships and facilitate the healing of emotional, physical and spiritual pain through my warm, caring demeanor and my ability to create deep relationships with people, plants and the spirit realm. Creating a safe treatment environment is very important to me, because this gives you more freedom to express your needs and emotions, allowing profound healing.
I am here to guide you along your path to optimal health by helping you to tune in to your authentic needs and illuminate what is held within the darkness. Together, we can shift old patterns both consciously and unconsciously. I look forward to accompanying you on your journey.
Education and experience
I earned my Masters of Acupuncture from the National College of Natural Medicine, where I studied acupuncture, qigong and Chinese herbalism. I combine the ancient wisdom of Chinese herbalism with western herbalism, which I have been studying for more than a decade with many teachers prominent in the field. I am certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
I fully realized the importance of my connection to plants and the natural environment during my undergraduate studies at Plattsburgh State University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. Upon graduation, I spent a few years traveling, working and living in areas where I was able to deepen my relationship to the natural world and began to truly experience the wonders of nature. My passion for nature continues and deepens each and every day.
