As a health practitioner, I have found joy in assisting people on the road to health. I am California State Certified (LAc) with a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM), a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture & Herbology from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (MSTOM), and am a National Board Certified Diplomate (NCCAOM) in Acupuncture & Herbology. My belief is that the human body is capable of healing itself, and that Chinese Medicine is a powerful tool to assist the body and mind in that process. The flow of Qi from organ system to organ system is the key to effective diagnosis and treatment.
As an avid student with a passion for learning, I have mentored with Dr. Martha Lucas in the pulse balancing method and learned her Mei Zen protocols for weight loss, and facial and neck rejuvenation, and in addition, studied protocols for facial rejuvenation under renowned Brazilian acupuncturist, Fernando Fernandez. More recently I mentored under Dr. Jeremy Steiner out of New Jersey, founder of Electro-Acupuncture Medicine (EAM), in an extensive, year long mastermind group to become proficient in the use of electrical stimulation which dramatically enhances results. This course also focused on how dental issues can create life long, serious health problems, and what steps can be taken to correct them.
I continue to be amazed and humbled by the practical effectiveness of this ancient art and science of healing and its power to help people find relief from their ailments on the physical levels and beyond. I continually strive to refine my craft through continuing education and self study, and most importantly through clinical work with my patients. I enjoy treating all manner of diseases and disorders, including but not limited to any chronic degenerative conditions, autoimmune conditions, any and all pain conditions, digestive disorders, respiratory/sinus/allergy disorders, immune dysfunction, fatigue/insomnia, as well as psychological and stress/emotional conditions and addictions. I am thrilled to bring the rich traditions of Classical Chinese & Japanese Medicine to Alpine and value every opportunity to help patients overcome their suffering, whether it be reducing laugh lines, watching age spots disappear, or easing pain.
