Owner + Acupuncturist
My treatments are rooted in the understanding that acupuncture should set people free from unnecessary suffering. I strive to help patients re-write what’s possible around their bodies and well-being through a gentile and assertive approach. By acknowledging physical and emotional health are directly linked, I hope to connect patients to their innate capacity to heal.
My intention is to develop a collaborative partnership with each patient, where we both play an active role in your healing progress, leaving you feeling safe, supported, and empowered.
I see one patient at a time, allowing me to remain fully present with you in all aspects of your treatment and maintain a consistent quality of care.
While my formal training spans several styles and techniques under the Traditional Chinese Medicine umbrella, I have a deep admiration for and connection to Five Element Acupuncture. I have personally witnessed the profound results this particular style of acupuncture has provided countless patients, and it is the primary style I employ in my practice. I also incorporate trigger point therapy, Tui Na (Chinese medical massage), moxibustion (moxa), essential oils, gua sha, and cupping modalities in my treatments.
I am a nationally certified and New York State licensed acupuncturist, holding a Master's degree from Pacific College of Health Sciences, where I am also currently completing my Doctorate degree.
In my post-graduate studies, I’ve had the privilege to train with Jasmine Stine, L.Ac., a seasoned Five Element practitioner, and am currently pursuing continued education with Lonny Jarrett.
While I maintain a general practice, I am passionate about working with mental-emotional concerns, chronic musculoskeletal pain, reproductive health/fertility, and those going through big life transitions or moments of change.
My work is a reflection of my commitment to my own health and constant desire to learn new treatment approaches.
