The experience of birthing my first daughter naturally at a Birthing Center awakened a desire in me to support and empower women during the sacred cycles of their lives. My primary focus is on women’s health with a specialty in pregnancy, fertility, and healthy cycles. Knowing that Chinese Medicine is one of the most comprehensive and effective modalities for supporting women’s health, I devoted myself to a rigorous academic graduate program at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts and received my Master’s of Oriental Medicine. I used acupuncture and herbs to prepare myself to have a successful and gentle home-birth at the age of 40 with my second daughter, so I know first-hand how potent this medicine is!

In addition to being a licensed acupuncturist, I am a trained midwife’s assistant, Reiki Master and certified teacher of Kundalini and prenatal yoga. I studied with world renowned midwife Ina May Gaskin at The Farm in Summertown, TN, and with Tej Kaur Khalsa and Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa in Southern California. I am also a devoted student of Peruvian Shamanism.  This fuels my passion for walking the path of ayni (sacred reciprocity) with all living things seen and unseen while honoring prophecy and the indigenous earth ways of being. I am currently pursuing certification in Mayan Abdominal Massage. I enjoy having a diverse and unique array of modalities to assist each person on their own authentic adventure in healing.

My mission is to offer women (and the men and children that they love!) a compassionate healing space supporting them during all cycles of life with the assistance of acupuncture, herbs, yoga, meditation, massage and lifestyle recommendations. I place a strong emphasis on creating individualized treatment plans while offering a safe sanctuary for each person to relax into. With this integrative approach to healing, I am always willing to work collaboratively with your primary caregiver, doctors, midwives, and other health care providers. Ultimately we work together  to empower you to tap into your own innate wisdom and intuition restoring you your natural state of radiance.

When I am not in the office, you can find me in ceremony and ritual, (this really fuels and nourishes my spirit) trail running, practicing yoga, meditating, or spending quality time with my beautiful family.
