I completed my undergraduate degree at Loyola Marymount University in LA. After graduating I began studying Chinese Philosophy and found a home within the deep knowledge. I completed my first two years of schooling at Emperors College in Los Angeles and completed the second two in San Francisco at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I interned at the California Pacific Medical Center working in their Stroke Clinic. Patients were not only stroke survivors but also battling autoimmune conditions and brain tumors. I helped them with their motor function, depression and pain. My passion is helping prevent stroke and also aid in the aftermath of a stroke.
No matter what I am treating it is my goal that my patients feel safe and understood. I believe there are endless possibilities that can happen over a series of treatments. When I'm not treating patients, I'm spending time with my husband and daughter in beautiful Mill Valley!
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs improve blood circulation by balancing energy and stimulates the healing process. Our treatments are specialized to the individual and their needs. We believe most can benefit from acupuncture as a preventative measure or to focus on a particular medical condition.
Acupuncture treatments use a series of sessions to make change. For best results plan on having atleast six sessions, once a week. Depending on what you are coming in for, we will let you know the ideal amount of sessions.
If you are unsure that acupuncture is the right fit for you, please feel free to connect with us. We would be happy to explain how acupuncture can benefit. Additionally, there are a lot of great resources and we would be happy to point you in another direction.
Please allow for an hour and a half on your first visit. We will discuss the reason for seeking acupuncture, medical history, come up with a treatment plan and receive a treatment.
During a follow-up visit we will discuss the effects of the last treatment either keep the treatment plan consistent or adjust the treatment plan for better results.
Herbal treatments are a way of continuing the work we do during an acupuncture treatment on a daily basis or solely using herbal treatments for those who are needle phobic.
