This journey began in 1993 at Emperor's College in Santa Monica, Ca. where I took one class in Chinese Herbal Medicine fell in love with this medicine - with this way of thinking.  While Chinese herbs hooked me, Acupuncture and Life Style Changes have become my main way of treating my patients, although I do prescribe herbs at times.  My great joy is watching patients who have been in pain be able to move, continue their activities and feel like themselves again through treatment.  I work both solo and collaboratively with other medical providers because from my perspective none of us has all of the answers all the time.  

I find it important to listen to my patients so that we are more of a team in their healing together.  When I listen carefully, patients tell me what I need to know to treat them more effectively and I find that patients frequently have their own answers.
