I've spent the past decade studying pathways to whole body health, from acupuncture and herbs to meditation and yoga. I am a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM). I am also a certified teacher of Hatha and Kundalini yoga. I completed yoga teacher training with Aadil Palkhivala of Purna Yoga and 3HO through Yoga West in Vancouver, B.C. I have completed DONA-approved training as a Birth and Postpartum Doula, as well as pre and postnatal yoga teacher training with Colette Crawford at Seattle Holistic Center. In addition, I am NADA certified to treat addiction with acupuncture.

My Philosophy:


My practice is dedicated to supporting whole body health in the lives of my patients. I think of health as a constant process. It's about balancing all the components of the self - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual - through a wide variety of means. Even the smallest change can make a big difference. I view myself as a partner with my patients, combining my training with their innate knowledge of what they need. I draw on my intuition and a wide range of healing modalities to provide fresh approaches that resonate and lead to substantive improvements in health, happiness, and well-being. These modalities include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tuina massage, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, and more. I am happy to be able to offer coverage under most insurance plans, as well as a sliding scale for those in need.
