You deserve nothing less than the best. To provide you with the greatest professional skills, I am committed to my ongoing personal and professional development.
In 2009, I completed two Master’s Degrees at the TAI Sophia Institute in Maryland. I received my Doctorate in Acupuncture from Pacific College of Health and Science in 2020, and as a result have been asked to collaborate and/or edit several professional papers on the use of acupuncture in evidence-based clinical trials. My training also includes completion of advanced programs in Psych-K and various trauma certification programs at the Arizona Trauma Institute.
I am deeply involved in the Nonviolent Communication community and aim to create a heart-centered connection with all of my clients. To this end, I was recently accepted into the certification training program with Dr. Gabor Maté and the transformational work of Compassionate Inquiry®.
I began my acupuncture career in private practice, and for the past eleven years I have worked in various collaborative healthcare settings. These settings encompass various addiction treatment centers, Banner Medical Center, and the Department of Integrative Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.
My many years in healthcare have allowed me to develop what I believe to be the best approach to healing. I do this by focusing on five-element acupuncture, taking a trauma-informed approach to care, and incorporating wholeness into every healing session.
