I endeavor to provide my patients with the most comprehensive care of which I am capable. My study of several modes of energy and physical medicine have given me many ways to help you access your highest state of health in body, mind and spirit.

In the course of treatment, I work to keep my patients optimistic and maintain a sense of humor.  So don't be surprised if you hear laughter coming from my office.

I am able to synthesize varied information into my practice and teaching.  This allows me to combine Acupuncture with other techniques from complementary medicine to create a deep healing experience.

I have seen the value of Acupuncture and Polarity Therapy in encouraging health and in treating life threatening disease. Each new practice just adds to the richness of my skills.

All that alphabet soup after my name is only the beginning of how I haven't exactly gotten here in a straight line. Acupuncture is my third career. Before that, I had a 20 year career in corporate computer work. There was a 5 year overlap as I started my massage practice.  I have been actively involved in the healing arts since 1992 when I started studying massage and have been studying since.  Acupuncture school was my last big project that earned me a separate certification and an additional degree, BPS/MSAC.
