My path of mind-body healing began through the study of psychology. After graduating with a Master’s degree in social psychology, I worked for large employee assessment companies where I conducted professional evaluations of candidates. While working in that role I knew something was missing and that the line of work I was in wasn't the right fit for my soul.
While I was feeling unfulfilled professionally, my interest in the health of both the mind and the body was evolving and simultaneously, I became familiar with the benefits of acupuncture.
I desired to combine my deep interest in health and compassion for people and it just seemed so natural to extend my background in psychology to a system of medicine that holds the mind and body as one.
At that point my path toward practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine became clear.
In the treatments I provide, I strive to facilitate the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine to restore and maintain health. I believe that the key to emotional and physical health is living a balanced life and I have found acupuncture to be a wonderful support to that end.
I treat a range of conditions including stress and overwhelm, digestive disorders, women’s health and fertility. I also put a large emphasis on preventative health and include it in the treatment plans of many clients in my practice.
If you are struggling with a health concern and would like to explore a holistic approach to supporting your body’s healing I would love to connect with you. Please book your complimentary consult and I’ll see you soon!
Since 2012, I have been performing Master Fang’s Scalp Acupuncture. I was honored to be trained by Master Fang's personal student Dr. Ching Ching Chi. This unique scalp acupuncture system is based on western neurology and combines modern knowledge of the human brain with the ancient practice of acupuncture. This system is very effective in treating various conditions.
In 2014, I attended a summer externship at XingHua Hospital affiliated with Zhe Jiang TCM University in Hang Zhou, China. At this integrative hospital, I had the opportunity to observe how modern western medicine can be effectively combined with the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to offer the best of these two worlds for the treatment of patients.
In 2016, I had the privilege to attend a two weeks seminar with Master Wang Ju Yi in Beijing, China. Master Wang Ju Yi is a world -renowned doctor and is well known for his Channel Theory method of treatment.
I graduated from Five Branches University at San Jose with a Master of Science. I also hold a Masters in Social Psychology from Bar- Ilan University, and a Bachelors in Sociology from the Hebrew University.
I am licensed to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine in the state of California.
