Why did you become an acupuncturist?
Initially I came to acupuncture for my own healing for a longstanding pain and nerve issue. Acupuncture worked when 10 years of surgery and other interventions did not. I had been in the field of social work and I discovered through acupuncture the world of mind-body healing. I enjoy helping people in their healing process, physical and emotional.

What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
I have an integrative practice using a variety of modalities—acupuncture, energy medicine, micro-current electricity, craniosacral therapy, acupressure, and other techniques. I am able to draw upon many skills and techniques to assist each person according to what is best for them. I only see one person at a time so everyone receives my full attention.

What do you enjoy most about your work?
I have been practicing for 18 years (since 1993). I am fascinated by my work and thoroughly enjoy it. I continue to grow through continuing education. Most recently I have been working with indigenous healers in Mexico. My favorite part is the relationships I have with my clients.

What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
The biggest misconception that I hear is that acupuncture hurts. I have a gentle approach and have treated children as well as adults with acupuncture. While a fear of needles is understandable, acupuncture can be done in a gentle, non-invasive way.

How do you stay healthy in your own life?
I do my best to “walk my talk.” I exercise, eat well, dance, spend time in nature and enjoy social time as well as quiet time. I take vacations to rejuvenate myself. I receive bodywork sessions regularly. I enjoy my life!
