Why did you become an acupuncturist?
When I needed change and growth to manage pain I was experiencing, it was acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine that guided me to a path of ease and healing. I’ve never looked back.
What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
Growing up in a rural northern ocean community allows me to deeply connect with the organic and elemental natures. My yearning for growth and knowledge expands my life experience. In my practice, I become the bridge between the philosophical roots of TCM and the evidence-based science of healing with the assistance of acupuncture and TCM.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
My work is inspiring every day. Connecting with my patients in every way, providing treatment, guiding self awareness, and witnessing their growth and healing is an exceptionally fulfilling workplace to attend to daily.
What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
Generally, people think acupuncture only treats musculoskeletal pain. While regulated practitioners are well equipped to treat a wide variety of pain conditions, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine does well to treat and manage pain that comes along with digestive disorders as well as conditions of mental and emotional health in which pain is harder to see or measure.
How do you stay healthy in your own life?
Living in the largest city in Canada can have its challenges to living a healthy life. However, I set intention to live in relationship with the seasons and medicine I practice. I bike or walk daily, eat well, rest, enjoy my family and friends, and enjoy nature as much as possible. The walk up the Humber River is one of my most enjoyed routes.
