I am committed to helping you awaken your body's natural healing intelligence & restore balance in as few treatments as possible. This is achieved through a combination of treatment approaches that may include acupuncture, nutrition, herbal medicine, movement, & breath. I never require ongoing treatments, but many patients choose to continue regular care because they feel more balanced & calm when they do.
I will never judge or criticize the decisions you make regarding your health. I work with people who use a combination of natural & conventional medicine, as well as those who prefer a solely holistic approach. Regardless of your approach, I'm committed to helping you achieve optimal health.
I strive to maintain integrity with my patients & make recommendations based on your individual needs--never more, never less. I treat patients with dignity & respect & am committed to listening to you. I believe in open, honest communication to help you reach your health & wellness goals.
