She also interned at Portland's Quest Center for Integrative Health under David Eisen, LAc. treating individuals in drug and alcohol addiction therapy as well as trauma recovery. Julie's specialties include endocrine health, disease prevention, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and women's health. Combining intuition and compassion, Julie's gentle needling technique facilitates the movement of qi (pronounced "chee")–known as vital energy–in her patients. Her intention is to help restore balance by careful cultivation of body, spirit and mind. She employs a blend of effective, natural therapies to address physical and/or emotional health issues. Her honest approach invites a safe, collaborative atmosphere with her patients, focused on immediate as well as long-lasting preventative medical care. Julie volunteers for the Portland Veteran's Acupuncture Project (SE Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church at SE 28th & SE Stephens; Thur. 5-8 PM) A significant focus of my acupuncture practice has been treating military personnel. In addition to my PVAP efforts, I've been treating PTSD, anxiety/depression, pain management, and chemical dependency on active duty soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq (Freedom Care Military Program; Cedar Hills Hospital, Beaverton, OR). And I've personally observed significant improvements in their physical conditions and general well-being resulting from these acupuncture treatments. As such, I'm convinced that acupuncture can play a vital role in combination with other treatment paradigms in caring for our soldiers and veterans."
