Kathleen understands that with any illness or discomfort not only do our human physical bodies need to be attended to but we also need to address the ripple effects on our heart and mind in order to fully heal. This knowledge came through witnessing her mother succumb to cancer as a child, from her own chronic pain, and studying the medical system in rural India as an undergraduate. In rural India, Kathleen observed how the villagers responded to strokes, accidents, mental disorders, and garden variety illnesses. It didn't seem to be a stretch for the Hindu elementary school educated villagers to seek medical treatment from Muslim or Western treatments as well as the local herbalist. They enjoyed a more complete healing as well. The ill person's families also felt relief for having tried multiple approaches to return to health. It led to her first adult epiphany: Western medicine wasn't the only choice in health care. In fact, using additional medical approaches often led to better health outcomes. As a result, Kathleen was inspired to find a medical system that addresses all aspects of human suffering: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. She found this holistic four fold approach in Traditional Chinese Medicine. While undergoing her formal and rigorous acupuncture and herbal studies at San Francisco's American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she concurrently trained under two acupuncture masters and upon graduation, trained under an herbal master. She integrates all these teachings into the compassionate care and treatment of all her patients. She became nationally licensed in 1999 and opened her private practice the same year she earned her California acupuncture license in 2000. Subsequently, Kathleen has complemented her continuing acupuncture technique and herbal studies with the Emotional Freedom Technique and her medical expertise with Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis. One of Kathleen's greatest teachings has been her children. Daily they help Kathleen's practice of balancing life, deep listening, and being in the present moment. She also finds great joy by being in nature.
