My Approach

I have great confidence in the natural process of pregnancy and childbirth. I believe in a mama’s strength to both give birth and enter motherhood confidently, safely, and joyfully. I strive to empower my clients through educational, emotional, and physical support. I believe East Asian Medicine is a powerful ally helping you to achieve your best health. Through acupuncture, herbs, and bodywork we can find a moment of pause amidst the intense sensations and emotions that accompany the childbearing years and life itself.

My Background

I have been providing services to women during pregnancy and postpartum since 2008. From 2008-2011 I had the honor of working full time as birth and postpartum doula here in Portland. In 2010, I also completed a Midwife's Assistant training from the legendary Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives. In 2011, I chose to pursue a Master's Degree in East Asian Medicine as another way to help support and empower families. I hold a master's degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and a bachelor's degree from Smith College.
