I'm a firm believer in integrative medicine, whether that means weaving many approaches within Chinese medicine into an acupuncture session or collaborating with the naturopath, nutritionist and chiropractors at Portland Healing Space to design your path to optimal health.
I believe that the potential to shift our own energy and realign to our optimal health lies within us. I use acupuncture as a catalyst for healing, inviting my patients to embrace the freedom and vitality that come from replacing outmoded patterns with informed and empowered health-centered choices. I'm passionate about sharing the gift of this medicine with my community.
A Maine native, I found my way to Oregon on the seat of a bicycle. After a 6,000 mile bike tour around the country, I fell in love with the mountains, desert and ocean of Oregon, and eventually relocated to Portland. I graduated from Bard College with a BA in film studies and worked in film for 6 years before discovering my love for Chinese Medicine. I earned a Master’s degree from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and am certified nationally and in the state of Oregon.
