My Approach

My primary interest is ensuring patients receive the most effective care to help them achieve their family building goals. I am committed to collaborating with you and your doctor. I practice at the Portland Acupuncture Studio, which is conveniently located within Synergy Women's Health Care, the leading integrative gynecological practice in Portland. I see patients Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Most insurance payers accepted.

My Background

I graduated with my Master of Science degree from Bastyr University in 2001, and the Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2009. I am board certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbs by NCCAOM, and reproductive medicine by ABORM. I have extensive experience in using acupuncture and Chinese medicine as an adjuvant to in vitro Fertilization (IVF), and since 2001, have supported over 1,000 patients through the entire process. I am internationally recognized for my work in IVF and Acupuncture/East Asian Medicine. Before I moved to Portland in 2011, I managed an acupuncture program for more than five years at a Seattle IVF clinic. I also published several research papers looking at the impact of acupuncture and Chinese medicine on IVF birth outcomes. I was highlighted on KING-TV, CBC Radio, CBS Radio Grow Cook Heal Podcast, Yin Yang Podcast, and in Portland Monthly, Seattle Metropolitan, and the Georgia Straight (Vancouver, BC).
