MATCM, CBP, L.AC.
I have a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (MATCM) from Yo San University, where I was certified in Orthopedic Care under Don Lee. I also have a background in movement, dance and Pilates, which informs my understanding of physiology and functional alignment. I am particularly interested in using the mind-body connection to treat both acute symptoms and underlying causes of pain and illness. Put simply: acknowledging the spectrum of variables surrounding an illness allows your body to heal faster—and I can help you do it.
I work with a variety of modalities, including acupuncture and cupping, Chinese herbal medicine, osteopathic manipulations, and the Body Talk System, in which I’ve been certified since 2010. I move fluidly among modalities to tailor each appointment to my patient’s particular needs, so no two sessions are quite alike.
I take a practical, integrative approach to healthcare, and advocate for sustainable lifestyle adjustments to help you improve your quality of life. I am not a doctor, but I am happy to work with your doctor to determine the right protocol for your needs.
I am a graduate of Wesleyan University (BA, 2008) and have done graduate work at both the CUNY Graduate Center and the University of Southern California.
