I love working with my patients. I spend 2 hours the initial visit including a comprehensive history, exam and treatment. Subsequent sessions are 1 1/2 hours. I am a California State licensed acupuncture physician and a nationally certified acupuncturist and herbalist since 1990. My background is as an Herbalist, Psychotherapist, Yoga Teacher and Deep Tissue Massage Therapist. I have been on the faculty at Ryoho Institute and Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine.
In my practice I combine all of my skills, education, intuition and experience. I create a personalized formula from my extensive pharmacy for each patient. The content of the formula aims at treating mind, body and spirit of each individual. The formula is changed as you change. My practice of compassionate listening supports openness toward healing.

Traditional Acupuncture originated in China around 5,000 years ago. The science and art of this ancient medicinal practice can be used to support both the creation and maintenance of health. Treatment is focused on supporting a balanced and harmonious flow of energy throughout the body. In order to remove energy blockages, fine stainless steel needles are placed on specific meridian points throughout the body. Alternatively, if a patient is a young child or prefers not to have needles, Acupressure can be applied in the same areas of the body. Both Acupuncture and Acupressure are used as a holistic form of healing the mind, body and spirit.
As an herbalist, trained in both Western Herbalism and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I utilize my pharmacy of over 300 herbs to create a personalized formula for each patient. The content of the formula aims at treating mind, body and spirit of each individual. The formula is changed as you change.
Seeking understanding of healing Samuel Hahnemann created Homeopathy in the mid 18th century. He found that using a potentized minimum dose of an element prompted profound healing. Homeopathy was the main form of medicine practiced in the first half of the Twentieth century in the USA. In deep listening to the patient, a Homeopath with experience can find a constitutional remedy to bring the patient back to their healthy self. The remedy awakens ones vital force.
First aid remedies are also given to match disease imbalances.
