I see the healing process as a collaborative endeavor using information gathered from our relationship and the doctors you are seeing. Our goal is to achieve a flexible energetic state of the body, mind, and spirit. In addition to addressing your chief complaint, a very important part of my practice is to pay close attention to the signs of underlying conditions that have created the disease or have prevented recovery. I am trained in acupuncture and nutrition to help you achieve your health goals and to engender a more complete and lasting wellness.
