A Bit About Me

I began my Acupuncture studies at the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine in the Fall of 2000. I transferred to RainStar University in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2003 to complete my Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I am an Arizona State Licensed Acupuncturist and I am Nationally Board Certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture from NCCAOM. I have had specialized training from my studies abroad at Guang An Men Hospital in BeiJing, China. I also hold a current Nursing license for the state of Arizona.  

I am skilled at treating all types of pain including head, neck, back and sciatic pain. I am also accomplished in successfully working with conditions such as anxiety, stress, arthritis and autoimmune diseases along with neuralgia, neuropathy, shingles pain and bells palsy. 

The benefit to you of what I offer is the combined knowledge of both Eastern and Western medicine and the integration of the two approaches in a way that offers you the best possible treatment and healing outcome. I understand the strengths and limitations of each and advocate the patient in how to combine them in order to optimally use what the best of both worlds have to offer.  

Since my approach is integrative, not only does it provide you with excellent results, it works well in conjunction with any other healing modalities you may already be using. 

On a Personal Note

I love to go camping in my little teardrop trailer "Tillie" and explore this beautiful state of Arizona. I have been known to ghost hunt, treasure hunt, rock hound and look for forgotten places. I enjoy learning about the interesting stuff they don't teach you in school
