My practice is informed by my mentors Maury Stein & Luis Yglesias who taught me about the importance of consciousness. Meaning, we are where our thoughts are. Where we put our attention & intention. Sun Miao said “Medicine is intention. Those were proficient at using intentions are good doctors.” Our feelings follow our thoughts. When we change our thoughts, we redirect everything that’s going on in our body.

I have a profound belief that the body wants to heal itself. We see this when we bring the organ systems into the dynamic balance that generates life in the Sheng/generating cycle. I believe that it is my duty to do the smallest thing to affect the greatest change and to teach my patients how to do that for themselves.

I practice in Northampton in Springfield Massachusetts, and was first licensed in California in 1990. I earned my masters at ACTCM and my DACM from PCOM, I am in ABORM fellow and had the privilege of studying at the feet of Raven Lang Midwife and acupuncturist.
