      Though I have strong faith in God, I am a born skeptic. So how does the skeptical daughter of a Western medicine physician become an acupuncturist? She sees firsthand how limited and broken our medical system has become, has acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments fix multiple health problems she had, and decides she wants to offer real solutions to likeminded people.  When I saw lab results were changing just from using acupuncture and herbal medicine, I sold my house and moved to Austin to attend 4 years of AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.  It's the best decision I ever made besides marrying my husband and getting dogs.

      I enjoy treating difficult, chronic medical conditions and doing cosmetic facial acupuncture on men and women.  My patients will tell you how our work together stopped painful esophageal spasms; allowed a gentleman to avoid back surgery from crippling back pain he developed as he cared for and lost his wife to cancer; allowed another young gentleman to go back to work because we stopped his post-prostatectomy urinary dribbling issues; brought sparkle and fewer wrinkles to a lovely 78-year-old (who was a secret smoker!), and more.  I'm not magic; we did those things through being a good match for each other and following a consistent treatment plan. "How?" and "Why?" are my driving force to help people back to feeling hope, joy, and zest for life again. 

 

      I spent much of my life working in Western Medicine clinics and am happy to help explain things your doctor has told you, and to collaborate with your physician.  Western medicine and East Asian Medicine each have their place and it doesn't have to be one or the other.  I am a licensed medical professional and seek to build the bridge between the two by treating the whole person.

 

      Although acupuncturists are trained to treat everything, specialties in clinic are low back pain, wrinkles, shingles, acne, eczema, psoriasis, constipation/IBS/diarrhea, effects of aging, headaches, bladder issues, stress, PMS, hormonal issues, low libido, insomnia, sinusitis, chronic joint pain (knees, elbows, frozen shoulder, wrist and ankle), anxiety, and grief. Any condition that began after a loss or difficult emotional time in your life is a particular specialty.  I do not treat female infertility or sports injuries but I am happy to recommend excellent practitioners in both those areas.
