I am committed to supporting you in experiencing optimum health and well-being. By combining traditional Chinese Medicine with functional medicine, I offer an integrative approach to identify your unique diagnosis and to develop and implement a treatment plan that achieves your goals.
Working in collaboration with your healthcare team, I provide information and education to achieve your transformation. If you’ve searched Dr. Google and have discovered a plethora of potential causes and have purchased enough supplements to require a kitchen remodel… then you’ve come to the right place!
With 20 years experience as a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, trained in functional medicine, I can help.
Traditional Chinese Medicine discovered me in 1978 when I was struggling with digestive complaints that flummoxed medical doctors. They could offer care for the symptoms but could not identify, and could not therefore treat, the cause of my problem. In desperation, I visited a Chinese Medical provider for an acupuncture treatment and herbal prescription where I was shown the link between grief and stress over loss of a loved one and its correlation to my disharmony. I was healed, and I was sold!
Time passed in the corporate world and growing a family, and twenty-five years later I enrolled to earn my Masters’ Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and was licensed in 2002. Fast forward another twenty years, and I’ve earned my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and remain entranced by TCM, which I blend with integrative and functional medicine to inform my diagnosis and develop the best treatment plan for you.
Using the best of both traditional and conventional medicine I will work with you toward realizing your optimum health and well-being. The depth of my training and the wisdom of my years provide me a unique experience to assist you on your healing journey.
When not enrolled in a course for learning more about how best to encourage healing, I can be found preparing meals for friends and loved ones, visiting museums, plays or movies, or hiking the trails of beautiful Mt. Tamalpais and the surrounding San Francisco bay, accompanying my personal trainer, Millie the bubble- chaser extraordinaire!
