I have worked with patients with a wide variety of conditions and I work with patients of all ages. My goal is to help my patients to restore and sustain their long-term health and to guide them towards greater overall well-being.

I don’t simply work with a patient’s diseases or symptoms; I work in partnership with patients to understand who they are in relation to Chinese Medicine, how they arrived at this state of health, and how they can heal.

While studying prerequisites for chiropractic school and working for two years with a well-known acupuncturist in Mill Valley, I became impressed with her healing results. One day she firmly suggested that I go into acupuncture school to become an acupuncturist. And when I told her that I wanted to be a chiropractor, she said, “Chiropractic care has no depth; Chinese Medicine is more interesting.” Then and there I began to change my career focus.

The depth of healing potential with Chinese Medicine was intriguing. Chinese Medicine has a 4000 year old history. I’ve come to appreciate the endless education in Traditional Chinese Medicine for me to study in this lifetime.

After graduating from the Academy of Chinese Culture in Health Sciences with a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I have worked with thousands of patients with acute and chronic conditions. Each year I take 25 continuing education units I currently study with a Master in Washington. At this time, my concentration is pain relief and mastering medical pulse diagnosis.
