I was first introduced to chiropractic as a teenager when I was running with the Santa Monica Track Club. I was fascinated with the chiropractor’s ability to pin-point a problem and address it quickly. As an athlete I recognized the importance of functioning at the highest level possible. When it came time to choose a career, my path was clear. I wanted to help people function at their greatest capacity. My goal is to bring this level of wellness to athletes and non-athletes alike. I believe that everyone should feel their best and live pain free whether they are taking a walk or doing a triathlon. In almost 30 years of practice, I have treated a multitude of issues including sports injuries, work related injuries and auto accidents as well as people just wanting to feel their best. In all this time I am still inspired by the results my patients achieve.
I utilize a combination of techniques and work with my patients in a way that includes stretching and strengthening to help prevent future injuries. Whether you are an athlete or not, there is a place for you in my practice. I look forward to working with you.

Time and experience have taught me that when it comes to wellness, utilizing an integrative approach from various disciplines, based on experience and wisdom, provides better outcomes for our patients and clients when addressing health concerns. These are exciting times combining the best of technology with ancient wisdom to heal people! I love waking up every day and coming to work to see what the new day will bring. Acupuncture has made a huge difference in my life and I'm here to help as many people as I can. I began my journey with acupuncture at Yo San University almost 12 years ago, and never looked back. I'm devoted to helping others with their personal and professional health goals. My goal is to partner with the patient to help restore balance and optimal vitality within the body. I look forward to working with you!
I treat a variety of health challenges such as pain, stress, sports injuries, post opt recovery, depression, and addiction. I have a special interest in type 2 diabetes, infertility, women’s health, prenatal and postnatal care for moms.

I love making people feel better and seeing the smiles on their faces when their chronic pain is reduced. They are thrilled to be able to return to their regular life and activity. It’s all about helping people and working as a team with the patient to provide healing for their body. That was my inspiration when I determined that I wanted to enter the healthcare field. It took me a while of sifting through the competitiveness of the pre-medical school program and working with the athletes in the training room at UC Irvine, to set my ultimate goal of becoming a physical therapist. I have been an active PT for 7 years practicing in orthopedics with a focus on sports medicine. I'm intrigued by the mobility of the body and determined to make it move fluidly. It’s all about balance. I
n addition to my studies in the Physical Therapy doctoral program at Mount Saint Mary’s University, I use my background in gymnastics, dance, track and field, and pilates to assist with determinating the appropriate exercises for my patients, which will help them find the balance that their body needs.

I practice acupuncture because it gives me the tools to help people feel better immediately and also help them heal permanently. I studied western medicine first, and found that a lot of western treatments just mask problems without actually fixing them. While I appreciate western medicine for it’s strengths, I found that there were gaps that I was falling through when my own conditions couldn't be diagnosed or treated effectively. When I found Chinese Medicine, I loved how it viewed the whole body as being one interconnected ecosystem that included emotions. I was able to begin unraveling my own chronic conditions and pain effectively. Once I started practicing, I unlocked a passion for pain management. I get immense joy from helping my patients get back to the activities they love.
