About Me

I have a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, CA.  I am licensed by the state of California and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and a current member of the California Society of Oriental Medicine.

My practice concentrates on pain management, women’s health and sports medicine. I am particularly interested in helping patients return to mobility following illness or injury, and to that end have recently studied with the noted Sports Medicine Acupuncturist Whitfield Reeves.

I have worked at the Temescal Acupuncture Center in Oakland, California since 2010. I have also worked as pain management specialist at Burt Chiropractic. While I was still a student, I worked as an assistant at the busy practice of Jorgen Jensen, L.Ac., and as a health care consultant for Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy.

I have been committed to the practice of Chinese medicine for healing and maintaining health since 2001.

My Focus is on Sports Medicine Acupuncture

Sports Medicine Acupuncture blends the wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Sports Medicine to understand the patient’s injury from a more wholistic view point.

Having been a fitness enthusiast since the age of eighteen it’s a natural fit to focus my practice on Sports Medicine Acupuncture.

At the beginning of Chinese Medicine school I completed a marathon to benefit Leukemia and Lymphoma.  Since then I’ve completed three century (100 mile) bike rides to benefit juvenile Diabetes.  I have been a devotee of The Dailey Method practically since it opened it’s doors in 2005.  It was an organic transition to direct my practice on Sports Medicine and apprentice under the esteemed Whitfield Reeves at the beginning of 2014.

Whether it be a weekend warrior or a mom trying to get back into shape, I find it so rewarding to assist people in achieving their fitness goals.

I set a high value on evaluating and addressing the unique condition and goals of each patient.
