Ever since I was young, starting with my mother, I was exposed to how the body has an innate ability to heal itself through food, herbs, meditation, right exercise and life choices. By the time I was eight, I was accompanying my mother to the local acupuncturist office in Woodstock, New York, where I was raised. It was through witnessing her boiling herbs and changing her diet, that I watched how she began to heal from her IBS. This planted the seed for my passion for helping people, specifically women, transform their lives through alternative medicine practices and ancient healing modalities.

Throughout my adolescence and young adult years, while pursuing a career as a performer, I was always health conscious. I attribute much of my education of organic foods to my father ,who was a landscape architect, spoiling us with big lush gardens from which we pulled most of our seasonal vegetables from. However, upon moving to New York City for my performance career, I watched how my mental and physical health deteriorated in not having as accessible access to organic local food or fresh air, nor the space in my schedule for the rest time women often need at specific stages of their cycle. In order to counteract the environmental and lifestyle stressors, I quickly became an avid yogi, eventually also becoming a teacher, as well as found myself a knowledgeable acupuncturist—all of which helped recover my health while living in the big city.

Throughout the years that followed, as I traveled as a performer, I was privileged to meet various herbalist and chinese medicine practitioners to support my body in the days of amenorrhea, brain fog, anxiety, and post concussion syndrome as a product of my career. Entering their offices was my sanctuary, while I continued to stress my body to the point of deterioration. Once my body had had enough, I returned to my deepest hearts calling from earlier years and decided to make a career in alternative medicine. After studying Western Herbalism in California, Ayurveda in India, Reiki in Nepal, Neurofeedback and Craniosacral in Upstate NewYork, and various meditation techniques, with Vipassana being at the core, I eventually found my way back to the smells of the boiling herbs and whole food diet I grew up on by becoming a Licensed acupuncturist.

While I have had amazing opportunities to work in a variety of clinics and demographics, both during and after my graduate program, it was in supporting my first pregnancy patient in 2019 that I decided my professional mission would be dedicated to women's health, fertility support, and helping women at every stage truly thrive through all the hormonal shifts that come along with every cyclical change.

Since Chinese medicine truly honors each personal journey, never treating one body alike, I greatly look forward to working and listening to everyone 's stories in order to support what their specific body and lifestyle calls for.

I have always loved to travel. With 3 passports and family all over the world, I spent many summers as a child visiting my grandparents in England and Israel. I had the opportunity to live abroad for several months in high school and college but really took advantage of my travel bug after college when I lived abroad, worked, and traveled for 4 years. I was seeking to learn as much as I could about many different diverse cultures, but also about their unique and alternative healing practices. I was fascinated by how many of these healing practices looked at the root of the issue and not just a 1 size fix for everyone. I was a sponge taking in as much as I could. I studied massage therapy in Tel-Aviv Israel, participated in a Reiki course in Katmandu, Nepal, took a Thai massage course in Chang Mai, Thailand and lived at a yoga ashram meditating and doing yoga several times a day in Rishikesh, India. When I traveled to China, I wanted to experience acupuncture firsthand and to learn more about their culture and their medicine. At that time, I was already thinking about going to acupuncture school. In 2000, I moved back to the United States from Amsterdam, The Netherlands to begin my acupuncture studies at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine here in Seattle.

I became interested in Women’s Health, pregnancy, and postpartum care when I was pregnant with my first child in my final year of acupuncture school. I was living and breathing acupuncture at the time, but I was also immensely enjoying my pregnancy. I was amazed that my body knew what to do and how much acupuncture and Chinese herbs helped me during this time. Acupuncture helped me sleep, deal with stress, manage my changing body’s aches & pains and helped my body prepare for labor.

These days, I'm experiencing a new phase in my life. My children are transitioning from teens to young adults, and I'm moving through perimenopause. Now I can relate to a new phase of a woman's life, and I'm continuing to devote my personal  and professional experience to supporting, empowering, and serving as a resource for them. I want to create community for women as they are going through the different transitions of their lives.
