I practice a Japanese-style of acupuncture that is very gentle, yet highly effective. I work with many first-timers to acupuncture and enjoy explaining traditional Eastern physiology and helping take the fear out of the needles. Many people report that they don't even feel the needles going in and for this, I am grateful to my teachers.


With each treatment we spend time discussing food and lifestyle as this is a big part of Eastern medicine and healing the root causes of our health problems. My goal is to share practical resources such as delicious and healing recipes like the one provided below. I understand food and eating can be challenging and sensitive issues. I try my absolute best to stay judgement-free, gentle and encouraging. We're each on our healing journey for our lifetime -- best to have humor and support along the way!

I hold a 4th degree black belt and teach at Wild Crane Rising Martial Arts, a school for women and people who identify as trans, non-binary and gender expansive. I also enjoy teaching self defense, emphasizing prevention and boundary setting. I'm passionate about making healthy food deliciously satisfying and easy, which is why I'm constantly developing new, mostly plant-based, recipes. My partner and I get so much delight and  important life lessons from our dogs and horses. I love to hike, play pickleball and create tiny worlds through terrariums.

It can be so challenging to find snacks and sweet treats that are actually healthy -- click on the recipe below for a sugar and grain-free treat that nourishes your Lungs, Qi and Blood.
