The artistry and true integration of Western science with Eastern philosophy drew me to East Asian medicine. Though my focal practice includes Orthopedic/Sports Acupuncture and Pain Management, Family Practice, and Cosmetic Acupuncture, the beauty of East Asian Medicine lies in that, by balancing the body's energy and improving circulation, it addresses the root of the pathology of disease(s). You may find that while you are seeking treatment for a main complaint, secondary issues may be resolved as well.

As a graduate of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine - NYC, the largest educational entity of East Asian Medicine in the US, my training includes extensive hours in Sciences and Western Medicine; herbal studies and its clinical applications; bodywork techniques and body manipulation; and hands-on needle technique and clinical treatment experience. I hold a Bachelors in Pre-Med/Microbiology, a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine, and am in pursuit of a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

My mission is to preserve and improve the health and well-being of individuals in my community by optimizing and balancing the body's natural healing processes in order to prevent disease through acupuncture and its various modalities, herbs, and dietary therapy. As a professional health care provider, I am prepared to share with you my skill set.

In my time away from clinical practice I enjoy spending time with my young family, exploring and learning all the time-- adventuring, sports, DIY crafting and treasure hunting!

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING:

"I went into ImpactPT for an ankle problem that had plagued me for months. It left me basically unable to walk on it after playing a soccer game. Within minutes they had my diagnoses and then fitted my foot for orthopedic insole. After using the insole for a few weeks, there was a noticeable improvement after playing soccer or hiking. Within a couple of months there was absolutely no pain."
