As a practitioner of Chinese medicine I believe in seeing and healing the whole body. Injury and illness cause imbalance in the body and can manifest as pain, inflammation, fatigue, digestive difficulties, emotional changes, poor sleep, and more. I seek to restore balance to the patient's system through the use of acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, and massage.
I graduated from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and I am a board certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist through the NCCAOM. I am a member of Acupuncturists Without Borders and a certified AcuDetox Specialist with National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, believing in the importance of bringing quality, low or no-cost treatment to people suffering from trauma and addiction. Additional training includes post-graduate study abroad at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, where I completed clinical rotations in the Acupuncture Department at Jiangsu Provincial Hospital and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Qin Huai Hospital in Nanjing, China. I also recently returned from two months in Chapagaon, Nepal providing low-cost primary care services as a volunteer Acupuncture Physician with Acupuncture Relief Project. While in Nepal, I gained tremendous experience using Chinese medicine to treat musculoskeletal disorders and post-stroke rehabilitation, in addition to diagnosing and treating many infectious diseases, hypertension, diabetes, and more.
I have a life-long interest in understanding the body, reflected by my undergraduate studies at Duke University in Chemistry with a Biochemistry concentration and a pre-med curriculum of study. I also served as a Captain in the U.S. Army for over five years, and I am a two-time Iraq War Veteran.
