" although i don't know what brings you here (yet), I can't wait to learn all about your health and wellness wishes, needs, goals - and so much more about you! one thing i do know is that you are so much greater than the sum of your parts. and by working together, you can have a HEALTHIER, more balanced amazing life. "
I’m incredibly education-focused.
98% of the work I do falls into at least one of three groups.
Women struggling with fertility.
Women working on holistic wellness.
Women with emotional health concerns -
particularly trauma, grief and anxiety.
Here's some examples of
patients I love to work with.
Women who are experiencing a whole constellation of symptoms, who intuitively know are related.
Of course your terrible PMS, headaches, fitful sleep and irritability are connected - let’s talk!
* * *
Women who struggle with anxiety and cannot turn their brains off.
Hello my bosom sister!
* * *
Women who are grieving.
I’m so very sorry. I'd love to help.
* * *
Women who have hormonal concerns.
Thyroid issues? Perimenopause meltdowns? Post birth control pill or IUD period mysteries?
* * *
Women who are looking for a more supported and awesome pregnancy or childbirth experience.
From morning sickness, to gearing up for a great birth and even - YES! - being a more balanced and holistic mom for this new little human.
You get the idea. And if you can relate, you’re definitely in the right place! Now I'm sorry, but if you are a dude with a sore shoulder or a woman seeking an acupuncture facial, I'm not the one for you. But you can search for other nationally board certified acupuncturists who will be a better fit for your needs.
I honestly couldn’t imagine doing anything that I’d love more than this.
It is a constant joy to get to REALLY know women in some of the most amazing, tender, vulnerable places of their lives. Thanks for considering inviting me in. If I’m the right fit for you, let’s talk. I know we can kick a little holistic butt together.
Still deciding if you'd
like to work with me?
Here's some FAQ.
What's A Visit Like?
I practice in an extremely education / patient centered way. I see 10 women in the time most acupuncture clinics see 18-25. My goal is for YOU to understand and have more control of your health. Acupuncture is a springboard, but you should walk out the door and be able to build and sustain on our progress every step of the way.
20 - 25 minutes to chat / education ^
5 - 10 minutes place needles and continued chatting
30 minutes cozy and quiet rest or guided meditation with needles in place+

^ We’ll start with what you want and need the most and expand as we go. I absolutely love teaching you how to help yourself!
+You'll have an eye pillow, doorbell to ring if you need anything, table heater, white noise/music/meditation options plus other add ons if you'd like (extra infrared heaters, aromatherapy).
* Accessory techniques are often added to my treatments. These may include cupping, moxibustion (a treatment to warm various acupuncture points), Gua Sha (dermal friction), and last but definitely not least, electro-stim (for improving uterine blood flow and other stress, circulatory or pain concerns).
What will I get if I work with you?
My hope is that you get everything you dream of and MORE!
Check my Life Healing Life Promise to see my commitment and declaration to you.
How often Should I come to see you?
Frequency should always honor your unique circumstances. Consider your time, energy, finances, desires and how our sessions actually feel for your body and mind and THEN decide what frequency works for YOU. I see women anywhere from once a month to weekly (rarely do I see more than weekly with the exception of embryo transfer weeks). Many acupuncture clinics suggest two (or more!) treatments per week - I feel strongly that this is NOT helpful for most women and usually stresses them out! This should make your life feel MORE balanced and sane, never LESS.
What are your rates?
Take a look at my current menu of rates and treatment options.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
The short answer is no, I do not because it does not allow me to practice the way I feel serves you best.
But read my article to understand more and find ways to make visits more affordable.
When do you work?
I see patients at my office:
Mondays 12:30 - 9:30p
Wednesdays 12:30 - 9:30p
Fridays 8:30a - 2:00p
* * *
I'm on-call for time sensitive IVF, pregnancy and other needs in the mornings 6 days a week, most weeks. I must prioritize my regular patients' needs over one-time patient needs, but I will do my best to point you in the right direction when I cannot work with you.
Are you accepting new patients?
Because I see women in such a unique and individually-focused way, I typically always have a wait list to get new patients started. But take a look at the following information for more details on what that looks like, and you'll see some great options you can take advantage of while you're waiting!
