My goal is to help individuals know their wholeness in a greater way by invoking healing using holistic and natural medicine steeped in thousands of years of eastern tradition and western science that addresses current health practices using diagnostic and processes that relate to modern times.
If you feel like you are living in survival mode or just want to change the quality of your life, I can help you achieve your personal health goals, mind, body and spirit.
ABOUT CHINESE MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at the whole person mind, body and spirit. It knows the impact emotions have on the body. The ongoing impact stress and anxiety have on the functioning of the different systems and brain. It recognizes the Spirit in ancient writings; the treatments designed to link human beings to the heavens.
Each system of the body, organs and nervous system are connected and impacted by an energetic imbalance, your experiences and emotions. An Acupuncture treatment gently and efficiently brings the body back into balance, soothing the frayed edges and releasing constraint and stagnation from the body and soul. As we navigate major changes in our world, we must adapt and confront the changes before us. With support, education and tools, we can walk that journey confidently and successfully.

My interest in health and alternative medicine began when I was a teenager. Having experienced continual side effects from prescription medications, dealing with scoliosis and the possibility of having back surgery. I began a journey of investigating and learning about nutrition, science and different ways I could get my body at the highest level of health possible. My first experience with creating a healing protocol was when my husband was diagnosed with a Kidney condition. I read countless books on natural medicine and herbs and finally put together a formula and diet for him to try. He used it and successfully reversed his condition.
When trying to starting a family in my twenties, I found I had considerable endometiral adhesions in my reproductive system and abdomen. Unfamiliar with natural protocols at that time, I underwent laparascopic surgery and medication to eradicate as much of the unhealthy tissue from both areas. I was completely unaware I had endometriosis for quite some time, having no real symptoms, until I was reaching to hit a ball when playing tennis and felt a strange pain in my side. The whole experience was baffling and I was grateful that the results were positive and I was able to conceive.
Later in life I experienced difficulties with gut health, which impacted every aspect of my health. After extensive research, education and changing my diet and lifestyle, I became better equipped to face life with strength and focus and help others navigate and manage the mysterious symptoms of autoimmune and neurological conditions. Today, I feel so blessed to do what I love and help the people in my community live the healthiest and happiest life possible.
I received a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, and did my internship at Rady Children’s Hospital where I experienced first-hand the powerful effect Acupuncture had on patients in the Chronic Pain and Oncology Departments. I’m nationally credentialed by the NCCAOM with a Diplomat in Acupuncture and licensed in the state of Arizona. I have completed additional training in women's health and fertility, orthopedic injuries, insomnia, migraines, autoimmune conditions and facial rejuvenation. I enjoy the diversity and challenge of the variety of people I see, ranging from athletes, mothers, yogis, professionals, and people who enjoy a proactive outlook around their health. I conduct self-care workshops and corporate wellness events at organizations around the valley and provide contract acupuncture detox services at recovery centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Expertise.com rated Evolution Acupuncture one of the top 20 Acupuncture Clinics in 2016-2018 and I was selected one of Phoenix's most inspiring business owners by VoyagePhoenix.com.
