My Story


I fell in love with the healing arts at a young age. By thirteen I knew I would be working in this realm. During my biology undergraduate studies, I came upon this fascinating, ancient, and now evidence-based medicine of East Asia: Acupuncture. My passion for it hasn’t dwindled since.

I graduated from Maryland University of Integrative Health with a Master of Acupuncture degree. I will soon complete the Doctorate of Acupuncture as well.

I learned Traditional Chinese Medicine along with Five Element Acupuncture which uses the laws of nature to balance, harmonize, and spark the body’s natural healing abilities.

I enjoy supporting my patients in all stages of life, through experiences of difficulty, growth, and joy alike; compassionately helping you reach your highest potential. 

My goal is to offer a safe and peaceful space for you to be your whole, authentic self. Specializing in anxiety and insomnia, together we can also address pain, women’s health, the digestive system, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, chronic illness, overall well-being, and beyond.
