Finding the why behind your health problems since 2007.

Why you? Why me?

I’ve been watching you for a long time now and I can see and feel that your physical and emotional pains are holding you back, before you even tell me. I see you walking down the street with tension in your shoulders. I see you sighing deeply with feelings of overwhelm. I can feel the anxiety and anger pulsing through your body – the stuff you ignore during the day but interrupts your sleep at night. I know how many things you’ve tried. You’ve done it all. 14 different Doctors. Acupuncture. Massage. Prescription meds. Therapy. Exercise. Everydamndiet. You’re pulling your hair out. Believe me. I get it. Not only do I see you going through it daily, but I’ve had to learn this lesson myself. 

Sitting in my office with my patients for the past 10 years has taught me a lot about what it means to truly heal. It doesn’t always mean getting rid of every symptom. It does mean living a life that rocks and learning to use your symptoms as your most trusted guides.

I learned this first on all of you (thanks ;)). And then I needed to learn it on myself. After years and years of having ‘good enough’ health, I started getting monthly migraines. Yep, those hormonal ones.

I noticed that I had crazy neck pain around my cycle and this sense of nervousness and anxiety about everything I did, especially around that time.

I was helping you, every day, but I was suffering in the background.

So I started going back into all the books that shaped the wisdom I used with my patients and started using it on myself. What I discovered along the way was that every. single. thing. I had taught you over the years had come back to haunt me. I had tried to override the wisdom of my body with the knowledge in my head. 

It didn’t work. 

So, I got back into my body. I started listening to her. I responded to her wants and needs. And slowly but surely I got more comfortable. I was reminded how strong my intuition is. I remembered that going through the world feeling supported and guided was better than any medicine I had ever taken. The weight of life, emotions and physical pain was lifted off of me. And when it comes back? I know there’s a reason for it. An adjustment to be made. Fun to have.

Education and My Favorite Moments with you

I fell in love with Chinese medicine in 2002 and I’ve been growing and changing by leaps and bounds ever since. I completed my Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine in 2007 and brought my knowledge all over the world with me. Now, after 10 years and more than 20,000 treatments, I’ve responded to the call of my patients to share more, say more, write more. I am proud of the intuitive healer that I have become. The moments that I connect with myself and then connect with my patient or client are the moments that make me feel alive.

My favorite moments in the treatment room are more and more about the time that I have to chat with my patients. I love watching them realize things and have the courage to make changes. I am thrilled by the fact that patients come to me for advice, not only about their health, but about their lives. The ability that I’ve gained over the years of cutting through people’s BS turns out to be one of the things my patient’s love most – and the reason they keep coming back.

I believe strongly in your ability to create the life you’ve always know you wanted to live. I love helping you break through beliefs that hold you in place (especially when they are BS and easy to change in reality). I will hold your hand and cry with you when necessary and tell you to pull on your big girl pants when that’s necessary too. I promise to not let you hide from yourself and to always tell you the honest truth about what I see and feel. By trusting my own intuition, I teach you to trust yours. By trusting your intuition you get to live in a way that thrills you. By living in a way that thrills you, you inspire people around you to do the same. It’s a win-win-win. (My favorite kind. Double wins are ok.. but triple wins are the bessssssst)
