I have been in practice in the South Portland area for over ten years. I received my Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Five Branches Institute in Santa Cruz California. Prior to becoming an acupuncturist I was a massage therapist and I incorporate knowledge of other bodywork into my practice. I am the mother of a teenager, a yoga practitioner and an avid dance enthusiast. I spend much of my free time in swing, ballet, salsa or tango classes! My patients often tell me that my gentle approach puts them at ease. I have great respect for this ancient medicine and its ability to produce profound healing.
