I trained at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture when it was still in Stamford CT and called the "Tri-State College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture". Early on I was exposed to Mark Seem's French-Vietnamese inspired approaches and his emphasis on the "bodily felt sense" - something I resonated with deeply as I engaged in meditation practice.
As the years went on and my studies continued, I found my own way - often palpation based with a blend of what I learned from Kiiko Matsumoto and most recently, Five Spirit Acupuncture. I studied with Lorie Dechar and Benjamin Fox through three "seasons" of the Alchemical Healing Mentorship. This approach created a bridge between my deep grounding in meditation, mindfulness and intuitive approaches and my background in traditional acupuncture and western medicine (I have a MS degree in Nutritional Sciences). I have also studied essential oils with Peter Holmes and Tiffany Pollard and incorporate this in my work as well, along with Bach and other flower remedies.
Of course, I treat what ails you. I have a general practice and treat pain conditions, digestive, gynecological, and mental emotional complaints. However, whatever the challenge, my belief is that it is possible to change the way we relate to these challenges and to gain the wisdom and insight that can accompany us on our journey.
Unlike many other practitioners, I prefer to treat one patient at a time. This gives me the time to really be present with each client and open to whatever is needed from moment to moment.
