What brings you here?

"I need treatment for a specific health issue..."

...but we don’t have to walk that path alone. I believe, in fact, that we can’t do the whole thing as a solo mission. At some point, we all need to be witnessed and supported in our journey. I’m here to support you on your journey at whatever stage you might be, whether you’re just starting out, struggling with a plateau, or needing extra help getting through a difficult time.

The pursuit of healing is an integral part of the journey to become more fully who we are. Starting this adventure unlocks our capacity to discover more about ourselves and makes our unique gifts more accessible to share with our loved ones, our passions, and our work. 

Transformation doesn’t ask that you stop being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that’s already inside of you. You only have to bloom.
— Cheryl Strayed

The doorway to the true healing opens when we allow ourselves to look at our symptoms and diseases within the bigger context of our lives. 

Acupuncture and craniosacral work help balance the flow of energy within our minds and bodies so that we can experience alignment within ourselves and feel more like ourselves. As we become more balanced, it becomes easier for us to align with our true natures and we free up our vitality to engage more fully with life.

What Can You Expect?

 

HEALING

Presence and attention. Relief from pain, anxiety and other symptoms. Individualized treatment plans leveraging acupuncture, hands-on therapies and herbal medicine to support you.  Encouragement of small, sustainable changes in daily life to support resilience and nurture the healing of frazzled, overwrought and exhausted bodies.

 

EMPOWERMENT

I believe the better we understand ourselves and our bodies, the easier it is for us to make choices that support our well-being whether that’s letting our bodies tell us when we need rest, listening to our gut when making a decision or learning to recognize our patterns so that we have more choice in our experience.

 

PRESENCE

The opportunity to unravel your story in a healing context. A full ninety minutes at your first visit to address your symptoms, concerns and history within the larger context of your life. Clarification of what you most need right now and a treatment plan that takes into consideration the complicating factors of everyday life.

 

TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE

A healing space in which the somatic expressions of trauma can be safely addressed, without a set agenda other than supporting your wellbeing. Encouragement to ask questions and ask for what you need. Sessions responsive to how you are on that day and time, which may or may not use needles, because sometimes needles may be too much. A process in which you are empowered.

 

SAFE HAVEN

A space free of judgement, shaming, or should’s, in which you can walk your unique path at your own path. A space to experience your own vulnerability within the safety of authentic connection and presence, where you get to be deeply seen and heard, and your true self has permission to shine through.
