As a practitioner, my goal is to guide patients to use the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine to choose both professional and self-care methods that are effective and sustainable for them. Many chronic conditions require a multi-pronged approach that includes acupuncture and acupressure, cupping, nutritional therapy, and daily exercise or visualization. Patients receive specific instructions for self-care that are designed to meet their goals for physical and mental well-being.
Treatments in the clinic are primarily based on acupuncture and individualized herbal medicine, but may also include organ-balancing abdominal acupressure, targeted nutritional plans, cupping, and Qi-healing therapy. I treat and advise patients who want to address gynecological disorders, male and female infertility, post-partum recovery, insomnia, depression, anxiety, compulsive behavior, chronic and acute pain, sports injuries, skin disorders, acne, poor digestion, weight loss, and other conditions.
I live in the Highlands with my daughter and our two cats, Lion and Grey. In addition to working with patients, I also translate classical and modern Chinese medical texts, something that is both a vocation and a great hobby. I am enjoying getting re-acquainted with people and places in Louisville. You may see me at farmer’s markets, on biking trails, or doing Qigong in the parks.
