welcome

I am so glad you have found your way to this site. If you are here, you must be considering coming in for an acupuncture session and that is a good thing!

My story

My joy in life comes from taking good care of people. As an acupuncturist I get to do that every day while also helping people empower their health and reclaim a sense of balance in their lives.

Funny story, I knew I was destined to become an acupuncturist before ever having had a treatment myself. I even enrolled in acupuncture school before ever experiencing the power and wonder of this medicine firsthand. I knew that acupuncture and Chinese medicine was the missing piece I had been looking for the day that I walked into an open house at the Eastern School, the school that would become my acupuncture alma mater.

The connection I felt to acupuncture upon observing it for the first time was immediate and profound. I enrolled on the spot and have been living my soul’s purpose ever since.

I graduated from the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine in Bloomfield, NJ with a Masters of Science in Acupuncture in 2016, and in early 2017 I opened my practice within Salt of the Earth Center for Healing in Chestnut Ridge, NY. In 2019 I achieved nationally board-certified status as a Diplomate of Acupuncture with the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

As a holistic practitioner, my approach reflects a belief in, and understanding of, the powerful interconnection of body, mind and spirit. My aim is to facilitate your return to improved health and wellbeing by addressing imbalance as it manifests at any phase of this continuum. When the source of imbalance can be correctly identified and resolved, good health and even mind will prevail. I delight in getting to the root of the problem and connecting the dots.

Guided by the time-tested wisdom of Chinese medicine, I create a customized treatment plan for every patient; one that empowers each’s own capacity for self-healing, but more importantly one that meets each person where they are.

My method is derived from a Japanese lineage that is both notably gentle and highly effective. Each session is customized to meet the present needs of the patient on the day of treatment and incorporates various complementary healing modalities such as therapeutic bodywork, cupping, gua sha, and moxibustion.

I look forward to assisting you on your path to renewed health!
