Having been a musician and athlete for most of my life, I know about the intimate connection between body, mind and spirit. I believe that following a "path of zen" is a continuous journey of exploration into your own empowered ability to "heal thyself" on body, mind and spirit levels.
I graduated from Mt. St. Mary’s University in 2003, earned my Masters in Acupuncture from the Tai Sophia Institute in 2011 and my Doctorate in Acupuncture from MUIH in 2019. From 2011-2013, I became certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist, received training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture from Michelle Gellis and my Reiki Master and Integrative Reflexology Certifications from the Holistic Massage Therapy Institute. In 2019, I began Beginner Training in exploring the Jin Shin Jyutsu method.
I offer my services to provide relief from symptoms that may be obstacles in preventing my clients from living and thriving. My treatments serve to not only alleviate symptoms, but to awaken body awareness and spiritual cultivation. My clients walk the path of empowerment with each treatment, as we share a partnership built on engaging the senses, understanding ones symptoms/body and cultivating the wisdom to maintain ones own well-being. Based on each clients needs, I can combine Acupuncture, Acuseed Therapy, Reiki and Reflexology techniques to offer the deepest and most complete wellness experience.
Since 2016, I have served as the Main Acupuncturist, Clinic Manager and Supervisor of Acupuncture/AOM Internships at the Kaufman Cancer Center at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, MD., where I treat all patients, have created and manage a seamless integrative clinical setting, continuously developing protocols and treatment strategies that serve in educating D. Ac. interns on administering safe and effective treatments in alignment with the inner workings of a Western medical setting, to serve a very specific and complex population in need.
My chosen treatment modalities all hold the possibility of shifting any presented symptom on body, mind and spirit levels; unless the symptom is one that is deemed to require Western medical interventions (such as surgery). Through my experience, the age of the symptom, its level and nature, along with patient constitutional/lifestyle factors all provide us with the information we need to assess how treatment can best serve. And, due to my experience working within a hospital setting, I believe in the collaborative power of Eastern AND Western medical modalities to provide effectively encompassing care.
I look forward to expanding my services in regards to continued treatment ingenuity, effectiveness, patient education and empowerment, so that we can all engage in healing ourselves and one another. I appreciate your consideration, in serving as your practitioner, being in partnership with you on your PATH of ZEN; body, mind and spirit harmony.
