I am passionate about health & wellbeing and helping people feel their best. Prior to training as an acupuncturist I worked in the field of psychology with adults and adolescents with mental health and emotional issues for over 10 years. Observing how a person's emotional health affected their physical health and how a person's physical health affected their well-being I wanted to retrain in a modality that could address both issues. I began my Acupuncture training in England and studied there for three years, before moving to the US and training for a further three years.

The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is designed specifically for that individual to address issues on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I treat a broad spectrum of health issues including pain, stress / anxiety, women's health issues, digestive issues, headaches, sleep disorders.

During each acupuncture session I will look at diet and lifestyle and use tools such as nutrition, moxibustion, cupping, and lifestyle counseling along with needling to help the body's natural healing processes. I am a certified NADA Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist and certified in facial rejuvenation acupuncture.
