I am a Colorado State Board licensed Acupuncturist and a Diplomat of Acupuncture of the National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I obtained my Masters of Science in Acupuncture and an additional Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver, CO. I received my Bachelors of Science in Communications from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. I also completed a four year apprenticeship in Five Element Chinese Medicine with Judi Terrill, Five Element Master of Jade Woman Enterprises. In addition to being a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado, I am also on the Board of Directors for Jade Woman de La Londe. This 501©3 non-profit organization provides acupuncture to pediatric patients who have experienced trauma, growth, behavioral issues or other physical symptoms manifesting from causes that other medical modalities, including western medicine, have been unable to diagnose and treat successfully.
After suffering from various health issues and finding no real answers from my Medical Doctors, I tried Acupuncture at the suggestion of a good friend. My very first treatment was life changing. Hours after my treatment, I found myself researching this ancient medicine and was enrolled in school a few months later. After several sessions I found a balance in my life and a clarity I had never before experienced. Finally I had answers for my heart palpitations, IBS and chronic fatigue. And most importantly, Acupuncture helped me to conceive my second child without the intervention of western medical drugs. I was fascinated with how this 5000 year old medicine worked and was grateful to find a medical system that made sense and provided me with answers. I knew I had to make Acupuncture a part of my life and I knew it was my purpose to share this medicine with others.
It is my commitment to provide my patients with practical ways to implement holistic health into their everyday lives. I
am continuing education with post-graduate courses to bring you the highest caliber of alternative care. I continue my studies in 5-Element Acupuncture with Jade Woman Enterprises in Lakewood, CO. My focus is on Pediatrics and Family Medicine using the 5-Element, nature-based theory of Chinese Medicine. The 5 Element theory addresses all aspects of a person’s being, and sees people as a reflection of nature. I also am continuing my nutrition education with advanced technical training in Nutrition Response Testing℠.
I am a true believer in the power of this medicine and its guiding philosophy of balance and harmony. It is my goal to restore your health and vital energy on every level, increasing your quality of life. I feel blessed to support and nurture others as they find their way along their personal paths to wellness. I look forward to the opportunity of working together and supporting you on your journey.
