Healing is the art of transformation.  A shift from one state of consciousness into a more favorable one. Cultivating a deep presence and self-awareness guides us in making empowered choices that manifest our dreams into reality.

As the Taoists say so eloquently, “the only constant is change”.  Thus, my goal is to help you discover how to tune in to and maintain a state of empowered flow, embodying true health and well-being, and aligning mind body and spirit to that which is your True Nature.  

The journey IS the destination.

I live for the “ah-ha!” moments in life. Those realizations of some deeper truth that come through like lightning strikes of insight, or soft unfoldings of understanding. Those moments of clarity that disperse the clouds of doubt, confusion and judgement making way for deeper insight and awareness and shifts in perspective. Embodied experiences that transform all levels of one’s being; integrating mind, body, and spirit. Many of my own ‘ah-ha’ moments have come through studying and working with these ancient healing technologies, which have the ability to re-awaken our innate self-healing capacities and re-ignite our curiosity and engagement with the journey that is this life. Through blending East and West, ancient and new-age, I offer a unique weaving of scientific technologies with sage wisdom, practices and philosophies, to activate and catalyze your healing journey.

My Story

I grew up in Southern California, in the desert cityscapes of Los Angeles. From an early age I escaped into books to explore other worlds, always engrossed in tales of epic adventures in mythical lands. Fast forward to college, I was an out-of-the-closet nerd interfacing my imagination with the study of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at UC San Diego, receiving my Bachelors of Science in 2009. During these years, my own health concerns initiated me on a path of self-discovery, nutrition, and healing. Before I had even graduated, I enrolled to begin my medical school training at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine, which sounded to me as close to Hogwarts as I could get. It was not Hogwarts, of course, but a nationally accredited 4-year medical school program. Embarking on this path also introduced me to the deep alchemical wisdom of Chinese Medicine, setting me up to be a bridge between the worlds of science, medicine, and spirituality.

Over the course of my years in school, I travelled to Guatemala to work in a field clinic, studied with medicine men in the Jamaican bush, and discovered a love for indigenous healing traditions. By the close of 2013, I graduated summa cum laude with my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, my Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, and additional certification in Craniosacral Therapy.

As a seeker of the mystical, I continue to find the answers in the healing arts and the science of life. Every single day, the depth and breadth and dynamic complexity of this human experience continues to amaze, humble, and inspire me.

My Mission

From my own experience, I know that nourished and awake human beings lead to a better world for all beings everywhere. I am deeply inspired to help others discover how to uniquely express their gifts, activate their latent capabilities, and be productive and creative in whatever it is that makes you feel alive and passionate and empowered. To live a more embodied life. One with deeper awareness of the sacredness of every moment.

I hope this comprehensive approach provides:

  • a framework for self-revelation and understanding of how your physiology dances with your emotional well-being,
  • insight into how your spiritual alignment effects your neuroregulatory systems,
  • awareness of the interplay between your biochemical processes with your genetic and elemental make-up,
  • and empower your own agency and sovereignty in accessing that deep inner alchemy that already knows how to transform, how to heal, and how to play with these dynamic landscapes.
