I believe healing is the art of transformation. The alchemy of change. Poetry embodied in biology. The power of choice, coming from a deep presence and self-awareness that makes dreams a reality. As the Taoists would say, “the only constant is change”. And so my goal is to help you discover how to be more consistently in a state of empowered flow, effortlessly allowing your life to harmonize with the rhythms of your true nature, and finding alignment with true health and well-being.

I live for the “ah-ha!” moments in life, those seemingly mundane, yet everyday realizations like lightning strikes of insight, or soft unfoldings of understanding, that disperse the clouds of doubt, confusion and judgement. Embodied experiences that transform all levels of one’s being; integrating mind, body, and spirit. “The journey is the destiny”, a wise woman once said, and working with these ancient healing technologies has the ability to re-awaken your innate self-healing capacities and re-ignite your curiosity and engagement with the journey.  

A bit about my background. I grew up in Southern California, a bookworm from the beginning. My greatest friend my imagination, I was always engrossed in tales of faeries and heroines on epic journeys in mythical lands. Fast forward to college, I was an out-of-the-closet nerd studying 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 even graduated, I was enrolled to begin my studies at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine, which sounded to me as close to Hogwarts as I could get 😉 As someone who looks for magic everywhere, I found it in the healing arts and the science of life. 

This opened the doors to immersing myself in the deep alchemical wisdom of Chinese Medicine. By the close of 2013, I had graduated summa cum laude with my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, my Masters in TCM Acupuncture, and certified in Craniosacral Therapy.

To broaden my experience, I have travelled to Guatemala to work in a free field clinic, studied with many wonderful teachers and elders in the Wise Women herbal community, and medicine men in the Jamaican bush. The study of medicine is a forever kinda pursuit and passion. After 7 years of comprehensive study, the depth and breadth of elegance and dynamic complexity within the interrelated systems of the human body, mind, and spirit continues to amaze, humble, and inspire me.

Through blending East and West, ancient and cutting-edge, I offer a unique weaving of scientific technologies with sage wisdom, practices and philosophies, to activate and catalyze your healing journey.

I hope this comprehensive approach provides:

  • a framework for self-revelation and understanding of how your physiology dances with your emotional well-being,
  • your spiritual alignment with your neuroregulatory systems,
  • your biochemical process 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.  

From my own experience, I know that nourished human beings lead to a better world for all beings everywhere. So I am deeply inspired to help others discover how to 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 and gifts of life.
