I am passionate about exploring and weaving the universal wisdom of ancient traditions with the personal embodied experience of nature and the cosmos. When we enter our deepest questions, most bewildering dilemmas and confusing paradoxes resourced in our whole being- including our fluid interaction with the sensate world- a new narrative is created that is transformational and large enough to contain all that life brings. In this way we are more able to engage in a creative, dynamic partnership with change.
I have been a practitioner of the healing arts for almost two decades drawing upon the traditions of Chinese Medicine, Taoism, inner alchemy, indigenous wisdom, mythology, art, nature, cosmos and Mystery. As an avid student of life, I believe that there is nothing that we cannot learn from and there is always more to discover! Among the many traditions and teachings I continue to learn from, some of my greatest teachers include my two grown children and my wonderfully spirited, curious and adventuresome grandson. I bring deep compassion, acceptance, creativity, humor and the spirit of adventure to my work.
I hold a master’s level diploma in Acupuncture from Middle Way Acupuncture Institute, Advanced Craniosacral training from Ursula Popp, a diploma in massage therapy from Port Townsend School of Massage, and Alchemical Acupuncture mentorship with Lorie Dechar. I am licensed by the State of Washington as an Acupuncturist/East Asian Medicine Practitioner and Massage Therapist.
