I am an associate clinic faculty member in the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program at Northwestern Health Sciences University. I am a supervising clinician for the University’s teaching clinics and am in private practice.
I care for my patients by assessing lifestyle and nutrition choices and applying Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches to their treatment plan – those approaches employ the use of acupuncture and Oriental medicine and therapies.
I treat patients who suffer from many disorders, but I specialize in food allergies, digestive disorders, anxiety, depression and infertility. I am experienced in treating autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). I also treat adrenal and thyroid disorders by helping to regulate the endocrine system through the use of Chinese herbs and acupuncture.
I serve as the acupuncture chair for the American Holistic Medical Association.
