I'm an acupuncturist and massage therapist with previous work experience in church ministry, human services, and human resources in the nonprofit sector. Having been interested in natural health my whole life, I decided to pursue natural health as a career after healing from cancer.


I studied Traditional Oriental Medicine at Pacific College in New York, a masters degree program that was about half anatomy and physiology and half Oriental medicine, including clinical work in acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and massage.

I have been in private practice since 2007, treating patients with a wide variety of health conditions including acute and chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, neurological problems, endocrine imbalances, anxiety, depression, addiction, cancer, cardiovascular, respiratory and immune disorders.

I firmly believe in our ability to heal ourselves by paying close attention to our feelings and the messages our bodies are sending us in the form of symptoms. The therapies I offer are a way to help my patients experience a relaxed awareness that facilitates Qi flow and healing.

About Open Pathways to Health

My clinical practice has four major aspects:

1. Therapy

      Acupuncture, massage, herbs and nutritional interventions relieve symptoms and help you relax and heal more quickly.

2. Individual Health Consultations (in person or online)

     I will teach you to interpret the signs and symptoms you are experiencing so you can monitor your own health, and suggest specific treatments, nutrition and lifestyle changes that will help you feel better.

3. Workshops

     No matter our age or where we are in terms of ability or disease, there is always a way to feel better. The journey toward improving health is frequently the road less traveled, made easier by encouragement from friends along the way. 

4. Online communications

     We are potentially our own best healers, with direct personal insight into how our body-mind is doing.  There is no therapy, medication or supplement that can grant or restore health; although others can help only we can do that for ourselves. My blog posts offer inspiration and information to make it easier to keep on a path toward better health. Subscribe here.
