I have a passion for working with women to help them reach their fullest potential in health. I am a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and herbal medicine amongst other therapies. I feel an integrative approach is best and am always happy to communicate with your other health care providers to ensure no stone goes unturned in your care.
For over 10 years I've been providing acupuncture and herbal medicine therapies to women at all stages of life. I have a passion for helping women during pregnancy and postpartum and have completed additional training in this area.
I earned a B.S. in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University and in 2009 graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine where I earned my Master's in Traditional Oriental Medicine. I have practiced in a wide variety of settings including community acupuncture, at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases and onsite acupuncture for IVF patients at RMA Westside (formerly known as St. Luke's Roosevelt). Over the years I've continued to study and learn, most recently completed a certificate in clinical practice, research literacy and professional outreach through MAMPS, a prestigious group of prenatal acupuncturists led by the world's authorities in the field. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience via articles on my website and am currently working on a yearlong project which will highlight maternity acupuncture research.
