I have a strong desire to help our community, particularly with Stress, Anxiety, Trauma, PTSD and Addiction, which affect many in the LGBTQ community. I also focus on pain, orthopedic injury and internal medicine, from sleep issues to digestive disorders, strengthening the immune system, skin disorders and so on. I have a passion for self-nourishment and wellness, and am also a certified Functional Nutrition Holistic Health Coach. Acupuncture helped me heal from numerous injuries sustained in the US Army and I wanted to become an acupuncturist to help other people heal. Acupuncture can help with issues of the psycho-emotional and I strongly believe in getting both talk therapy or other professional mental health therapies and acupuncture at the same time for best outcomes.
