  • Diplomat of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM)

I am a NCCAOM (National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) Certified Acupuncturist. In addition to Acupuncture, I also use several other treatment modalities to help my patients; these include Chinese Herbs and Patents, Tui Na, Acupressure, Electro-Acupuncture, TDP heat lamps, Cupping, Gua Sha and Myofacial Release.

I was born and raised in Australia where I earned my Bachelor of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy at the University of Adelaide. I am a Registered Occupational Therapist and have over 24 years of experience and education in western medical rehabilitation and have worked in Australia , Canada and the United States. I enjoy working with patients to help them achieve their maximum functional potential.

I am currently accepting new patients and I am also available to give talks on the benefits of acupuncture for varying diagnosis.

  • Pain Management
  • Menopause and Gynecology

Insurance Billing

Contracted as an “in network” provider with the following companies:

  • Aetna
  • First Choice
  • Premera
  • Lifewise
  • Regence
  • Uniform
  • Will also submit PIP auto insurance claims

If contracted with your insurance, I will submit claims for you. If, however, I am not contracted with your plan, a payment request is made at time of service. My receipt may be submitted in many cases as an “out of network” provider. Please check with your individual insurance provider for “out of network” coverage for acupuncture.

Office Visit

In this system of medicine each treatment builds on the previous one. I individualize each treatment plan according to the specific condition being treated. Generally, acute conditions respond more quickly than chronic conditions. Patients will usually begin to see positive changes within the first few treatments. I also encourage follow up care to prevent symptoms from recurring and to maintain wellness. The first office call is 75- 90 minutes long, with any subsequent return office call being 45-60 minutes long.
