Work with me

My approach to medicine is informed by my years as a creative business consultant. I believe we are partnering together to achieve a shared vision, each of us with a role to play.

You are the visionary leader who outlines the picture we paint together. You are the expert on your life, your environment, the circumstances you must manage, how things feel inside your body-mind-spirit, what will and won’t work for your real life that you are living. You are the team detective, paying attention to details and getting more and more access to information to bring back for us to use together.

I am the consultant you’ve brought in to help you accomplish your vision. I am the team strategist, it’s my job to ask the right questions, help you to discover shifts in mindset or behavior, and to offer useful ideas that will get you where you want to go. I am the expert on how to use Chinese Medicine as one of the tools to help you achieve your vision.

Without a vision to inspire action, and detailed information to illuminate our thinking, we have no foundation on which to build a strategic plan. So you bring these to the table.

Without a strategic plan and knowledge to implement it, actions are lethargic and lead to unpredictable outcomes. So I bring those to the table.

Partnering together, working in concert toward a clear vision, we have everything we need to succeed.

I do not accept health insurance. You may request a receipt to file with your insurance.

Money is tricky in our culture – it’s all mixed up with our sense of worth and deservingness, but our finances have little to do with these intrinsic qualities. I have been blessed with generous help more times than I can name in my life, and it is my privilege to offer the same for others. If cost is a barrier to care, please feel warmly welcome to ask about a personalized sliding scale price for treatments during your screening call.
