Registered Acupuncturist and Herbalist

Illness is a message, a wake up call.  The body’s ability to heal is amazing, especially when we listen to it.  As a child I learned the value of listening to the body’s wisdom, and now practising Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) feels like coming home.

Offering acupuncture in a gentle, intuitive way, my priority is your comfort and holding a safe healing space to connect you to your own innate healing power. I also offer Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, Cupping, Food Cures, and self-healing/meditation resources with the goal of helping you create lasting, empowered shifts.

Having studied Acupuncture and TCM Herbology at ICTCMV, I have also completed numerous continuing education courses in my field. In addition to TCM studies, working under Master Healer Mada Dalian has brought a deeper awareness of the pivotal role repressed emotions play in our health, and the importance of addressing the mind, body, and spirit to truly heal.

While I enjoy treating a wide variety of conditions, I have a special interest in:

  • Emotional & Mental Health: sleep issues, insomnia, anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD
  • Chronic Illnesses: fibromyalgia, thyroid imbalances, adrenal fatigue, tinnitus
  • Pain Relief: back, neck, and shoulder pain, headaches, TMJ, sciatica, carpal tunnel
  • Digestion: bloating, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, acid reflux, nausea
  • Gynecology:  menstrual​ ​irregularities, PMS, STDs, cervical​ ​ripening
  • Immune system: Coughs, colds, sore throats, sinus issues, skin issues

Awards: Voted Best Acupuncturist in Vancouver in the Vancouver Courier’s Stars of Vancouver 2019 and 2020 Awards.

When not in clinic I enjoy hiking and exploring coastal trails, meditating, and spending time with loved ones, especially Ava, our 9 year old rabbit.

I am grateful to share the wisdom of TCM and help connect patients to their highest state of health. I would be honoured to be part of your healing journey.
