I have been studying and using natural medicine for my own health since the early 1980's with western herbal medicine and nutrition at the Santa Fe College of Natural Medicine. After using these modalities for several years, I began searching for something that would truly help me understand treatment of the body as a whole . Chinese Medicine offered me that and I went on to study at Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine. After graduating in 1997 I came to Portland OR to set up my practice. Here in Portland I continue to study classical Chinese Herbalism and work daily towards a better understanding of how to best apply this intricate medicine .
