To get to do what I do, I completed a three-year Master's degree in acupuncture and became nationally certified by the National Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. For two additional years I trained with master practitioner and author Lonny Jarrett (www.spiritpathpress.com). For another 18 months I studied under renowned practitioners Kiiko Matsumoto (www.kiiko.com) and David Euler (www.davideuler.com). There are at least another half-dozen exceptional teachers and practitioners I have studied under, each giving me additional tools to treat illness, pain and problems that just make it hard to get on with the activities that make life meaningful. Every year I pursue additional training, always seeking to find the fastest and most effective approaches for my patients, even for those mystery conditions that no one else seems to have answers for. My love of Chinese Medicine lead me to be a co-founder of the Acupuncture Society of D.C. in 2003 (www.dcacupuncture.org), for which I was the President for three years until January of 2015. I have represented our profession to the FDA in hearings, published articles (www.AcupunctureToday.com), and spear-headed a committee at a former national organization (AAOM). I was also honored to be a guest on the Diane Rehm Show in an interview titled Medical Acupuncture. All this has been a joy and privilege. But best of all is relieving people of pain and discomfort or helping couples conceive. Ready to try acupuncture? Contact me.
