This is truly Integrative care!


Conditions Treated: I have experience treating a wide variety of conditions, especially pain, depression/anxiety, women’s health and digestive issues. At this time, I am especially motivated to provide affordable care to those experiencing difficulties associated with hormone imbalances associated with the peri/menopausal process, especially symptoms such as anxietydepression and insomnia that can seriously interrupt our ability to function in our lives. Are you 35 – 55 and things feel like they’re falling apart? I know what you’re going through and I’d love to be part of your support team as you move through this major life transition!

But I can and do treat, or help treat, a wide range of conditions and symptoms. Let’s chat!

Who I work with: Friendly, curious, open-minded people who are willing to look into their habits, take responsibility for their healing process, and allow it to unfold at its own pace. I do not work with children at this time.

Treatment: Clients will receive private, one-on-one, consultations and treatments in my cozy office in Portland, Oregon. Treatments may also include cupping, moxibustion and mini-abhyanga (Ayurvedic oil application) when appropriate.

Cash, check or credit cards, HSA/FSA’s accepted.
