My Story

 

I started suffering from chronic health issues after college. And I tried everything modern science had to offer, but literally nothing helped. It was then that I went back to my family’s traditions in Eastern medicine. After weeks of treatment, the chronic pain lifted. I was amazed and curious to explore these ancient healing practices.

 

As a result of this healing experience, I wanted to learn more about Eastern medicine including acupuncture, lifestyle medicine, herbal medicine, and nutrition. That was twenty-four years ago, and I’ve been in clinical practice for 20 years, helping my patients the same way I was helped.  

This was also a time, I started to notice that many of my patients were stuck in negative patterns and mindsets that were dictating the quality of their mind+body health. Not only were negative belief patterns and habits consistently ruining their health, but these negative states were also acting as subconscious roadblocks to their natural healing.

 

What I realized was that no matter how hard these patients tried to improve their own health, if the underlying negative patterns, beliefs, and mindsets were not positively improved, then nothing would change. Now that I’d observed what was blocking them from enjoying abundant and radiant health, I wanted to help them make the transformative changes that would have a positive impact on the rest of their lives. 

 

It was in that moment that I decided to become a certified hypnotherapist. This would allow me the opportunity to help my struggling patients not only go deeper into their own negative belief systems and patterns, but to proactively change them. This would then lead to greater health, improved energy, better mental clarity, and a whole host of other amazing mind+body benefits. 

 

I'm in deep gratitude for the patients I've served. I'm continuously inspired by my patients and learn from their stories. I love helping my patients and I'm honored to be part of their health care and optimal wellness team.
