My personal journey with acupuncture began because I had suffered from allergies and headaches since I was a child. I was told I would “outgrow” these symptoms, but did not as an adult. After receiving acupuncture and taking herbs for a few months I was symptom free.
This experience opened my eyes to the many benefits of the medicine. I now combine my knowledge in Western medicine with Eastern philosophy to treat all stages of life. I recognize everyone has a unique “story” and I will listen to help you unravel your areas of imbalance and provide the best care for your situation.
I’m also concerned about the growing number of illness in children and medications given to them at such a young age. That is why I am passionate about family practice and working with pediatrics and helping to educate parents on healthy alternatives. I incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine, cranial sacral therapy, Japanese Acupuncture, breath work, sound therapy, and gentle non-insertion needle techniques for children to provide the best results.
I look forward to helping you maintain your biggest asset, your health.

Being an Acupuncturist is so satisfying because it provides a framework through which one can see deeply into the human condition, draw on a lifetime of experience and using simple tools have remarkable positive effects on others lives. As a student, I was torn between Life Sciences and Fine Arts. The latter won out, and that combined with my personal spiritual practice, I developed a strong interest in Eastern Cultures and worldview.
Following school, I apprenticed under a master cabinetmaker and spent years in custom woodworking and as artist’s assistant. I first experienced acupuncture in 1997 as a patient seeking relief from nagging painful overuse injuries related to the physical demand of my job. After my first appointment I experienced tremendous relief. Along with curiosity, I soon realized that there was a way to combine my interests and a passion for helping others into a particular set of skills and that I had found my right livelihood. I enrolled in the NW Institute that fall and graduated in 2000.
I have now been in practice nearly twenty years; in Burien since 2004 in association with Advanced Massage. I am very excited to be embarking on this new phase of my carrier with the founding of Burien Family Acupuncture and am please to be working along side Denise Voll whom I have known since we were Acupuncture students together.
I work with a variety of conditions and all ages, tending more to adults and older patients. A primary part of my practice is injuries of all sorts-from chronic overuse, sports injuries and motor vehicle accidents. So many people these days are over stressed leading to digestive, respiratory, anxiety, sleep problems, fatigue etc…
Traditional Chinese Medicine helps untangle that web and puts people back on track leading to better health and over all well being.
