About Me:


I became interested in alternative medicine as a teenager after seeing family members succumb to illnesses that in some cases could have been prevented. I observed that the traditional western medical approaches, at that time, were not offering any kind of meaningful preventative care.

I devoted myself to four years of rigorous training in acupuncture and Chinese medicine (followed by over twenty years of advanced study) so that I could professionally offer a viable path toward wellness for those that find themselves in the difficult crossroads of illness. In 1990 I began to immerse myself in the study and practice of meditation and have taught meditation for many years. I also have had the good fortune to study Qi Gong with Larry Johnson, a lineage holder of Hua Shan Taoist Qi Gong and have since become a teacher myself with his blessing.
