As a licensed acupuncturist in the State of Alaska and a Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM®), I am thrilled to share the gifts of acupuncture with anyone looking to find long-term health and ease in their life. My first experience with Classical Five-Element Acupuncture was in April 2012. I heard acupuncture could help with fatigue (I was recovering from a car accident). My massage therapist suggested I try Classical Five-Element Acupuncture (or 5E for short). What I noticed after that first session was I felt like I was reconnected to myself and the environment, I felt light-hearted, I could laugh, there was a sense of connection and ease. It felt like the pain and frustration I had felt for the past few months was no longer the center of my attention, the burden had been lifted so I could see outside my pain and connect with something more.

After studying and practicing this medicine, I have learned that Classical Five-Element Acupuncture’s approach to health aligns with my inner values that nature knows more than we can ever know and that treating the root cause of disease can provide relief to immediate symptoms, AND it can provide a network of healing that allows for the possibility of other benefits as well. I came to acupuncture to help with the tremendous fatigue and neck pain I was feeling months after my accident. I didn’t realize that old patterns/habits could also change even though I never mentioned them as ‘health concerns.’ Examples include feeling more light-hearted and able to be with my current situation, better sleep, less anxiety, more balanced mood, feeling more connected to myself, and my environment, and simply feeling in sync with life and the moment. As a practitioner of this unique medicine it is such a gift to hear feedback from clients that Classical Five-Element Acupuncture has supported them to feel better in themselves, healthier, relaxed, at ease, and connected.

I earned my Master’s in Classical Five-Element Acupuncture at the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture in 2018 (www.itea.edu), one of the only US schools teaching Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture.

In my past career, I worked as a director of a non profit working to increase resources and services for people experiencing traumatic brain injury in Alaska. Over this time I witnessed a need for resources that promote healing and creates a space for individuals to feel harmony and peace within themselves while they are healing. I found iRest® meditation during my recovery and have shared it with as many people as possible since. This meditation technique is effective for a variety of conditions and is most notably used in the military to support military members and family members dealing with PTSD. It is simply a meditation process, but it has a tremendous effect on mental health and well-being. I became Alaska’s first certified iRest® teacher in 2014.

I look forward to working with you and being a partner on your health team.

FAMILY & BACKGROUND: I grew up in Bakersfield, CA, though I was born in Rock Springs, WY. Growing up I was busy playing sports and working in the family business. After graduating from college, I moved to Talkeetna, AK for a fun summer of raft guiding. I fell in love with Alaska. After a few fun summers, I left the state and returned in 2006 to a new life in Anchorage where I worked as the Executive Director for a start-up non profit. I met my husband in Anchorage. We moved to Colorado so I could complete my educating/training in acupuncture. We were eager to return to Alaska, making our home in Juneau to raise our kids and return to the roots where my husband was born and raised. We have two beautiful children and can be found outside as much as possible.
