Values

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for LGBQ-identified patients?

Our clinic consists of myself, my receptionist and my shy 20 pound dog, Cooper. The clinic itself is a calm environment. We are accepting and want you to feel comfortable and safe in our clinic. This message is easily portrayed when you first walk in the door.

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?

See above.

Please describe the ways in which you are involved in LGBTQ community outside of your practice (ex: Do you attend conferences on working with LGBTQ clients? Are you involved in local organizations that serve these communities? etc).

I have been a member of the GSBA as well as a volunteer and supporter of the scholarship program through the GSBA.

What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?

I have been practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine since 2002 and have successfully treated many conditions including but not limited to anxiety, depression, autoimmune diseases, digestive issues, women's health, allergies, cold/flu, headaches, tendonitis and pain. My mission is to help support you and your health as naturally as possible.
