I began as an intern for an established fertility acupuncture practice in 2004. That experience really helped shape and support my idea of where I wanted to take my practice. Working with them I moved to Dallas to open and direct 2 acupuncture clinics. In 2012 I decided it was time to go out on my own. Having the foundation of working with this practice gave me the confidence and experience to continue in this field of fertility acupuncture and I love it. I continue to grow and educate myself so I can continue to provide top of the line care for my patients and be informed by the most recent research coming out of our medicine.
Stress is a huge one, educating patients on proper hydration and nutrition. I show my acupuncture and fertility acupuncture patients ways to implement simplicity in their life. This helps them switch off the constant fight or flight stage we all seem to be living in. My main areas of expertise are; irregular menses, PMS, peri and post menopause, infertility, headaches, and digestive issues. I enjoy helping with the “hormone havoc”.
To change how we look at preconception and postpartum care. Proper preparation can lead to healthier, smarter babies and a better outcome for maternal postpartum recovery on a physical, mental, and emotional level.
I believe I’ve been able to establish myself as one of the premier fertility acupuncturists in Dallas. However, I have much bigger goals on the horizon. As a result, I will be adding online diet and nutritional counseling that is based on blood and genetic testing. Lots more to come in 2019!
Finding and maintaining the ever elusive work\life balance. My nature is to try to help – always. I’ve learned over the years (sometimes the same lesson multiple times in different ways) that in order for me to provide the level of care my patients deserve, I need to take better care of myself even though sometimes it may feel like I am being selfish.
My practice is a place for people to truly unload and relax. It’s a space of trust and non-judgment where you can learn how to help yourself be a healthier you.
