Owner of Three Moons Acupuncture

My interest in traditional Chinese medicine began while I was living in Los Angeles and studying Wing Chun Kung Fu.  Already having a Bachelor’s Degree in Western medicine as a veterinary technician and learning Eastern philosophy through my martial arts studies, I began looking for a way to merge the two so I could continue helping people.

I began looking into acupuncture and being in Los Angeles, there were plenty of options.  I found Yo San University and immediately felt right at home.  Once accepted into their program, I knew I had found my career path.  And it just so happened that I also suffered a knee injury while I was attending college.  While this could have been looked upon as a setback, it actually gave me the opportunity to experience what I had been studying in school.  And within a few weeks, without any physical therapy or prescription medications, my knee was back to normal.  A true testament to the power of this ancient medicine.

I am a big proponent of natural healing methods and I am fascinated with the human mind and body.  We are designed to heal ourselves with the proper nutrition, rest and preventive care.  This is where traditional Chinese medicine excels and what I try to incorporate into my acupuncture practice on a daily basis.  I love what this medicine can do

My goal is to help as many people as possible and show them the beauty of this medicine.  I have a four pillar focus in my practice that includes pain relief, stress, anxiety and depression management.  I enjoy helping people feel and cope better with the everyday stressors of life, because when there is less stress and anxiety, there is better health.  And my promise to you is that I will not give up on helping you achieve your health and wellness goals.
