My Background

Line separator

I received my Diploma of Acupuncture from the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences in 2012 after four year of study in both acupuncture and herbal medicine.

 

As well as running my own clinic in Wolfville NS, I served as Director of Standards of Practice on the board of the CMAAC-NS (Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Assoc. of Canada) and worked to bring the professional standardization of Chinese Medicine to Nova Scotia.

I have also enjoyed the rewarding experience of  teaching Internal Medicine at the College of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Halifax Nova Scotia.

I also hold a Diploma of Social Work from Grant MacEwan University, and have worked for many years as a counsellor and community  advocate. I bring these supportive skills and training to my current clinical practice.

My Approach

Line separator
Fallows = Grounded  

My style is equal parts Practical  and  Holistic.

I believe strongly in the ability of Chinese Medicine to help and heal. Everything natural however, is not necessarily healthy. I can help you navigate the fad products and new popular diets so you can avoid harm, and find what is healthy for your unique situation.

 

I enjoy an integrated approach to medicine and feel that Chinese Medicine works well when intelligently balanced with Allopathic Medicine. Some people think they have to choose one over the other. I believe that balance and consistency is the key.

The motto of my school of Chinese Medicine is "Through oneself, know others". I have a rich life experience that grounds my clinical practice and share with my patients. I continue to delve deeper into Chinese Medicine, considering it a lifelong pursuit and calling.
