My Story

I've been working with various forms of healing since 1995.  That was when I took my first herbal medicine class.... and in an instant I knew that my life had changed.  Over the next 6 years, I learned everything that I could about herbs..... how to grow them, how to process them, how to use them, and how to start to begin to connect to the spirit of the plants.

My love of herbs led me to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.  It may seem like a strange progression, but the Chinese are master herbalists, and their way of diagnosing the body and knowing which herbs to use was both fascinating and intriguing to me.  Acupuncture school was an amazing and eye opening experience.  I learned so much, and made lifelong friends and colleagues.  It was also here that I first heard about the healing modality of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).  After almost 4 years of intense study, I graduated in 2004 from Five Branches University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Santa Cruz with my Masters in TCM.

I opened my acupuncture and herbal practice in 2004 in Ventura, CA.  I loved having a healing practice, and after 7 years, I decided to go back to school to get my doctorate.  Moving back to Santa Cruz in 2011, I entered the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program at Five Branches, ultimately graduating from the program in 2015.

It was during the time of studying for my doctorate that I started to crash and burn.  I had always had a very sensitive system, but the stress and fatigue of going back to school while still running a clinic, and also interning for the doctoral program, and teaching at the acupuncture school sent me into a deep downward spiral of absolute exhaustion and emotional/mental burnout.  I started getting a lot of anxiety and depression, and even agoraphobia.  My body could no longer handle the life that I had built for myself.

In my rock bottom moments of just trying to survive and make it through my days, I rediscovered Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).  Once again, I devoured everything I could about a healing modality, this time with EFT.  I used it on anything and everything (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual).... and my life started changing. 

I started adding EFT into my acupuncture practice around 2014.  It was such a powerful healing modality that I started incorporating it into acupuncture sessions where applicable.  It was during this time that I started to recognize and nurture my clairsentience - the ability to feel and perceive energy, as well as my clairvoyance.  I could feel and see others emotions and energy so strongly, that I had a great understanding of what needed healing. 

In 2018, my husband and I moved across the country to Asheville, NC.  I closed the doors to my acupuncture practice, not sure if I would reopen them again.  

In 2019 and 2020 I started to do a deep dive into energy healing, channeling, mediumship, and sound healing.  I started to heal myself on a deep level.  Over the past few years, I have regained my strength, energy and vitality.  I started studying astrology as well, and realized that it is written in my astrological chart that I will go through many transformations in my life - that I will be drawn to healing, both for myself and for others - that my health will be my "Achilles heel", but that once I learn how to transform it, it will become my greatest gift.

In early 2023 I started feeling the push from the Universe and my guides to reopen a healing practice, but to restructure it a little differently from the practice that I had in the past.  I absolutely love acupuncture, but feel that my healing style has evolved into offerings that can be done from any location.  Bright Light Healing sessions are done online over Zoom.

I'd be honored to partner with you in your healing journey.
