Covid was the mother of invention for me as I ended up converting my longstanding brick-and-mortar acupuncture practice into a house-call-only model, and it has stuck! Making the rounds is working well and I don't have plans to reopen an office at this time.

Also during the pandemic, I obtained a Master of Social Work degree and am working toward independent licensure as an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker). By 2025, I plan to offer psychotherapy in a private practice.


If you are seeking in-office acupuncture treatment, please
contact me and I will be happy to provide referrals.
