FOUNDER | ACUPUNCTURIST + HERBALIST

After 12 years in practice, I wake up every day passionate about helping you achieve optimal health, whatever that means to you. My goal is to demystify Traditional Chinese Medicine and translate the perspective and philosophy into something usable and understandable. I am deeply rooted in logic and rich in experience.

We built Common Point — a modern approach to acupuncture — to make Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture more accessible. 

All of our programs have a foundation in the Basics: Simple rules in health that you should always return to. We’re lucky to have a world of health information at our fingertips, and while most of it’s meant to be helpful, the sheer volume of it all can be overwhelming. Yes, there will always be new studies, findings, and remedies. But when you distill it all down, there are certain foundational principles in health that will always remain true—no matter what.

ACUPUNCTURIST + HERBALIST

I’m a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. I earned my Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine (MSTOM) from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York. After graduating, I maintained a private practice while also working in a thriving and high-volume practice, City Acupuncture of New York. There I was able to see and treat many and varied conditions, while refining my skills and treatment strategies.

I put a pause on my clinical practice to focus on family while my kids were still little. I’m thrilled to return to regular practice at Common Point. I love what I do because, in every treatment, there’s a possibility for healing. I particularly enjoy working with new parents. I also have a passion for dermatological cases, as they are often very challenging. 

As a parent, woman, and human, I consider it a privilege to practice greater empathy and humanity with every individual treatment.

I live in Brooklyn with my husband and two boys, Clark and Fox.

ACUPUNCTURIST + HERBALIST

I love acupuncture because it incorporates the whole of a person, treating mind and body in order to promote healing and restore health. I believe in a holistic and integrative approach to medicine and my passion for acupuncture lies in its ability to harness the body’s internal resources and offer effective, non-invasive and natural relief for many common ailments, especially those that have not responded to other modalities.

I began my journey with East Asian Medicine after receiving my first acupuncture treatment at the age of seven. Ever since, I’ve seen and experienced its benefits both firsthand, and for my family, friends and patients. I especially love treating women’s health, sleep health, emotional and digestive related issues. 

I’m a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist certified by the California Acupuncture Board. In addition, I am nationally certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM)®. I received my Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) and Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and my B.A. from the University of California, Santa Cruz.  

I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Seth, and our dog Wendy.
