I am a California Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist.
I provide affordable, high quality, compassionate care. My focus is on supporting each patient’s health and wellness naturally through integrative acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutraceuticals. My passion is to aid you in the restoration of your naturally healthy state, to cultivate your optimal well being.
My work stems from a deep desire to help people overcome emotional and physical challenges by improving their total wellbeing. I specializes in chronic or acute pain, hormonal imbalances, infertility, menopause, chronic illnesses, and stress management. In addition to acupuncture, I use a variety of healing modalities including nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, Reiki and many needle-free acupuncture enhancing protocols.
I received my Masters in Acupuncture from DULA University in Los Angeles where I studied under clinical mentor Dr. Heiwan Lee, highly regarded teachers Dr. Shi, author of “Essentials of Chinese Internal Medicine” and Dr. Wilcox LAc the author of “Moxibustion:The Power of Mugwort Fire” and “A Modern Clinical Handbook”. While at DULA I received the highest marks, numerous scholarships and was honored as class Valedictorian. My studies were complemented by intensives with noted TCM scholar Beyoung Choi. I am currently a doctorate candidate at DULA.
Before undertaking the study of Classical Chinese Medicine, I completed several years of undergraduate training in Veterinary science in Istanbul. I went on to study Reiki and have been a practitioner since 1990. Further deepening my interest in natural health approaches, I trained and certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy.
My personal journey through several health experiences, including infertility, IVF, chronic fatigue, autoimmune syndromes including Epstein-Barr and Lyme’s disease has deepened my insight and skill with the powerful healing modalities that integrate the mind-body connection. To enhance that focus, I am currently certifying in advanced NET, an integrated set of protocols that produce remarkable healing results. I’m also working with noted Turkish physician, Dr Aret Kamar to develop acupuncture protocols for women experiencing infertility.
