About Me

I have been in the business of helping people to live their best lives and to support people in difficult times since 1996.

I  am a native of Northern California, studied cultural geography at California State University San Francisco and have traveled to 28 countries.

I have a Masters degree in Oriental Medicine, M.Ac.,O. M. and a licensed Acupuncturist, L.Ac. emeritus. I have worked with patients in my private clinic for 22 years treating difficult issues including cancer, chronic pain, post stroke complications, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Additionally, I have worked as a provider of Acupuncture for hospice as well as being a volunteer. She has also been an attendant at many births.

I have retired from clinical practice and have begun working in this field in order to be of service to a larger problem.


I am a spiritual pragmatist who is a certified Death Doula who strives to find beauty and meaning in moments and interactions knowing the finitude of my life as well.


I live with my husband, son and dog in Sacramento. My favorite things include dancing, kayaking with whales and cooking healthy savory food.
