Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is patient-centered in every way. It is always my intention to listen closely with undivided attention, design a holistic treatment plan tailored to address your unique needs, and partner with you to overcome health imbalances and sustain wellness.

5 Pillars of Health Care

A strong foundation of patient-centered care is reflected in all aspects of my practice. The 5 pillars of health care at Inner Rivers Family Acupuncture include:

1. Exceptional quality of care based on skillfulness, safety, and competency
2. Compassionate professionalism built on trust, respect, privacy, and integrity
3. One-on-one, individualized treatments that focus on you as a whole person
4. Cultivation of mindfulness about your health and wellbeing
5. Collaborative partnership to support a healthier and happier you!

Working Together

Do you feel like you are the only one advocating for your health? Are you carrying all of the burden and getting less-than-favorable results? Have you tried everything to no avail? When you walk into my office, I want you to know that I am here for you. You are my highest priority. We will work together, moving beyond any set backs and celebrating every accomplishment. I will never judge you; instead, I will work with you to achieve your health goals and prevent illness. At Inner Rivers Family Acupuncture, you never have to feel ashamed about who you are or what ails you. I will support you in every way that I can, to a degree that is both comfortable and sustainable for you.

A Balanced Approach to Health

My balanced approach to health includes a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, and lifestyle recommendations. It involves gradual changes that the mind and body can absorb gently and more easily maintain over time. Be patient with yourself and trust in your body's amazing ability to heal itself. I am here to kindly nudge your body back into balance through the complex - yet remarkable! - system of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine that has withstood the test of time as an effective, powerful way to overcome health complaints naturally.

Individualized Care

At Inner Rivers Family Acupuncture, I will develop a customized treatment strategy that is specific for you, and only you. Everyone is different and you deserve to be treated as such. For example, three patients may present with a main complaint of insomnia (inability to sleep adequately). Instead of prescribing all three patients with a particular sleep medication, I employ a more versatile toolbox to determine the underlying root cause of each individual's insomnia. All three patients may have insomnia for very different reasons; therefore, each patient deserves a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific presentation. At Inner Rivers Family Acupuncture, I take into account all of the unique details that comprise your condition (such as insomnia) and work with you to treat and eliminate the origin of your complaint and its associated symptoms, naturally and without side effects.
