My Story

​My firsthand experience with chronic health conditions, including childhood diagnosis's with Type 1 Diabetes and Hashimoto's, fuels my commitment to creating an inclusive and equitable healthcare environment.

 

I am here to listen, understand, and tailor healthcare strategies that recognize the individuality within diverse intersections. ​​​​ ​

​Born and raised in Philadelphia, I grew up an avid fan of the arts, eventually attending the High School for Creative and Performing Arts where I majored in Vocal Music, and went on to sing in various indie/pop bands. Eventually looking to acupuncture to help treat a vocal chord injury.

In college, I studied Cultural Anthropology under a professor who taught a class on medical anthropology, laying a strong foundation for an interest of medical systems outside of allopathic medicine.

My journey as a licensed acupuncturist fuels a deep commitment to fostering inclusive and equitable healthcare environments. Endorsed by my instructors and supervisors for my exceptional intuition and sensitivity, I approach each client with profound care, embodying the spirit of compassion and dedication to alleviating suffering and improving lives.

Having trained under specialists in Sports Medicine and Acupuncture Physical Medicine, I specialize in treating physical pain and musculoskeletal conditions using channel theory, trigger point therapy, and motor point stimulation (neuromuscular acupuncture).

Worsley 5E acupuncture is a cornerstone of my practice, with a special emphasis on employing trauma-informed care and treating emotional regulation.

During an enriching experience as an intern with the Won’s "Go-To-Them" clinic, I delivered community treatments to veterans and rehabilitation centers in Philadelphia. These clinics focused on enhancing opioid rehabilitation program retention and addressing concerns such as addiction, insomnia, anxiety, and pharmaceutical dependency.

Throughout my practice, I've addressed a range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Chronic pain

  • Mental Health

  • Motivation and lethargy

  • Headaches

  • Stroke rehabilitation

  • Reproductive wellness

  • Gastrointestinal concerns

  • Pruritus (itchy skin)

  • Asthma

  • Long covid symptoms

  • Scar tissue

  • Partial tendon tears

  • Muscle strain

  • Arthritis 

  • Neuropathy
