While she does not specialize in any one area of Chinese medicine, she sees many patients for chronic pain, chronic illnesses like myalgic encephalitis, as well as anxiety and depression. She is certified in Integrative Somatic Parts Work and is currently obtaining certification in Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy. Her studies incorporate the work of Dr. Peter Levine, Bessel Van Der Kolk, Dr. Arielle Schwartz, Susan McConnell and others in addressing how the body holds past experiences of emotional and physical pain. It emphasizes a body-centered approach to healing over a purely cognitive approach.
