Meet your healthcare practitioner

Hi, I'm Lynn.

With more than 20 years of experience in holistic health, I am a California and nationally licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. While I specialize in mental health, psycho-emotional issues, gastrointestinal problems, women’s health, and pain management, the scope of my practice is not limited to those conditions alone. I’m here to help you with your physical and emotional concerns.

As your healthcare provider, I will treat you as a whole person, not just your illness, injury, or disease. When you come in, you can expect an atmosphere dedicated to healing, an attentive and listening ear, and a gentle and comprehensive approach of care and treatment so that you may live your best life.

My journey into Chinese medicine began with a number of unsettling and seemingly random symptoms that upended my daily life. I underwent test after test and received neither answers nor treatment. That all changed, however, when I met with an acupuncturist for the first time. She understood exactly what was going on, provided a TCM diagnosis and treatment plan. With regular visits, I was back to myself, except now with a drive to learn this amazing medicine. I received my Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, graduated as the valedictorian, and continue to study this healing craft in order to help others find their way back to health.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two kids and golden retriever, organic gardening, cooking, being outdoors, practicing yoga, and traveling.
