Traditional Chinese medicine is useful for conditions where western medicine may not be achieving a good result, medications are not tolerated well, and is especially effective in the treatment of chronic conditions. I treat all conditions (conventional medicine may be required) unless a person needs emergency care.  It is common for patients to have exhausted all other treatment modalities before coming to me; yet in most cases I am able to help them achieve some improvement. Herbal medicine is a special passion. I offer herbal alternatives to drugs (in cooperation with your other medical providers).



I studied multiple massage techniques specializing in Tui Na; Chinese Medical Massage as a stepping stone into Traditional Oriental Medicine. After being licensed in 1996 in California and working in private practice I moved back to Whitefish Montana in 2004 to assist elderly and handicapped family members. Currently my greatest interest lies in helping a person through their beliefs and consciousness to transform identification with disease into identification with health, joyfulness, and playfulness. I am grateful to be a part of the wonderful team at Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic.
