Thank you for your interest.  A little about me: I have been in the healthcare profession for almost 30 years, and I have been practicing Asian Medicine for 20 years.  Here is my brief story:

An artistic child, my humanitarian interests were awakened by being made aware of suffering people in poor countries.  So I left the arts and studied nursing with the intention of helping out populations in developing countries. Not surprisingly, I discovered I did not have far from home to go to find those in need.  Yet I also found shortcomings in the scientific method upon which western medicine is grounded.  I yearned for an approach that was different.  My search for alternatives brought me to Asian Medicine, one of the oldest systems still in great use on the planet.  Here was a healing paradigm  inherently natural, quality-oriented, holistic, and uniquely individualistic.  I embraced this tradition that was intrinsically compassionate; an approach that could utilize my naturally creative and intuitive tendencies.  I established Lotus Center in 1999.

In 2018 my own life and health took a new direction.  I found myself more and more interested in the subtle world as mirrored by the subtle energy we all have.  To reflect this, I offer a treatment style largely based upon unique, individual, and ever dynamic pulse guided treatment.  Please explore this website to find out more.

I have holistically treated many patients successfully for a variety of concerns. More than that, I treat you, not just your disease. I am committed to being a true healer.

Lotus Center houses a pharmacy of over 500 single herbs and over 200 prepared pills and tinctures.
