Trauma Informed Acupuncture
Over the past 20 years, I have witnessed the effects of un-metabolized trauma in the bodies and spirits of my patients. I notice how it shows up for people in guardedness in their body, edginess in their nervous system, and reactivity in their relationships.....

WHY WORK WITH ME?
I feel so very grateful that I have been able to pursue the work I have, for as long as I have, and that I have gotten to go where my curiosity leads me. I have spent the past 20 years as an acupuncturist gathering a pretty big tool bag, and do my best to choose and apply the right combination of tools for you on any given day. Your treatments might include working with acupuncture, gentle hands-on work, body-based meditation practices, cupping, guasha, moxabustion, E-stim, essential oils, flower essences, dreamwork, etc.
I am uniquely suited, because of my background and training, to work with orthopedic issues; repetitive strain issues, acute and chronic injuries, and post-surgical support, and I have done that, happily, for the last 20 years. But I also love opening up the conversation and building a relationship with you, over time, in aims of supporting your more intrinsic, embodied self to emerge. My goal is always to support you in becoming more authentically……..you.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Kate for almost 15 years. She is the practitioner I send my own patients to when they need a caring and highly skilled acupuncturist. She is one of the more intuitive and grounded practitioners I have ever had the honor of both sharing clients with and being a client myself. She shows true empathy and also an empowering spirit to urge you forward on your healing path"
