I am a CT-Licensed Naturopathic Physician with a Masters in Acupuncture, and also practice Reiki and Craniosacral therapy.
I have a passion for evidence-based science as well as the 'metaphysical,' and use both spheres of healing for myself and my clients.
To protect both you and myself, please read through the following legal jargon before reaching out:
