My Philosophy of Care

Body Positive Acupuncture empowers patients to foster a positive relationship with their bodies and food. This is achieved primarily through acupuncture treatment and enhanced by Intuitive Eating classes and one-on-one Intuitive Eating Counseling. A body positive lens aims to heal the wounds that may have come from diet culture, weight discrimination/stigma, ageism, heterosexism, racism, classism, gender bias, a consumerist-driven society, personal and/or medical trauma, and various other factors. The intention is for patients of Body Positive Acupuncture to know that there is an exit ramp from diet culture, that it is possible to unlearn damaging misinformation about our bodies, and to trust in the body’s ability to communicate its needs. The result is that patients will understand that their intuition is their primary care provider—they are born with it—and they can cultivate the ability to listen to and follow their intuition.

About Me & My Practice

I practice acupuncture four days a week, through a HAES® lens. I have done so for 13 years. I become a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor in 2022. I dedicate 1 work day exclusively to this work. I run Virtual workshops, as well as virtual one-on-one sessions for Intuitive Eating.

In 2010 I completed a master’s degree program in Acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MIUH), then called Tai Sophia Institute. My acupuncture training emphasized the fostering of intuition on every level, except when it came to food. As both the practitioner and the patient, there were more rules and guidelines around how we feed our bodies than anything else. I kept working at the Intuitive Eating approach personally and kept finding a disconnect between what my patients were talking about in the treatment room, and how they had been taught to nourish their bodies. It became increasingly difficult to reconcile the two.

I sought professional help from an intuitive eating counselor for myself and cleaned up some loose ends from doing the work on my own. I was inspired to start the program to become an Intuitive Eating Counselor. I want to bring Intuitive Eating as an important component of Body Positivity to the acupuncture/wellness industry. In 2015 I started to find a community with podcasts and felt the support of strangers saying, “I’ve been there. I get it. It is a life that lacks joy.” If you see yourself reflected in my story, know that I am here to partner you.
