She + Her + Ella
I'm an acupuncturist and herbalist who loves working with folks to achieve their wellness goals. I particularly love treating clients experiencing digestive issues, acute and chronic pain, pregnancy, autoimmune disease, menstrual issues, and fertility concerns.
I fell in love with holistic medicine while in college after being disappointed by certain aspects of the conventional medical system. Being a bigger bodied person, I believe there are limited medical and wellness spaces that feel comfortable for larger folks, and I strive to create a space where every body is welcome. As a Colombian-American, I also aim to provide more access to holistic wellness modalities to the Latine community and offer services in Spanish as well as English.
When I'm not seeing patients, I love to play videogames, experiment in the kitchen, watch K-dramas, and spoil my two kitties.
