About Kat 

My goal is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness. Through working with my patients, I have seen the profound results that Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can have.

I am a nationally board certified (NCCAOM) and registered Acupuncturist in Michigan, as well as a member of the Michigan Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAAOM). In addition to receiving a Master's of Science of Acupuncture from one of the world’s leading centers for natural medicine, Bastyr University, I earned a Master's of Science of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Bachelor's of Science in Nutrition from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago. My first introduction with Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine was while working as an HIV Case Manager in Chicago 15 + years ago. I was able to directly witness the transformative impact that it had on my clients’ quality of life, health and emotional well-being. 

Through my own personal history with anxiety, I have a perspective that encompasses both experiential knowledge and compassion. When anxiety, insomnia and vertigo began to affect all aspects of my daily life, I decided to give acupuncture a try. With consistent weekly treatments, I ceased having panic attacks, my anxiety decreased, sleep quality improved and I was able to manage stress more effectively. Learning that my symptoms were inter-related and that I could be proactive in my treatment plan, my Acupuncturist gave me tools and resources to be utilized outside of the treatment room. As a result, I was inspired to learn more about Chinese medicine and ultimately based my career path on helping patients experience their own freedom from physical & emotional imbalances!

In 2012, I completed a 2 year post-graduate, clinical mentorship in Stockbridge, MA based in the Five Element tradition of Chinese medicine with Lonny Jarrett, L.Ac., author of Nourishing Destiny: The Inner Tradition of Chinese Medicine. Jarrett's teachings combines the richness and complexity of the ancient traditions with a truly progressive perspective to create the highest context for healing for patients.

My clinical experience and mental health background led me to specialize in the treatment of trauma, PTSD, attention disorders, anxiety, depression and sleep disorders. In addition I have specialized, post-graduate training in pain management, infertility and women’s reproductive health, pediatrics and digestive disorders. Treatment focuses on individualized, patient care that values and supports a holistic, integrated approach in treating the body, mind and spirit.
