I took a risk when I decided to switch my career from a traditional Path in medicine to an Alternative/Holistic Path.It is interesting how the journey unfolds in a mysterious way. I was introduced to Alternative and Complementary Medicine during my internship at the National Institutes of Health. After that, I did a year of Med School realizing I didn't fit in. I am grateful that it opened up my pathway to holistic medicine. I practice Acupuncture in NY/CT and have a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. I facilitate and hold space for my patient's healing narratives, as stories have sacred power. I find myself creating a bridge or channel between ancient holistic and modern integrative medicine. I am currently pursuing Professional Certification in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University.
