I received my Master's degree in Acupuncture from the Tai Sophia Institute (now the Maryland University of Integrative Health) in the United States, a program focused on classical five-element acupuncture. This tradition aims at determining the root cause of one's constitutional imbalance. I find that this treatment method can have a profoundly transformative effect not only on the body, but also on the mind and soul. I am amazed at the effect treatments have on clients' emotional well-being, even if it is not their primary complaint.

 

In addition to my Five-Element training, I have also studied the AcuOsteo method, ayurveda, Facial Rejuvenation, herbs and supplements, TuiNa, and yoga therapy. I love learning about new modalities I can incorporate into my treatments.
 
Over the years I have helped many patients with a wide range of problems, including: (in)fertility, obstetric/gynecological problems, burnout and recovery from post-traumatic stress. I like to use an integrative approach, incorporating different styles of acupuncture, naturopathy and bodywork, to help my patients feel their best.
 
In addition to my practice, I am also National Coordinator for Acupuncturists Without Borders in the Netherlands and I am on the Executive Committee of the European Traditional Chinese Medicine Association (ETCMA), managing special projects. My goal is to increase awareness and acceptance of acupuncture and natural medicine in modern healthcare.
 
Languages: I am bilingual in English and Spanish and speak at a lower level in Portuguese. Dutch speaking patients: please note that although I understand Dutch very well, I speak it on a more basic level. Over the years there have been numerous cases where my patient and I did not speak or understand each other's language, but due to the nature of the classic 5 element diagnosis, this has NEVER been a barrier to providing effective treatment.
