Liz began her journey with Chinese medicine after witnessing many loved ones battle cancer in the early 2000’s. She saw firsthand the toll that Chemotherapy and Radiation had on their bodies and sought alternatives to ease their pain and discomfort.
In 2008, inspired to provide new perspectives on health, Liz left her job as a Photographer to embrace her love of care-taking and natural medicine. She moved to Portland, Oregon to study Chinese Medicine.
Graduating with honors from the National University of Natural Medicine, Liz received a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. In addition to Acupuncture and herbs, she focused on dietary therapy and cranial-sacral therapy. Liz specializes in mood disorders, digestive disorders, women’s health, and chronic pain.
As a former competitive gymnast and dancer Liz is instilled with an appreciation for the human body and movement. Combining this appreciation with her passion for addressing emotional and spiritual needs, she uses a delicate system of pulse diagnosis, palpation, medical history, and symptom diagnosis to create an inclusive treatment plan. Beyond treatment, Liz encourages her patients to take charge of their own health and happiness.
When she is not treating patients, Liz enjoys camping with her husband and two kids in their Westfalia, experimenting in the kitchen, dancing, and exploring the Oregon forests.
