About Me

Photo of MichaelI hold a master’s degree in acupuncture from Tai Sophia, home to the first accredited acupuncture program in the United States. My approach with patients can be summed up in the words of Dr. William Osler, “It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.” I focus on treating the whole person, taking into account how one shows up in every aspect of one’s life. I aim to compassionately guide my patients toward awareness of habits and lifestyle choices that are practiced unconsciously, starting them on a path to living more healthy, pain-free lives.

Before pursuing a degree in acupuncture, I spent more than a decade working as an aide to a United States Senator. I first encountered acupuncture when a sports injury led me to a surgeon who recommended I try it.
