Being a teenager can be a challenging.  We want to make sure our kids get all the support they need to succeed and thrive in these formative years.  Acupuncture is a natural way to address many of the issues teens are dealing with today. If your teen is a little hesitant of needles, we have needle-free options that are effective and they will love.


  • Increase focus, concentration and memory for studying and test taking
  • Reduce test taking anxiety
  • Reduce overwhelm-ment, gives them a feeling of being able to handle whatever comes their way
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Feel deeply relaxed and happy; balanced moods
  • Eliminate pain from after school sports injuries
  • Help them heal faster from injuries so they can continue to play strong
  • Strengthen the immune system to prevent days missed from school
  • Decrease stress


I’ve also noticed that teenagers tend to heal more quickly than adults, so if your teen has an ongoing health issue, acupuncture may be a way to keep them off medication and help them heal faster naturally.


  • Anxiety
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Allergies
  • Digestive Issues
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Balance Hormones

I offer a program called Stepping Into the Unknown: Preparing Your Teen for Life after High School and Beyond

Are you concerned about how your teen will do once they’ve gone off to college?

Are you worried they will make choices not in their best interest?

Are you concerned about how they will manage it all?


In our workshop your teen will:


  • feel grounded, stable, like they can handle life
  • have increased confidence in themselves and a better understanding of who they are as individuals
  • learn relaxation techniques that will immediately help them feel calm and clear
  • learn how to best nourish themselves with food, supplements and self-care
  • learn how to manage stressful situations and develop tool that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives
  • they will have time to relax and feel peaceful
  • they will have a support system that they can reach out to when needed
  • they will learn to listen to their gut to make choices that are healthy
  • they will learn how to manage their thoughts and feelings so they are in control of how they react to situations
  • gain an overall sense of empowerment
  • have ongoing support with the transition to college


The Program consists of 3 one-on-one customized sessions where I will get to know and understand your teens specific needs and provide healing sessions to balance their mind and body. There will also be 3 group workshops where they will learn specific techniques and life skills along with their peers. If your teen prefers privacy, this training can be offered one on one.
