Helen is passionate about Chinese Medicine and appreciates the opportunity to share this path to health and wellness with others. She is a graduate of the Masters program at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, and a licensed Acupuncturist in the State of OR.
Prior to this, Helen earned a Masters in Chemistry at Manchester University in the UK and worked in corporate London for several years before trading comfort and security for a one-way ticket to Bangkok and the quest for more balance and meaning in life.
Travelling solo around Asia, she immersed herself in eastern culture and became intrigued with their approach to life, health and disease. The journey ultimately led her to Portland and NCNM where she was classically trained in the art and science of Chinese Medicine.
Her clinical experience and interests lend her to support those that are struggling with emotional issues as well as the physical symptoms that accompany them. Her ability to listen and observe with respect, curiosity and without judgment combined with the power of Chinese Medicine to simultaneously treat the body, mind and spirit, facilitates deep and lasting transformation in her clients.
Her other passions are her two children, and cooking to feed the physical health and soul of the family. Food as medicine is a foundation of Helen’s treatment principles. She is expertly trained in the prescription of Chinese herbs and values herbs, diet and also Qigong, as steps that clients can take home to enhance their wellbeing.
