A native of New York City, I am well used to working with and dealing with people from many different nationalities and cultures. I have a passion for helping others, and I have dedicated the last 15 years of my life to learning about and combining two great skills of mind and body – Acupuncture and NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming. These skills enable me to really make a difference in people’s lives.  If you want me to help you while facilitating change in the things you want, then please be sure to contact me, now.

Licensing: Acupuncture

I developed my skills and use of acupuncture in three countries in the course of five years.

  • United States: The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (P.C.O.M.) in New York City where I received a scholarship for demonstrating a passion in the study of Oriental Medicine.
  • Australia: The University of Western Sydney where I received my Degree in Applied Science and Traditional Chinese Medicine & The Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • China: The Jiangsu Province Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the affiliated hospital of Nanjing University for Traditional Chinese Medicine where I trained rigorously in a hospital setting using acupuncture, herbal medicine remedies and Tui Na applications.

Certification: NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner, NLP Coaching Trainer and NLP Trainer

I first experienced NLP when I decided to train to become a professional golfer, and trained with a golfing coach called Chuck Hogan.  In a matter of 5 short days, he used NLP techniques to bring my average down from 125 to 88. I was really impressed by this incredibly effective approach to mind and body, and went on to become a professional golf player.

After I had completed my training in acupuncture, I went on to train as an NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner.  I am also a qualified NLP Trainer and NLP Coaching Trainer with the Society for Neuro-Linguistic Programming by Richard Bandler, Co-creater of NLP.

Neuro-Linguistic Acupuncture

Over the years, I have learned to combine my skills in NLP and Acupuncture, to create a highly effective approach to mind and body which I have called Neuro-Linguistic Acupuncture, or NLA. This combines the body work and meridian work of Acupuncture with the powerful mind techniques of NLP to create a powerful tool that promotes wellbeing and better health.
