I help people feel better in their bodies, which I absolutely love! I practice upper cervical chiropractic (UCC) care, which is different from traditional chiropractic in several ways.
First, it’s a minimalist approach. Only the top two bones in the neck are adjusted, and corrections are more accurate and less frequent. Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal and adapt when the upper neck bones are aligned because they protect the brain stem. When those top bones in the neck are out of alignment, they can interfere with the nervous system and cause pain, stiffness, headaches, sleep problems and many other health concerns affecting the entire body.
UCC focuses on locating brain stem interference within those top bones in the neck and making a tiny correction to “unblock” that interference. It’s really just a nudge in the right direction that lets the healing process being – no popping, twisting, cracking involved! With no interference, the rest of the spine can reset on its own, and the whole body can heal. UCC is very effective, but it doesn’t involve continuous adjustments over a long period of time. Many patients see dramatic results in about six months of care, as their bodies are able to adjust and adapt on their own.
The other notable difference is that UCC uses nervous system testing — a scientific scanning method that shows me when the body is adapting (or healing itself) and when it’s truly stuck. At each visit, I can see a patient’s neurological patterns in real time.
When we continue to see these same patterns over and over, the body has lost the ability to adapt. I can then make a tiny, specific correction, and do another scan to make sure that a change was made. When a patient comes in for a check and doesn’t need an adjustment, that’s because the body is actually healing.
This approach is scientific and holistic, and it gets lasting results that hold, by allowing the body to do its job. I love my patients, but my goal is to see them a lot less over time.
I help people get better results with fewer adjustments overall. My patients love that they can trust me to be their person. I truly care about their experience and treat them like family.

I start with a phone conversation to learn about their needs and determine if we are a good fit. I then need to complete an initial evaluation to determine if they qualify for care and only offer a care plan if I believe I can help them achieve their desired health goals.
From 3 days old to 85 years old. My specialty is working with women 40-60 because of their lifestyles, but I have helped everyone in between.
90% of us have some type of malformations in the upper neck. If you're going to get an adjustment by any practitioner, please make sure they are taking x-rays. To x-ray is to see, to see is to know, to know is not to guess! Please don't guess with your health.
