Her mission is to provide you the support and tools you need to activate your personal healing blueprint and thrive abundantly in mind, body, and spirit. 
Dr. Cat utilizes the healing powers of natural medicine to reconnect her clients with their innate health as sovereign beings.   

Witnessing her sister suffer in the hands of Western medicine without the support of natural healing modalities, Dr. Cat was drawn to embark on a deeper path into holistic and natural medicines so that she could better support others in their healing. 
She began her journey with alternative medicine in 2013 when she pursued an education in massage therapy at the Hawaii School of Professional Massage. From there, she began her studies in Chinese medicine at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver. She went on to complete both her Masters and her Doctorate in Chinese Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. 

Over the years, Dr. Cat has witnessed the power of natural healing within herself and her clients.
She firmly believes in the innate healing power of the human body and affirms that anyone’s health can be reclaimed through intentional and dedicated care. She takes a holistic approach with every client to address their root cause of dis-ease and curates individualized treatment plans so every one can reach their highest health potential.
In her free time, Dr. Cat enjoys hiking, gardening, baking, crocheting and spending quality time with her loved ones.
