About Tina

Updated: Jun 15, 2019

I am excited to share all the knowledge that I have to offer. I am a licensed acupuncturist and a registered herbalist and have a lot of wisdom pertaining to health. I had a very unique training that sets me apart from many acupuncturists. I have been a traditional herbalist for the past twenty plus years. I was trained in Western herbal medicine, essential oils and flower essences and I learned how to make my own medicine using the plants that grow around us. There was a traditional, as well as a psycho-spiritual component to my training that made it a true mind, body and spirit approach to learning.

I am a nationally certified Licensed Acupuncturist (NCCAOM) and a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild (AHG), which is a nationally recognized professional organization. I am focused on bringing awareness to healing health concerns through shifting our emotional state.

A large focus of mine is on emotional healing. I have personally gone through many traumatic experiences in my life that gives me a perspective to share beyond what can be taught from a book. I have worked on the psychology of my past. I understood my childhood dysfunction and trauma. I learned about and knew the theory of how our unprocessed pain can get stuck in our emotional bodies.


I was blindsided by how my abandonment issues were triggered by a significant loss. It affected my health so severely that I almost died. I thought, “What is happening? I thought I worked this all out.”

This is when I realized that I was experiencing what I knew in theory of how our trauma and emotions can get stuck in our emotional bodies.

Changing our thoughts are very important, but we cannot positively think our way out of our pain with words alone. It helps, but it will not stick if the other work is not done.

Attention needs to go to clearing the traumatic experiences out of all levels of our being. Our emotions need to be processed and cleared out of our emotional fields to completion.

My entire experience has fascinated me. I have gone deep within to find the answers. I have removed the feeling of victimhood, which is the most important piece of true healing. We have to truly believe that people and events are not happening to us, but for us, for our highest wisdom and evolution.

This is where the healing becomes crucial—the truest healing on all levels. Medication does not work here. We humans, have the ability to heal ourselves from any health or life adversity. It is fascinating that large diagnoses and serious life adversities will “miraculously” clear up for some people. These were not miracles. This was the person, surrendering and connecting with something higher, not feeling as a victim and coming into balance with it all.

I knew that I figured something out when I didn’t let my emotions get in the way of a very serious life adversity that I was going through. I wasn’t okay with it to the point of accepting it and not doing anything about it—I accepted that this was a process that I was experiencing and it was in sacrifice to get my work out into the world. I did not feel like a victim, as if I was not loved enough and someone or something was doing this to me. I was not interested in reaching out to others for help.

I just knew that I needed to do what I was doing—for me—and for the goodness of all. I felt supported by the Universe, beyond comprehension and I am so grateful. I am grateful for my knowledge, awareness and the opportunity to do what I feel so passionately about. Through the very challenging experience, I actually felt happy and filled with abundance.

I was aligned with my purpose and nothing was going to stop me.

This work that I am offering about how our emotions impact our health is my passion and purpose in life. I want to help every person that struggles with their past trauma that keeps them so stuck in adversity. There is light at the end of the darkness of it all and the amount of light that someone will embody will equal the amount of darkness that they experienced.

So read on and do the deep work. Instead of saying something isn’t working out for complete healing, share with me the details, so we can figure it out together. There is no “quick fix” to true healing and everyone is so different in the way that they need to heal. It is a process and I am looking forward to helping as many people as I possibly can to find their light that they are meant to be in this world. We need all the light that we can get.

So let’s get to work and shine out the darkness together.
