About Kathryn

Kathryn first became interested in Chinese Medicine after experiencing both the subtle and profound effects it had on her own health and the health of her two daughters. She was inspired to leave her career as a builder of custom furniture and pursue her education in Chinese Medicine.  Kathryn weaves the skills and intelligence of her hands developed in her former craft into her knowledge of the body, creating a sensitive and informed medical practice.

Kathryn received her master’s degree from Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine. Her education includes training and clinical mentorship in many diverse approaches to the practice of Chinese Medicine.  This enables her to select the treatment approach best suited for each individual patient.
