About Julie

I felt called to become an acupuncturist and craniosacral therapist through my experience of receiving them as a client. Both modalities invite the body’s own inner wisdom or qi to create true, lasting health and healing. It is a joy and privilege to help others to feel better.

My study of craniosacral therapy began in 2017 and is continuing. I received a Master’s degree in Acupuncture from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture in Colorado in May of 2015 and opened my private practice in September of that year. I have worked as a nurse-midwife in the Pioneer Valley since 1998 and earned my Master’s in Nurse-Midwifery and in Public Health from Columbia University in 1997.

I studied modern dance at SUNY-Purchase in the late 1980s and performed in New York City prior to becoming a midwife.  I have been studying and practicing various forms of hatha yoga since 1991.

Providing acupuncture and craniosacral therapy connects the scientist, artist, and healer within me. The care I provide draws on all of my life and professional experience.
