Casey’s interest in acupuncture and East Asian medicine began as a teenager after struggles with knee pain and asthma caused her to seek help outside the sphere of conventional care. The rest is history. Casey believes that humans are like intricate mosaics, made up of millions of tiny pieces. Some of these pieces are beautiful, some ugly, but all uniquely us. She strives to respect and value all of these pieces when designing treatment plans, ensuring patients leave feeling empowered about their health—because we ALL deserve to feel good. She enjoys a collaborative, team approach to patient care and wants to make sure that everyone is working towards a common goal.
Casey is a graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, is certified through the NCCAOM, and licensed with the Oregon Medical Board. She has completed advanced training in orthopedic acupuncture, Japanese-style acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medicine. After completing her master’s degree, Casey served as an acupuncturist in an integrative primary care clinic in rural Nepal. She also spent time studying in a holistic oncology hospital in Shanghai, China where doctors combined standard Western therapies with traditional Chinese herbal medicine. During treatments, she generally likes to combine multiple therapies to improve outcomes. These may include: acupuncture, electroacupuncture, herbal medicine, tuina massage, shiatsu, cupping, guasha, moxibustion, and TCM dietary therapy.
When she’s not seeing patients, you can find Casey: running, cruising around Portland on two wheels, recreating in the great outdoors, thrifting, crafting the perfect playlist, and trying to keep her plants alive.
Casey is currently contracted with the following health insurances:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield (coming soon)
- Providence (coming soon)
