Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist
After graduating from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2010, Patty started her first practice in Bend, OR. Like many others, she entered the acupuncture field of medicine after experiencing exceptional relief through natural dietary therapy, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs for health concerns that were not responding well to other forms of treatment.
She’s taken the road less traveled, both in life as well as within this profession. It often hasn’t been easy, but it has always ended up transforming her and her practice in ways that she could not have imagine. Upon graduating, she traveled to Chine to complete an acupuncture and herbal internship at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. In addition to the academics of this internship, international travel experiences have always been at the heart of her pursuit of health – both personal and collective. In 2013 and 2014, Patty had the opportunity to volunteer with the Acupuncture Relief Project in rural Bhimphedi, Nepal. Most recently, during the summer of 2022, she spent time observing and experiencing how western and central European countries structure their societies in ways that engender personal and societal health and well-being.
Patty has practiced acupuncture in both Bend and Portland, and worked within the health insurance industry. She has woven together her experiences, studies, observations, and lessons learned. It is from this collection of life, travel, and educational experiences that she draws when working with patients. She strives to understand what is at the root of dis-ease and will do her best to help each patient realize their own unique healing potential in an effort to find greater balance, peace, and well-being. She is happy to be a part of Be Well Holistic Health and to serve within what she hopes will grow into a foundation for a national healthcare system in the United States.
Patty is available to see CareOregon and PacificSource patients only at a secondary Be Well location, located at 4445 NE Fremont St. Portland, OR 97213.
