As a Chinese medicine practitioner with a strong background in Western medicine, Jillian believes that the best treatment combines both approaches. She loves to work with patients that are trying to avoid pharmaceuticals and surgery, and with patients who believe that preventative medicine is the key to maintaining a healthy, balanced life.
Jillian is a licensed acupuncturist and herbologist and a nationally-recognized Diplomate of Oriental Medicine.
She holds a Master's of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University and a Bachelor's of Arts in Environmental Biology from Colgate University. She has completed internships at both the Chengdu University of TCM and the Shanghai University of TCM in China. Jillian is passionate about Chinese medicine because of its holistic nature and the way that it helps our bodies restore our natural, healthy balance.
In her free time, Jillian is an avid outdoors enthusiast. Whether it's biking, skiing, climbing, or hiking, she spends as much time as possible outside, helping her maintain her own personal balance in her life.
While acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be effective for a variety of conditions, Jillian's specialties include:
Because Chinese medicine focuses on the whole body, not just one particular symptom, there are a variety of other conditions that can benefit from it.

Jillian has restored a human connection that was missing. She is so patient and really listen to you as you speak about your body and condition. I have been suffering with sciatica and has helped me to heal 85% back to normal. I plan to have her as a permanent fixture in my quest for a healthy, balanced life.
Jillian has a very warm bedside manner, while at the same time treating with professionalism and thoughtfulness that make me feel 100% confident in her knowledge and ability. I have had all positive experiences. With a significant back injury, Jillian worked with me over a series of sessions to reduce the pain and build up my back's resilience.
As a first-timer with acupuncture, I wasn't sure what to expect. I decided to try it to sleep better and get rid of some pain in a hip and foot. Even though I came at the end of my workday, I did not feel hurried or rushed, like I have with other healthcare providers. Jillian took time to truly listen to me.
