You're tired. You're spinning your wheels running to another inconclusive test or googling another med. You're being referred from one specialist to another where you're seen as "parts" instead of a whole person. So much is getting missed or ignored.

You don't want your life to be constantly bouncing between doctors appointments, fielding contradictory advice, and hoping you'll get off another waitlist.

You want things to shift, to find more clarity and relief. You just know (or hope) that there's a better way to heal.

The System Isn't Serving You, Because It's Not Built For You

Whether it's you and your health or you're trying to find relief for your child or teen, the western medical system isn't meeting your needs.

Maybe you don't know what it's called yet, but you DO know you want to work with someone who is going to:

  • listen to you, deeply
  • understand your identity and values
  • see you as a whole person, not a collection of parts
  • help you find relief in the short-term and healing in the long-term
  • take a holistic approach and honor your choices around taking or not taking meds
  • be totally non-judgmental

You'll know them when you find them. It just hasn't happened quite yet.

Finding Yourself Again With Holistic, Gender-affirming Care

I’m Rebecca (they/she) and I’m a Queer licensed acupuncturist and an herbalist. I help LGBTQ+ parents, kids, and families with mental health challenges and physical pain to find refuge and healing in their own body. I can help you to feel So.Much.Better while finally understanding how your mental and physical symptoms are very much connected. This means you get to use your precious energy to live your beautiful life, not just manage your symptoms.

Using my extensive, graduate-level training in East Asian Medicine and evidence-based practices, I co-facilitate (with you!) a healing process that reveals layers of ease and groundedness that you embody with initial disbelief, and then just become your new baseline.

Together, we get really precise about what’s happening in your mind and body and then you speak out-loud your deepest intention, “How would you like to feel?” Our care plan, which covers herbs, acu-phototherapy, HAES food and movement recommendations, and more, is designed toward your very personal and vulnerable desires for change.

Working together is an opportunity to unlearn perfectionism, the ways in which capitalism makes us feel not enough, and opens up possibilities for a different way forward – all while feeling supported, calm, and clear.

The Power of Gender-Affirming Care

My clients describe feeling a sense of power in relation to their own healing, an understanding of what they want out of the western medical system, and relief from symptoms so long standing that they didn’t know just how much they were enduring every day. Whether you're looking for holistic fertility care, holistic pregnancy carepostpartum support, or herbal medicine for any stage of life, you're home.

If a super Queer, collaborative healing process sounds right. If finding your ground again through laughter and depth, is where you're at. If a trauma-informed, non-judgmental space sounds like what you’re needing, book a free Curiosity Call. Let's talk and discover a new way forward.

How It Works

Finding the right fit for you

In the Curiosity Call, you’ll share what you or your child is going through. You’ll come away with a clear next step -- either working with me or in being referred to someone who is a better fit. I only accept clients who I can help.

Getting a care plan for relief and healing

Your intake appointment kicks-off a process to find relief from what's going on and marks the beginning of healing the root cause(s) of what you're struggling with.

Living your deepest intentions

We meet weekly (except herbs-only clients who meet monthly) until you meet your goals and intentions. Once you're in that place, we'll meet monthly to do what some call "preventive care" and we call "showing-up for your healing".

Today my 7 year old asked me, "Did you just put an acupuncture patch on me? Cause I feel so calm." Rebecca has introduced Chinese Medicine to my kiddo in such a gentle and supportive way. It has helped M in her work of connecting her emotions to her body sensations and naming the type of support she needs.

- C, Queer (adjacent) parent

Though I only worked with Rebecca for a short time--in treatment for myself and my young teenager--I can say with confidence that she brings great skill and compassion to her practice. My teenager is non-binary trans and felt very safe with Rebecca, as Rebecca is extremely adept with working with gender-diverse patients. Rebecca has tremendous respect for her patients and for the tools of her trade: herbs, etc., with which she creates a kind of team of allies, helping her patients on their path to greater health.

- Jenny Jaeckel, Victoria BC

I can’t begin to explain the relief I felt from the first time we met. Literally like a cold cloud had been lifted from my heart, and that warm energy was blanketing me instead. I would highly recommend working with Rebecca for anyone else struggling with mental illness. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me Rebecca, your positive impact on me is immeasurable.

I live and work on Abenkai Territories. I am not native to this land. My ability to build my life and practice on this land, is due to systemic stealing of Abenaki land by state, local, and national governments. This has caused an erasure of Abenaki sovereignty, cultural healing practices, and land access. The enormity of this harm is real and as I work to be an accomplice to the Abenaki Nation and their land, I take care in my harvesting of local medicinal plants and offer limited number of reparation rate spots for BIPOC (including Abenaki People). It's not the end, but perhaps the middle of a lifelong process of living with deep regard for these beautiful lands and their stewards.
