About Us

Refuge Marin is a resting place.  We believe that administering good medicine requires time, attunement, and safe space. This is a sanctuary to open, receive, and heal layer by layer. We use Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine Tools, and Energy Healing for individual healing, and we provide ongoing group events to connect authentically with others in our Marin community. Our specialties include...


Women's Health, Hormone Balancing, Fertility, & Sexuality

Migraines, insomnia, PCOS, autoimmunity, infertility, hormonal fluctuations, digestive disturbances, TMJ, and chronic ailments respond well to our Chinese Medicine and Holistic protocols, and are an opportunity to restore your connection to yourself. Learn to patiently tune into physical aches and pains as messengers guiding you toward healthy change.


Experience freedom from the incessant need to fix and improve the body.


Mental Emotional Health & Cultivating Self-Awareness


Emotions are HEALTHY, except when any one is experienced in excess. Develop a better understanding of your emotional guidance system and shift into a confident woman who feels clear and compassionate towards self and others.


Receive the healing inside of dark nights of the soul, depression, anxiety, and/or heartbreak. Allow the heart to open and the rigid structures to soften so a new YOU can emerge.


Co-Creating a Divine Life

Aligned with Purpose


Wondering where your creative spark has gone? Let's remove the barriers blocking your JOY and creative expression!  Say YES to your own energy and surrender to the fertile flow of life.


Ride the waves of emerging consciousness and let go of fear and control.
