Interacting as a professional I have been impressed by Francie's open mind and willingness to acquire additional knowledge and skill. Top quality professionals understand that collaboration and communication are essential to a success. Francie recognizes this, but also understands the critical importance of listening and integrating what she hears into her recommendations and practice.
I was introduced to Francie by a local Rolfer a few years ago. I have had the opportunity to interact with her as an acupuncture patient as well as a colleague in the wellness field. As a first time and ongoing acupuncture patient I have been very pleased and surprised. The benefits during recovery from a back injury and as an aid for ongoing sinus problems has been top quality.

As a practitioner of non-traditional Holistic treatment, Francie has helped me over the years with spikes of elevated stress, emotional anxiety, and prolonged grief from the sudden loss of my husband. Francie has the ability to see my issue clearly and quickly, tell it to me straight, and is then supportive while I train myself with the new behaviors she recommends. Francie's world view is also different than most others. She has a knack for seeing sides of large issues that haven't been noted before, which I think speaks to her all-encompassing view of life and our place in it. It is that quality - along with her sense of humor - in Francie that makes her uniquely qualified to be my "Coach".
I have been Francie's friend (and occasional client) for over 15 years. I am always impressed with her scope of knowledge in a variety of areas and specialties. As an acupuncturist, Francie has helped me with motion sickness, chronic sinus issues, occasional insomnia, the random stomach flu, and various muscle soreness as I age.
Sometimes, in the process of transforming lemons to lemonade, life gives you a bonus. My life lemons are some chronic illnesses, and Francie has become my bonus. Her instincts about treating the human body are spot-on, and they are things that can’t be taught. She has a bit of the Earth Mother about her, so just being in her presence is calming. She is sensitive and caring, but more importantly, she is very good at what she does. I am lucky to have found her in my search for better health.
