Welcome to Back in Balance Acupuncture

and Psychotherapy Center




My mission is to help people experience lifelong wellness by treating the underlying cause of illness through acupuncture.  With psychotherapy I can facilitate empowering people towards healthier coping and relationships.  By providing clear communication, education, and holistic practices I hope to engage everyone who walks through my door to make informed choices which benefits their health in the long run.  My practice will be a safe and compassionate environment without judgment where each individual’s needs and concerns will be heard and addressed.







Do you need help with: 


Smoking cessation? 

Support for your weight loss goals? 


Getting sober or maintaining sobriety from substances?


Controlling an eating disorder such as binge eating or bulimia?


Do you suffer from a sports injury, muscle pain, tightness or aches?


Are hot flashes taking over your life?


Is stress, anxiety or depression causing a problem in your job or relationships?


Would you like a  holistic or alternative approach to treating health issues without prescription medication? 


Are the prescription medications you are taking not completely alleviating your symptoms or causing side effects?


Would you like help with becoming healthier and feeling more relaxed?



Back in Balance Acupuncture and Psychotherapy Center can help with these issues and many more utilizing the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with essential oils, natural supplementation and/or psychotherapy. 


Back in Balance Acupuncture and Psychotherapy Center can help strengthen and return balance to your body so it is better able to heal itself. 


Balanced Life=Happy Life.





I am dedicated to helping you be as active as you wish and live a pain-free life, whether the pain is emotional or physical.  Whether you suffer from an acute or chronic condition or injury, I can work with you to lessen pain and speed healing.


I can work with you to bring your life back into balance through psychotherapy and/or acupuncture. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy you can learn to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors which leads to the vicious cycle of negative emotions or dysfunctional relationships. Acupuncture can help alleviate stress, improve mood, sleep and physical ailments without medications or work as an adjunctive treatment to your prescribed medications. 


Think of it as your opportunity to form a partnership for better health.  The more you take part in your healing process, the more successful it will be

acupuncture treatment

I have found Laurie to be helpful with getting my health back on track.  I like that she has the experience with both mental health and acupuncture and combines the two skills well to help me improve my overall well being.  I would rather have natural alternatives to getting well than prescription medication and she is able to provide me with options so I have choices and can decide for myself what works best for me.  I never had acupuncture before and was somewhat skeptical, but after trying it the first time I was hooked!  It has helped me to feel less anxious, to sleep better, and I feel better able to handle what life throws my way.  In addition, through therapy I am working on changing my thought process so that my outlook and decision making is better which helps my emotions.  It takes time, but I'm on my way!
