All of our practitioners are licensed and board certified in Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine, have years of direct training with Hillary, and much additional specialized education and experience. Practitioners and support staff alike have a deep and abiding care for people and passion for the process of healing. We look forward to supporting your journey!
There is a saying in Chinese medicine, “Know the form. Forget the form.” The past 25 years has been a journey of ever-deepening understanding of the process of healing – how and why we heal… or at times struggle with this process. For me, supporting others in reclaiming health involves knowing the body in it’s miraculous minutia and wonderous multi-systems complexity, while at the same time leading each unique healing journey with spirit and intuition. I am humbled by the human will not only to survive, but to thrive, which I witness in my patients every day. Together, with the forces of nature as wind at our backs, we do the detective work, problem-solving, leaning into challenges, and tuning into the body that is required to heal. Generating life force energy and eradicating illness in this way often leads to lasting vibrant health!
I consider it a privilege and honor to guide and empower others to feel safe in their bodies and trust their own unique path toward health. As someone who’s personally lived with and learned how to manage chronic pain and illness, I can say with confidence that while the healing path may not be linear, with hope and an open mind, anything is possible.
I provide thorough and individualized treatment, take pride in being an active listener, and make sure that all of your concerns are heard and addressed. I utilize all the tools East Asian Medicine has to offer, including acupuncture, herbal therapy, moxibustion, cupping/gua sha, bodywork, diet, and lifestyle medicine.
In my free time, I enjoy being in the kitchen testing out new recipes, forest bathing, and watching documentaries. I look forward to working with you!
Hello! My name is Magdalena. I moved to the mid-Hudson Valley to pursue what I believe will be an invaluable experience to further my knowledge of holistic health and herbalism. My passion lies in being of service to others especially when it comes to health and holding space, and that is why I am where I am today.
I am grateful to be working alongside such kind and knowledgeable people who have already made me feel at home. I very much look forward to getting to know those of you that are part of this vibrant community.
Hello and welcome! My name is Amber and I will be the cheerful face greeting you at the front desk Monday-Wednesday. Being able to incorporate my passion for nature, herbalism, and a love of helping others at NLHC is an honor.

My role at NLHC / Uprooting Lyme is to implement our Holistic Lyme Practitioner Mentorship program, and our other innovative educational and treatment programs for practitioners and patients. I also manage the herbal apothecary at the Nourishing Life Health Center. I am a student of Vitalist Western herbalism and an aspiring clinical herbalist. I come to NLHC / Uprooting Lyme with a background in healthcare, education, farming, and food system and medical activism. It’s been a dream come true to use my skills to support others walking this path, and such a joy to learn from some amazing mentors (patients and practitioners alike) in the process.
