Class Assignment

Katrina is a California licensed and nationally certified acupuncturist.

“Coming out and being a part of queer community—with transgender and gender non-conforming loved ones—brought my attention to the disparities in access to safe, inclusive healthcare for LGBTQ people and I went into the acupuncture program with the intention of focusing in LGBTQ medicine.

My personal connection to queer and lesbian communities has, and continues to be the driving focus of my private practice. I love guiding patients through times of hormonal upheaval, allowing them to stay grounded despite the emotional turmoil that often accompanies times of illness. My favorite part of my job is watching people regain ownership of their healing process, reconnect with their bodies, and make positive changes in their lives.”

Katrina’s Oakland private practice specializes in LGBTQ holistic healthcare and transgender medicine. She and her colleague, Carlos Haycock LAc, provide acupuncture, cupping massage, moxibustion warming therapy, and herbal medicine for hormone regulation and side effects of hormone therapy, anxiety, depression and gender dysphoria, pain from chest binding, menstrual pain and irregularities, post-surgical pain, and scar tissue. Patients are primarily transgender and gender non-conforming and are reassured to find a practice that specializes in effectively and holistically addressing their unique needs.

In addition to maintaining a private practice, Katrina is also a Professor and the Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley. She teaches an eight-hour series instructing students on gender vocabulary and pronouns, western and eastern transgender medicine, and approaches for creating an LGBTQI-inclusive practice. She also teaches the faculty and staff of AIMC about working with trans students and patients, and leads a workshop for the students at ACCHS, Oakland on basic gender terminology and pronouns.
