Dr. Strass has walked a long and winding road in her life. She comes from a very long line of survivors. Her family tree is rooted in Eastern European and Ukrainian Jewish culture. It is filled with musicians, lawyers, scholars, and scientists. She was raised to live with an attitude of resilience and to practice mental flexibility. She brings this with her and shares it wherever she goes. Initially trained as a classical singer and guitarist, she changed course and earned her bachelor’s degree in Russian. She then mastered the science of computer programming, working with servers and user interfaces. However, as none of these vocations satisfied her need to be of service, she went back to school for Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs and has remained focused on holistic health since that time.
Her services are available in English, Spanish, and Russian.
