Hailing from across the pond, Kate was educated in England at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture BSc (Hons) in acupuncture and at the University of East London, where she completed a postgraduate degree in Chinese herbal medicine.

She first began practicing in 2010 at City Life Acupuncture, multi-bed clinic in London, and later in Amsterdam at AcuHealthCare, treating patients from all over the world. She treats many conditions but her areas of special interest include fertility, gynecology, pediatrics, dermatology, and musculoskeletal disorders.  Her success with both male and female infertility is a main area of her work. She guides those trying to conceive by utilizing the power of Chinese herbal medicine, combined with acupuncture, and assisting couples choosing IVF and IUI treatments.

She loves supporting women through all stages of pregnancy, from conception, through pregnancy and to post-natal care.  She’s especially sensitive to the needs of women during this sensitive “fourth trimester.” 

As a mother of two, Kate enjoys the application of Chinese medicine for the care and well being of children. She has been fortunate to study with  Dr. Julian Scott, OMD, a world renowned pediatric acupuncturist located in the UK. 

She is licensed in Pennsylvania for both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Kate looks forward to working with you at Six Fishes.

In January of 2016 I had an hysterosalpingogram (HSG). This test showed that both of my fallopian tubes were blocked at the midsections. Although never diagnosed, I believe the blockages were due to endometriosis, which caused scar tissue around my fallopian tubes. The fertility specialist that performed the HSG told us that we would never conceive naturally, ie without IVF. I came to Cara in May of 2016 with blind hope. The initial consultation was in depth and covered many aspects of my health, emotional state and lifestyle. I finally felt that I was being listened to about my health issues and concerns. She guided me through dietary changes and supplements after that initial 2 hour appointment. Then we started with acupuncture and herbs and I soon noticed a difference with my periods. We monitored my cycles together. Through the whole process I never let myself lose hope and Cara was my cheerleader through it all! In Jan of 2017 I felt it was time to get another HSG to see if any progress had been made. To schedule this I needed to see a fertility specialist. We went to a different medical office and this specialist took a brief glance at my chart from my previous fertility testing and continued to council me on IVF as my only option. The fertility doctor was reluctant to order me another HSG, but finally agreed to write an order for the testing. My GYN performed the HSG in February of 2017 and to everyone’s surprise, BOTH tubes were completely OPEN. Despite having turned 40, we conceived naturally the next month and now I have a very active (downright wiggly) 5 month old. If it wasn’t for Cara Frank my daughter wouldn’t be here. I can never thank her enough for my little fish!
