Our Therapists

Dr. Jessica Dorland MS MEd LPC DBH

Dr. Dorland is the Clinical Director at In One Peace and works with all the therapists to provide a unique and caring experience that meets the needs of each individual who enters our doors.

While receiving a degree in physiology, Jessica decided to focus on how the human body handles stress. Her senior capstone mapped theoretical pathways for the brain’s interpretation of stress as actual physical symptoms. After finishing her undergraduate work, she continued with a Master’s in education in order to work directly with an adolescent population. As a teacher Jessica has been able to work with individual teens on developing career skills and vocational abilities. Jessica also has extensive experience as a domestic violence counselor in a shelter where women and children came to start over. This experience manifests as a benefit for crisis and emotional issues as well as practical implementation of goal setting. These experiences have led her to the spiritual side of healing as well. Jessica has experience with the benefits of massage and acupuncture, and encourages the use of meditation to promote mental and physical health. After receiving a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling she has continued on to earn a doctorate in behavioral health from Arizona State University. As explained at ASU’s School of Letters and Sciences website, the Doctor of Behavioral Health, or DBH, is tailored to the emerging need for innovative behavioral clinicians who practice in primary care and medical settings. The DBH curriculum and practicum are designed to offer a unique blend of evidence-based behavioral interventions, medical literacy, health systems, and entrepreneurship skills that will meet the needs of the health-care, reform-driven marketplace. The explicit goal of this program is to graduate clinicians who can deliver and document interventions that produce clinical and functional improvement, patient and provider satisfaction, and cost-savings by decreasing overuse of medical resources and the cost of lost productivity to employers.

Our Acupuncturists

Brian Lau  RN L.Ac

Brian Lau is a Licensed Acupuncturist with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine. He started his career with an Associates degree and then a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Northern Arizona University, and has over a decade experience working as a psychiatric registered nurse in the mental health and addiction field. Brian has worked with all age groups as a registered nurse, and it is his work as a nurse that lead him to discover the science and art of acupuncture and how effective it can be in healing and health. It is because of this discovery that Brian went on to attend the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine and obtained his Masters in both acupuncture and Chinese Herbs as well as a certification in the Chinese Body work form known as Tuina and earned the title of Diplomate of Oriental Medicine from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. 

 

Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.” Brian does not like the idea of getting stuck as a healer, so this is why he constantly learns and finds new tools and skills to help others with. He strives to help others who are motivated to transform and renew their minds and not conform to the patterns that they can get sick and stuck in with their lives, emotions, and health. 

 

 

 

Jeffrey Kenney L.Ac

Jeffrey is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Arizona. He has been practicing Chinese Medicine for over 18 years. In addition to practicing acupuncture he also practices Medical Qigong.

Medical Qigong is one of the foundational pillars of Chinese medicine that can release long-standing deep emotional issues, or enhance an acupuncture treatment.

Using the art and knowledge of Chinese Medicine, and through many years of clinical work, Jeffrey has become effective in the release of physical, emotional, and energetic issues. Originally from Bethesda Maryland, Jeffrey recently moved to the state of Arizona, and now looks forward to bringing health and wellness to the greater Tucson population.
