Our Team

Dr. Brian Meyer, MD

Board Certified Physician and Acupuncturist

Dr. Meyer is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician.  He spent eleven years practicing as a general Internist – 7 years as a primary care provider (in both private practice and academic settings) and 4 years as a hospitalist.  In 2016, he decided to expand his scope of practice and study acupuncture. He completed Harvard’s 300-hour International Structural Acupuncture Course for Physicians in 2017.  He then took a position in the Wounded Warrior Clinic at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda — providing acupuncture to injured service members.  He has continued his acupuncture education by studying with Kiiko Matsumoto, Jeffrey Yuen and Lonny Jarrett. He has additional training in the Tan Balance Method, Battlefield acupuncture and the NADA protocol. He enjoys practicing acupuncture because the longer appointments allow him to listen carefully to his patients and tailor the treatments to their needs. He is excited to be part of the Ha.Lé team.

Janice Cathey

CEO and Founder

As a visionary of integrated medicine, Janice is fascinated by the body’s ability to heal. She has devoted her professional life to finding pathways to elicit healthy responses in mind and body. 

In 2015, she opened Ha.Lé as a way to help bridge the gap between western medicine and integrative health care. Informed by her 15 years of LMT private practice, she understands that the body is biointelligent and has the ability to heal through therapeutic movement and somatics.  

As an entrepreneur, Janice regularly has experiences and engages with people who upgrade her current approach and perspective of life. Psychologists call this selective attention. What we’re focused on expands us. Her attention has been on engagement with healing processes, through integrative health care. 

Janice’s goal has been to create an environment for healing, growth, and transformation. Zen philosophy talks about the 5 aspects of life, which is the supreme meal: spirituality, study & learning, livelihood, social action & change, relationship & community. Ha.Lé exemplifies the supreme meal.

Dawn Griffith, RYT

Ha.Lé Movement, Restorative Movement, & Private Somatics

Dawn did yoga off and on all through college but did not have a consistent practice until a few years later. She rediscovered the benefits of yoga, because it helped her with rock climbing. She noticed if she took a class before she climbed she would have a wider range of flexibility, strength and just all around more relaxed. Finally after consistently practicing for 2 years, she decided to take the plunge and get her RYT in the spring of 2014 in Charlotte, North Carolina at Y2 Yoga. She uses styles from many different types of yoga. “I love teaching students how to appreciate every aspect of their practice, and it is so inspiring watching each student’s practice grow and transform.”

Dawn enjoys teaching a wide range of styles from Ashtanga inspired to more restorative to Moon salutation. Each practice has the opportunity to unlock different aspects of ourselves and to balance the mind, body, and emotional body with the breath.
