Current Role Working with Athletes

I am a physical therapist who works primarily with clients of all ages, who's goals are mainly to return to their athletic pursuits and passions. I treat a variety of orthopedic injuries of the human body on a daily basis and enjoy facilitating their ability to accomplish their goals and dreams.

Professional Philosophy

My philosophy is to return my patient's to their love and passion stronger than when they started physical therapy. I focus my personalized treatments on the whole individual and use patient education, manual therapy, therapeutic neuroscience education and more in order to restore patient's functional abilities. I believe that everyone comes to physical therapy with different needs, wants and goals. My hope is that when patients complete rehabilitation, they are able to achieve whatever their individual endeavors may be,
