Life for me, similar to all humans, has been a journey with ups and downs, injuries, and repetitive stress. I reached a point where my physical body was in a state of dysfunction. Pain, stiffness and a general unease became my everyday experience.  As a physical therapist, I had an inner knowing that this was not the natural state of the human body.  My desire to understand this truth more deeply led me to study Functional Manual Therapy™.  This training was a complete paradigm shift with its unique, 3 pillar approach to optimizing human movement.  It gave me the tools to understand the human body as an interconnected unit and be able to enhance mechanical capacity of all body tissues, neuromuscular function and motor control. Within this framework, I also include my training in Visceral Manipulation, Craniosacral Therapy and  Frequency Specific Microcurrent.

These modalities each played pivotal roles in helping me to eliminate pain and to make a shift towards a greater sense of ease and wholeness in my body.  The positive effects on my overall health, well-being and athletic performance were significant. This is why I feel so passionate about sharing this knowledge and helping others to make the shift to unlock their own potential.

With over 15 years experience as a Physical Therapist, I specialize in treating a variety of orthopedic conditions.​  In 2019, I received my certification in Functional Manual Therapy through the Institute of Physical Art.

I believe a whole person, individualized approach to patient care can help to get to the root causes of pain syndromes.  In my practice, I seek to understand all of the factors that could be contributing to my client's clinical picture. Treatment primarily directed at managing symptoms can give temporary relief, but often does not create the change needed for resolution in the long term.

In my free time, I enjoy skiing, mountain and road biking, yoga, travel, gardening, cooking, reading, music, learning new things and spending time with my two daughters, husband, family and friends.
