Treatment Philosophy

I approach assessment and treatment by looking at the whole picture for each client and taking a holistic approach. I consider their primary complaint, history and personal goals. I use a combination of movement and neurological screens, range of motion, balance and functional strength to assess clients and create a treatment plan. Since no two clients are the same, treatments are individualized.

I believe in prevention. Even without pain, dysfunctions can lead to wear and tear, compensations and then pain further down the road.

Other Interests

As a competitive athlete in gymnastics and cross country running and track and field, I have learned the importance of an active life, and also physiotherapy! I like to spend my time with friends and family in my garden, on the mountains, fishing, skiing, cycling or making a meal with food we have grown and harvested.
