Personal Quote: 

I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy as well as a clinical massage therapist, Pilates teacher, yoga instructor, and former professional dancer. That combination benefits my patients because I use a holistic approach to healing and treatment. Communication, while we work together, is highly important. I know that every patient is unique, and my primary objective is to customize our plan of care to meet your individual needs. I look forward to helping you achieve your specific movement goals.
