I have been treating patients with acute and chronic orthopedic conditions in private practice settings since for since 2000. I received a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University in 1999 and continued with extensive post-graduate training in manual therapy, women’s health, pelvic rehabilitation, Pilates. In 2002, I worked with therapists that specialized in treating pregnant and post-partum patients and enjoyed it so much that I studied childbirth education with The Childbirth Educators of Metropolitan New York from 2003-2005. I also became interested in pelvic rehabilitation and worked with several pelvic PT specialists in NYC while taking Herman and Wallace courses from 2003-2008. In 2008 I took a Polestar Pilates course with a colleague and loved it so much that I took their Pilates for Rehabilitation training from 2009-2010. I now apply their Pilates principles to all of my exercise programs. In 2017, I started studying myofascial release with John F. Barnes and found his gentle techniques and unique approach to health and healing extremely helpful for all of my patients.
I am a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the National Vulvodynia Association and the International Pelvic Pain Society.
I treat the whole body and the whole person. Each patient I see has a unique medical and personal history, and therefore each treatment and plan of care is also unique. Each patient is on their own journey through a healing process. As we work together I support them on this journey, and at the same time, I have a new experience that makes me a better healer.
