Treatment Philosophy

I started my career in health and wellness coaching athletes both in group settings and individually. I have found that there are benefits to both avenues, however individual programming offers a more tailored program pertaining to a person’s strengths and weaknesses. Seeking the help of a physical therapist is no different. Addressing your individual dysfunctions instead of just doing a bunch of stretches or exercises found online will provide a more direct path for your return to life, activity, or sport. In working with an injured person, my goal is to begin the reintegration and return to their preferred activities. Having experience working with athletes at all levels including Olympians, NFL prospects, collegiate varsity athletes, tactical athletes, and weekend warriors, I understand that each person has unique requirements and functional demands. Though my passion is working with the athletic population, I enjoy the opportunity to work with anyone, regardless of their athletic background. My motto is as follows: “Every person is an athlete with their needs varying by degree, not kind.”

Personal Interests

I am very active outside of work. I have done marathons, triathlons, and I compete in local CrossFit competitions. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, and pretty much everything that will get me to spend more time outdoors. I rarely just sit back and relax and would rather be working on my house’s many remodeling projects. As a new transplant coming from Boston, I am always looking to travel and experience all that the West Coast has to offer.
