I have been a physical therapist (PT) for over 20 years, and have been blessed to have been working in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area for the past 10 years. I’ve worked in a variety of clinical settings, including outpatient, acute rehabilitation, hospital, and am currently working in an integrative care setting.
Throughout my career, I have enjoyed working with a variety of neurological diagnoses including traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, vestibular dysfunction, multiple sclerosis, pediatrics, children with a sensory processing disorder, and general balance dysfunction. I have also worked with chronic pain, cancer, fibromyalgia, Lymes, migraines, spinal and shoulder injuries, and joint replacements. My clientele includes newborns, children, adults of all ages, and a few animals.
I have also had extensive training in craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, movement re-education, reflex integration, and am a certified neurodevelopmental practitioner. I view each patient as a unique individual with a distinct health background and condition. I never use a “cookbook” approach to treatments. I seek to meet each person as an individual by thoroughly evaluating his/her health history, as well as his/her goals and strengths, before determining the best course of action for the patient and me to work together as a team
