Passions

Manual therapy, specifically effecting our fascia.  Fascia runs throughout our entire body and issues can cause pain and dysfunction.  One technique I use to help with fascial restrictions is called Fascial Counterstrain.  This technique is very relaxing and when used in conjunction with specific strengthening, has amazing results.

Camping, hiking, riding my bike or just playing with my dogs.  As a WSU alumni, I have season tickets for football and every fall you will find me cheering on my Cougs come sun, rain, or snow!

Specialties

Water is an amazing therapy environment.  For people who have tried exercising on land and find it too difficult or painful, working out in the pool can be very helpful.  The buoyancy of the water helps to unweight the body/spine and allows people to do more than they are able to on land. 

Why Physical Therapy?

I've been drawn to physical therapy ever since High School when I ruptured my ACL. During the recovery process I realized how much I love this field.
