Philosophy of Care

I enjoy working with patients from all types of backgrounds. I enjoy developing professional relationships with my patients and take pride in being an active listener. I strive to provide quality one-on-one time with patients to enable them to obtain the most of their time in physical therapy. I feel that providing patients with education on mechanics, ergonomics and prevention is an essential aspect of treatment. My goal is to provide patients with the education they require to manage their current symptoms independently and to prevent future episodes from occurring.
