Welcome! I am a physical therapist who believes passionately in providing alternatives to medications, testing, and surgery for those living with pain and dysfunction – me included. Whether you are a patient, clinician, or both I hope you find this site helpful and inspirational for broadening how you think about the body, preventive care, and being well.

Our bodies truly are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139) with an incredible capacity for healing. Central to this is respecting the role of the connective tissues especially the fascia. We are meant to move! This applies to bones, biceps, bowels, and backs. I firmly believe that many of the issues attributed to aging can be diminished or averted with early recognition and proper attention to the connective tissues. Thanks for joining me in my effort to promote this perspective and health across the lifespan!
