Assist Patients in Eliminating Pain, Dysfunction and Achieve their Goals.

"My brother introduced me to the physical therapy field when I was in high school. I'm so glad he did because I love it! I've has been working for 30 years and enjoy taking care of patients with all types of dysfunction. No case is too difficult because I've treated patients with chronic pain in the head, spine and extremities. I also have experience working with patients with vestibular concerns.

I have taken a number of courses in Integrative Manual Therapy which involves a full body system approach. These are a gentle, hands-on techniques. I look for the real root of the problem to treat, not just the symptoms."
