My journey into this work of studying and treating the human body began when I was first introduced to yoga while in college. After many years of craving movement and not being encouraged and guided, I was on a full journey to discovering movement and how it could help define who I was as a person. After moving to California, my path to health and wellness continued even further as I made changes to my diet but yet struggled with years of chronic yeast and bacterial infections that also led to pelvic pain. Despite the many trajectories that life had thrown my way in my 20s and 30s, with the biggest and the main catalyst being my miscarriage at 20 weeks in 2012, I started my path to become a physical therapist. While in school, I discovered pelvic floor PT as a career option as I was fascinated with that part of the body yet felt a lot of shame, embarrassment and even confusion. During grad school, I continued to endure pelvic pain but not have the resources to find care for myself. I also battled with anxiety and struggled to find ways to understand it and where it came from. It was then that self-care became a new mainstay in my life, a practice that was both attainable and intuitive for me in overcoming my anxiety and instilling loving and caring for myself even when it was really hard. As a healthcare provider and having undergone 3 miscarriages, I hope to bring the work that I know around self-care, pelvic pain and infertility and bring hope, empowerment and health.
The first visit is an opportunity for me to get to know more about you, what you are coming in for and to help you establish your goals together as part of your plan of care. I will get a general baseline of your body by doing some range of motion screenings, look at your overall strength if indicated and get an understanding of where some of your pain points are located. If you are being seen for pelvic related issues or miscarriage/infertility, then a pelvic assessment will also be completed.
What inspired me to become a healer are my many experiences and challenges that I faced with my own body. Realizing that my own healing was ultimately up to me but having amazing guides along my journey to help instruct and form what I needed to do to heal were instrumental for me. Having an understanding that how I moved my body, what I put into my body and the environment that my body was in all helped to provide a space for my body to learn to heal in a gentle and informative way.
