I help people return to daily activities with an illness or injury. My greatest joy is to see people thrive at home as long as possible

I've been an occupational therapist for over 10 years. I've worked in just about every setting in rehabilitation. When in school there was not a focus on wellness overall. We would rehabilitate someone so they could be independent at home, but never answered the question about what's next. The insurance model really limits wellness and prevention activities because they usually don't cover it. I created this company so that we could provide our expertise throughout the life span and for many different issues.
I also have a special interest in wellness because of my own journey over the years. I was finally diagnosed with a genetic connective tissue disorder with chronic pain and fatigue. With the help of a great team of PTs, doctors, and support groups for nutrition, I've been able to stay functional most days. Because of that I really understand the frustrations people have with the insurance model and the struggle to find a provider who can help. I hope to be that provider! If I find that you may be served better with a different provider, I'm happy to help you find someone.
My usual steps are to identify and address issues like pain, weakness, and decreased range of motion that are affecting function through the use of relaxing techniques and corrective exercises/stretches. After that is addressed, we address your long-term goals with fitness and overall function. We call this "Mount Do-More." (see graphic in photos).
You should expect someone who listens to you, finds out what is most important to you, and provides a thorough exam with steps you can immediately take to work toward feeling better.
I've always wanted to help people and have a love of learning and science. After graduating I was able to experience the power of using meaningful activities (the "occupation" in occupational therapy) to create huge changes and improvements.
