Practice Philosophy

“I believe my job as a clinician is to find the most effective means to help patients regain function and achieve their goals. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing our hard work pay off and watching people return to doing what they love. I find client empowerment and education the most effective tool. I also employ a wide range of treatment techniques to help bring about change and move the healing process forward.”
