My education and training…
have been practicing as a Physical Therapist since 2009. I started my career as an orthopedics/sports therapist and decided to specialize in Pelvic Health in 2011. Having suffered 2 tailbone fractures, one very long labor, and vaginal delivery, I have had my share of pelvic health challenges and used my knowledge and skills to overcome them. I truly believe that our entire physical health is rooted in the efficient function of the pelvis.
I love being a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist because…
I get to help women feel strong and powerful! It is truly rewarding to help women live a pain-free life, avoid unnecessary surgeries and medications, and feel at home in their own bodies.
My work style:
With double board certifications in Orthopedics and Pelvic health, my treatment philosophy relies on evaluating the entire body as one connected system. While treating any pelvic floor condition, I always look at the ”bigger picture” including lower back pain, hip pain, neck pain, headaches, and jaw pain (all of which happen very frequently with pelvic pain). I also treat organ movement and position including uterus and bladder which are frequently affected in pregnant and postpartum women. I firmly believe in treating the “system”, not just the symptoms.
When I am not working with clients, I am...
in the Hudson valley, planning my next trip, and playing with my toddler. I also enjoy writing for a local mom's Collective Westchestercountymom.
