What you should know about me: My passion for endometriosis came from seeing patient after patient who had gotten nowhere with their treatment for YEARS. The physical, mental, and emotional toll it had taken on these people was heartbreaking. I committed myself to being the person to treat what I could and guide them to the right people for the things that are outside of my scope of practice.

take a biopsychosocial approach to treat all aspects of the person. Treatment techniques I use include myofascial release, trigger point release, stretching, scar tissue mobilization, and somatic exercises. We also work to decrease central nervous system sensitization that can amplify pain signals – breathing exercises, vagus nerve stimulation, and education. We use treatments such as TENS and dry needling for patients open to these modalities.

I help patients prepare for excision surgery and recover after surgery. I also treat secondary symptoms that occur with endometriosis such as hip/back/groin pain, pain with intercourse, interstitial cystitis, and more! I firmly believe in a team approach and am dedicated to using my network of other practitioners to help patients.

It’s not “all in your head” and I would love to help you.
