Philosophy of care and typical treatment strategies:
I have found that working with a holistic, team approach is essential for people experiencing any concern or suspicion of endometriosis. There is not one discipline that can cover the needs of such a complex and uniquely presenting disease process throughout a lifetime. My role is to expand and improve on a diverse set of knowledge by regularly attending continuing education specific to endometriosis and pelvic pain syndromes.
Advanced internal and general manual therapy techniques such as myofascial release, visceral manipulation and autonomic nervous system regulation are frequently implemented. Lifestyle medicine concepts may include finding the right type of movement/fitness and conservative pain management to allow the patient to achieve their goals. My patient-centered soft skills are being empathetic, trauma-informed, humorous with an intuitive approach.

Over the course of a 25+ year career as a Pelvic Health PT, I have had the privilege of training and collaborating with world-renowned experts in pelvic PT, pain management, MIGS, midwifery and functional medicine. My resourcing reach goes beyond local communities to the leaders in the endometriosis treatment and birthing community for current, evidenced-based and complimentary therapies. Promoting awareness for early diagnosis and proactive treatments for fertility preservation are areas of special interest.
