About these Clinics/Practices

We are a small private practice clinic with a focus on individualized one on one care. I have been working with individuals with generalized joint hypermobility/HSD/hEDS since 2003 and focused on this topic while achieving a post-professional doctorate (PP-DPT) completed in 2014. Over half of my caseload is individuals with hypermobile joints, abnormal connective tissue &/or chronic pain and fatigue. I have additional specialty training in peri-partum care and have supported women with GJH/HSD/hEDS through this phase. I experience GJH and meet 2017 criteria for hEDS, so I truly understand the pain and struggle that my patients live each day. My approach is focused on training body awareness and optimal movement strategies (Movement Impairment Syndromes Approach) and empowering individuals to take control of their daily lives. I have developed a style of manual therapy through trial and error that provides temporary symptom relief and augments the home exercise program and movement strategies. I also focus on training self care skills for pain management (TENS, hot/cold, massage, sleep hygiene, etc). I offer no miracles, but promise better management of our very unique bodies.
