“My approach to therapy is simple. The method for treatment is always client-centered with a specific focus to get rid of pain, restore function and prevent further injury. My goal is to get you out of the clinic as fast as possible arming you with the tools needed to prevent any reoccurrence of symptoms. I have dedicated my life to this profession and am grateful to do something that I especially love.”
