Listening, clear communication and holistic care are at the foundation of my practice. I aim to be as reachable and flexible as possible. I see all types of injuries and have experience working with olympic gymnasts, professional, collegiate and high school athletes. I have a special interest in treating rock climbing injuries and am either outdoors or in the gym climbing multiple times a week.
