A physical therapist for 19 years, I hold board certifications in geriatric and neurologic physical therapy through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT 200) through Yoga Alliance and a PWR!Moves Certified Therapist for people with Parkinson disease through Parkinson Wellness Recovery (www.pwr4life.org). I work with patients/clients with chronic health conditions, stroke and other types of acquired brain injury, neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson disease and multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders, orthopedic conditions, and cancer. My interests include yoga and yoga therapeutics, mindfulness meditation and mindfulness practices, physical fitness for special populations, and healthy aging.
I offer physical therapy services that include one-on-one instruction in yoga for Parkinson disease and other conditions and help link patients/clients to appropriate group exercise classes in the community (yoga, PWR!Moves, and others).
