My Philosophy of Care

I enjoy building relationships and learning about what each individual values, so together as a team, we can create a plan to maximize your quality of life. Active participation in curating your personal goals is highly encouraged. I am passionate about education and believe each patient has the potential to learn how to become more in-tune with their body to develop improved movement patterns and strategies for independent symptom management. I strive to couple empathy and humor in every session so that patients feel validated and understood while genuinely enjoying the rehab process. I try to honor that the rehab journey can often be dynamic and fluctuating – usually demanding psychological and emotional growth as well as physical gains – and I promise to be invested in your outcome while serving as both your coach and cheerleader.

What to Look for in a Physical Therapist: Evidenced Based Practice

My Personal Story

I grew up in a small town in suburban NJ competing in soccer, basketball, softball, swimming, etc. and have tried to continue an active lifestyle into adulthood. I knew I wanted to be a physical therapist since I was in second grade because I wanted to follow in my mom’s footsteps -- helping others heal and encouraging them to take ownership of their health and wellbeing. I became more involved in running and triathlons during college and through exposure to hiking in New England found that I could couple my appreciation for nature with my enthusiasm for movement. When I am not playing tennis or sailing with my partner, I can often be found reading, going to a comedy show / spoken word event, or telling someone about how much I love Carvel ice cream cakes.
