I have an extreme passion for physiotherapy; I love my job, and I love helping people. Science fascinates me, and sports and exercise have always been a part of my life. A career in physiotherapy was a great way to put the two together. Being a physiotherapist challenges me every day, and I am most content when I am solving problems.
I love my job, and I love helping people.
I treat all types of clients and conditions. I do not believe that there is one specific treatment protocol for everyone; instead, I encourage my clients to explore the various treatment options. As a physiotherapist, I help my clients to improve their range of motion, stability, muscle balance, strength, and overall body function.
Learning is important to me, and I am continuously educating myself in current assessment and treatment options. My extensive training allows me to offer treatments such as manual therapy, dry needling, neurokinetic therapy, techniques for concussion and vertigo, K-taping, and myofascial cupping to name a few.
Another treatment that I offer is pelvic floor physiotherapy. This is an evidence-based treatment that is amazingly effective in improving incontinence in women. It is also beneficial for women during pregnancy and post-partum, individuals with pelvic, back, and hip pain, menstrual issues, bowel/bladder dysfunctions, issues with sexual function, and other pelvic floor issues.
Every day I have the privilege to treat clients who have experienced months or sometimes years of pain and dysfunction. These clients eventually become completely pain-free and functional; for me, that is extremely rewarding.
Although I spent many years away from the Ottawa Valley during University, I feel connected to this area through my family and friends. I am happy to be raising my family here and you will find me at the golf course, on the soccer pitch, or enjoying the beautiful trails and forest that the valley is famous for. Get out and be active and enjoy your life!
