Joined Lighthouse in 2012 – 1 year

Physical therapy has been an integral part of my life for over 30 years. As a graduate of Boston University, I began my career in the rehabilitation setting with mainly an adult neurological population. I continued with acute neurological and orthopedic rotations at MGH in Boston until my career path transitioned through orthopedic, sports medicine and pain management private practices. At the same time, I also pursued consulting opportunities in nursing centers and home health settings.

Throughout these periods of development, I felt a deepened sense of the intricate nature of true health and the multi-faceted layers that would enable me to help my patients achieve health and enhance the “wellness” of their lives. My interest in pursuing advanced training in manual therapy began over 20 years ago with Craniosacral Therapy & Visceral Mobilization with the Upledger Institute, Zero Balancing and eventually into a course of training in Integrative Manual Therapy.

I fulfilled a personal goal of opening my own PT office and practicing for the last 15 years in the North Shore of Boston. During this time, I also completed a certification in IMT in 2007 from the Connecticut school of Integrative Manual Therapy in West Hartford, CT. It was during this period that I was able to focus on the kind of whole health approach that I had envisioned for my patients. After a recent move to the Seacoast area, I was privileged to join my friends and colleagues at Lighthouse PT.

For most of my life I have been a student of Yoga & Buddhist Teachings which has provided a strong foundation to my work and my life. Most importantly, I have been blessed and inspired by the love of my beautiful family. My recreational interests include travel, boating, skiing and singing in a world music chorus in Portsmouth.

I believe in the power of compassionate wisdom and have stood very often in awe of my patients, my greatest teachers……. The journey is the reward! (Buddha).
