I received my B.A. in Psychology from Barnard College and went on to pursue my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at New York University (NYU). Several years after graduation, I found my passion in pelvic floor physical therapy: there is so much need and so much good to be done! I especially love helping postpartum moms navigate the world of issues “down there” by giving them the knowledge and tools they need to tackle any bowel, bladder or sex-related problems they may be dealing with at the moment. Collaborative and compassionate care are the hallmarks of my practice.
I’m also a firm believer in life-long learning, and carve out time throughout the year to attend conferences, take continuing education courses, and stay up-to-date on new research in the field. In this way, I can provide the best possible care to my patients. I’ve taken extensive coursework in pelvic health topics through the renowned Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute as well as the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), and assist in teaching courses as my schedule permits. I have been a member of the APTA since 2012, am a Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner (PRPC) through Herman & Wallace and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and have a background as a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), a self-defense (Krav Maga) instructor, and as an advanced outdoor guide in New York State for many years.
