Physical Therapist and Open Water Swimmer

During my 24 year career I have worked in numerous Physical Therapy settings in Portland and all over Oregon. I began my career as a staff therapist and worked up to Lead therapist at Providence St. Vincent Rehabilitation in Portland Oregon. I eventually started my own practice here in Portland and am now the owner of Synergy Spine Therapy in Portland Oregon.

In addition to numerous years treating back pain and spinal conditions I became a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist and credentialed in McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. The examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, intervention and prevention strategies for back, neck and extremity problems are aimed at patient education and independence. It is our pleasure to provide the McKenzie Method to the Portland Oregon community and greater Portland Metro area.

Our philosophy is to provide evidence based treatment and excellent customer care.

This philosophy makes us focus on the patient as a whole. The result is our patients feel not just healthier, but more happy and cheerful too!
