PHILOSOPHY ON TREATMENT

I firmly believe that a combination of exercise prescription and manual therapy is effective in decreasing symptoms, targeting dysfunction, promoting healing, and preventing future injury. I believe that it is imperative that the client understands what might be going on, approximate healing timelines, and the overall treatment plan. Furthermore, creating goals that are meaningful to my clients are crucial for maximizing exercise adherence and success of the treatment plan.

I BECAME A PHYSIOTHERAPIST BECAUSE

I sustained a significant elbow injury as a teenager that required elbow reconstruction surgery. Physio was a critical part of my rehab and helped me return to racket sports despite my doctors initially telling me it was unlikely!

WHAT I BRING TO THE TABLE

Through my education in physiotherapy, personal training, and kinesiology, I possess a strong ability to prescribe innovative exercises that address a client’s specific needs. Personally, I would describe myself as an easygoing and compassionate individual who understands that successful rehab requires effective communication between practitioner and client. Moreover, I bring many experiences working with various client populations through the public and private sector as well.

A LITTLE BACK STORY

Growing up in Vancouver BC, I have been a die-hard Canucks fan since I was 7 years old and have followed them through their highs and many, many lows. I also closely follow the Toronto Raptors of the NBA (basketball) and Tottenham Hotspurs of the English Premier League (soccer). Feel free to chat sports with me!

OUTSIDE CLINIC LIFE

Outside the clinic, you can find me playing sports like tennis, badminton, ultimate frisbee, and basketball. You may also catch me exploring the outdoors and running around with my tripod and digital camera.
