About...

Laura

I'm a physical therapist with over 17 years of experience.  After graduating with a doctorate of physical therapy degree (DPT) from Boston University in 2005, I moved back home to California and worked in a variety of outpatient settings focused on orthopedics and sports medicine.  After experiencing my own journey through pregnancy and the birth of my two amazing boys, I quickly realized the shortcomings of prenatal and postpartum rehabilitation in our healthcare system.   This was the catalyst for me to pursue advanced training in the field of women's health physical therapy beginning 10 years ago.  I have a passion for empowering women to gain ownership over their bodies, their physical health and their overall well-being in order to live their best life.  I do this through education, building awareness, treating physical impairments and building a toolkit for each client so that they can be proactive in their health and healing.
 When I'm not connecting with my patients, I'm running around with my 12 and 10 year old sons, planning our next big travel adventure and enjoying any available quiet time with my husband.

About
Services

Treatment Specialities...

 If you feel insecure, limited or frustrated by pelvic floor or other women’s health issues, I can help you find hope and begin a journey toward wellbeing.  I treat my clients with compassion, individualized care, and empower them to achieve their fitness and functional goals.  I look forward to helping you begin your Well Woman journey.

The value of telehealth...

If you are pregnant, a new mom or a working mom, it is often difficult to leave the house or carve out time to go to a clinic for physical therapy services.  Telehealth sessions are the perfect match to your busy schedule so that you can juggle your responsibilities AND take charge of your health and wellbeing.  I can help answer your orthopedic and pelvic floor questions, teach you about tools, techniques and exercises to help you begin to feel better, feel stronger and feel empowered.
