About Me and My Practice

My practice strives to prevent, manage, reduce, or resolve common physical symptoms that are experienced during pregnancy or postpartum. Through my practice, my goal is:

  • To prevent you from putting life on hold due to  bladder leakage or debilitating pelvic pain.
  • To ensure you are able to exercise in ways that make you happy, play with and lift your kids, and have an intimate relationship with your partner without pain.
  • To empower women to go into birth feeling strong and confident in their bodies and have the guidance they deserve for optimal health and recovery postpartum.
  • To always take an evidence-based approach to care and continue to stay current in my practice to maintain the highest standard of care for my patients.

As a registered physiotherapist I received a Masters of Science degree in Physical Therapy from McGill University and a Bachelors of Science degree in Honours Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo.

I have pursued professional development in several areas including manual therapy, soft tissue release, exercise prescription, acupuncture, and pelvic health. I have received my certification in Integrated Dry Needling and my Diploma of Advanced Manual and Manipulative Therapy making me a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT).

As a pelvic health physiotherapist, my practice has a special focus on prenatal and postpartum care.  After going through pregnancy and birth myself, my passion for women’s health grew. In an effort to provide better maternal support I attained physio-doula training which combines physiotherapy expertise with birth doula support and became a Certified Postnatal Fitness Specialist.
