To be a part of someone's healing, often when other methods have not helped, is exciting.
It is so rewarding when a client tells me they are out of pain and that their life is better.
I have worked with a wide range of clients and health issues over the past thirty years and have the same passion as when I started.
In 1990 I became a certified Massage Therapist at Monterey Institute of Touch in Carmel Valley. Returning to Arizona, I started a private practice after working at Elizabeth Arden's Maine Chance Spa.
Wanting to have a greater impact on healing, I began working at St. Joseph's Barrow neurological rehabilitation and went on to receive my doctorate of physical therapy from Northern Arizona University.
From 2001 to 2009, I was a physical therapist at Flagstaff Medical Center Neuro Rehabilitation Center until it closed, I then provided care throughout the hospital, treating patients from preemies to 105 years and with a wide variety of conditions.
Before becoming an independent contractor for home health and skilled nursing agencies in Arizona, I was a home health rehab director.
In 2014, I began training with John F Barnes, the founder of Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach and discovered what I had been searching for: a treatment that brings authentic healing to people with lasting and profound effects.
Bearhand Physical Therapy, specializing in myofascial release, opened in Phoenix, January 1, 2020.
I look forward to bringing well-being and good health to the lives I touch.
