Pediatric Pelvic Health
Are you at your wit’s end with potty training your toddler?
Do you have an older child who still struggles with daytime incontinence, bed wetting, or constipation?
Physical therapy can help children overcome the following struggles:
Difficulty with potty training
Daytime urinary incontinence
Encopresis (fecal incontinence)
Vesicoureteral reflux (Backflow of urine into the kidney)
Pelvic and/or abdominal pain
Recurrent urinary tract infections
Children thrive in the comfort of home. Meeting in your home allows me to assess your child in their natural environment. Children are able to overcome their bowel and bladder issues more successfully when they feel relaxed and comfortable. I use a variety of non-invasive treatment techniques to help retrain muscles, improve posture and core strength, and provide helpful tips to improve daily routines and voiding habits.
Pregnancy and Postpartum
Every woman deserves the support of a physical therapist during and after pregnancy. Whether you are pregnant, just had your baby, or are several months or years postpartum, I am here to help you with the following issues:
Pregnancy safe exercise and birth preparation
Diastasis recti (abdominal separation)
Pain in back, lower abdominals, groin, or hips
Sacroiliac joint pain and dysfunction
Pubic symphysis pain
Headaches and neck pain
Urine or bowel leakage
Postpartum return to exercise
Prolapse and heaviness
C-section scar sensitivity
The best part? You don’t have to leave home.
Breastfeeding Conditions and Tethered Oral Tissues
Breastfeeding can be a painful and frustrating experience for you and your baby, but it doesn’t have to be. You and your new baby deserve a provider that understands both the physical and emotional aspects involved for both mom AND baby.
I will assess both mom and baby to find the root cause of the following issues:
Clogged milk ducts
Early symptoms of mastitis (must be within first 24 hours of redness/inflammation)
Pain in neck/shoulders
Positioning challenges during feeding
Torticollis (tightness in neck that may affect breastfeeding, particularly on one side)
Tethered oral tissues (lip or tongue tie)
Pre/post tongue or lip tie release therapy
For the most successful breastfeeding outcomes, collaboration with a lactation consultant may also be recommended.
Infant and Early Childhood Development
Have you ever been told to “wait and see” by your healthcare provider?
Do you find yourself resorting to Google to ask “is this normal", and become anxious by what you read online?
Being a parent can be overwhelming. Building a strong foundation from day one will help set your baby up for optimal development. As an expert on infant and early childhood development, I am here to answer questions, ease your worries, and help your child thrive.
You don’t have to “wait and see!”
As your physical therapist, I can help your babies and children struggling with the following concerns:
Torticollis (tight neck and head rotation preference)
Plagiocephaly (flat head)
Tethered oral tissues (tongue and lip tie)
Difficulty with tummy time

Balance and coordination difficulties
