I began my Physical Therapy career in the Public Education arena in New York State and in Arizona, providing PT to developmentally delayed and disabled children and adults. Additionally, working in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Home Care, and Hospital Rehabilitation units that served Post Surgical and Traumatic Brain Injury clients allowed me to gain invaluable "hands on" experience with a wide variety of patients.
Early in my manual training, I realized the value of Osteopathic approach and manual techniques toward helping my clients achieve goals previously not attainable. This sparked my drive to study and improve my manual skills.
As my passion for this work grew, I started my private practice and now work with my wife at Let the Good In(www.letthegoodin.com), in Portland,OR. This allowed me to seek more opportunities to develop, and deliver a synthesis of osteopathic manual therapy and traditional physical therapy techniques and to meet a wider variety of client needs.
At Let the Good In we truly believe in a "whole body approach" in all phases of practice. We help clients to see their symptoms as a result of their body's current health and make changes toward improving their level of heath. My manual therapy targets the body's natural self corrective mechanisms to help stimulate an internal change. Together with my wife, our yoga instruction will help you to achieve more health strength and movement. We encourage our clients to take an active role in supporting their general well being.
Sports have been a large part of my life including competing in Swimming, Baseball, and Volleyball since an early age. I achieved All American status as a swimmer and have worked with all levels of coaching swimming and stroke mechanics. I have successfully helped athletes in triathlons, volleyball, baseball, golf, and running, not only return to their sport but improve their efficiency and technique allowing them to perform at a higher level than before their injury. My passion for technique mechanics in all sports will benefit all athletes.
As an instructor for the Barral Institute I have enjoyed traveling to and working with students not only in North America, but several European countries, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, and South America.
