I am reentering the field of Physical Therapy after taking a 10 year hiatus while focusing on the mothering of my four daughters. Now that they are all in school, I am excited to return to my passion of healing.
A farm girl from Nebraska, I received my undergraduate and masters degree in Education. After serving as an intern for the NCAA, I accepted a teaching position at Boys Town High School, working as a PE teacher while coaching volleyball, basketball and track. I then attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center and received a Master of Physical Therapy degree in 1997. Chronic pain was an area of interest, as I felt this patient population was not well understood and was under served. When a job at the University of Utah Pain Clinic became available, I was delighted to be hired and work for two years. A family move resulted in a new job at Wyoming Rehab in Sheridan, Wyoming. When the opportunity arose to join my husband's private practice, I worked for Big Horn Neurology, specializing again with chronic pain and headache.
The nervous system intrigues me and I find it's impact on our lives crucial. I have sought nontraditional treatments to address methods which help to regulate the nervous system. I am specifically trained in CranioSacral Therapy, studying with the Upledger Instititute. I am also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. Somatic Experiencing is a well developed technique which helps to resolve past traumas that become encapsulated into the body over time. Every human has an inner healer and a natural process of correction, however sometimes that process becomes interrupted; the goal of my therapy is to help awaken each individual healer and collaborate with the patient to find the wholeness they desire and deserve.
Cody is our home and I am blessed to be able to raise my wonderful family in such a beautiful and loving environment. I enjoy an active lifestyle with mountain biking, coaching volleyball, Pilates, Nia and Yoga practices. Addressing body, mind and spirit are integral to being a healthy individual. The delight in my life is finding different avenues and expressions in pursing the enhancement off all three areas.
