No two patients or treatment options are alike, just as no two physical therapists are alike. However, these specialists below all embody several similar traits that make them successful.

Compassionate

Showing compassion when interacting with patients is an important part of being a great physical therapist. Our kiddos may be struggling with their exercises or meeting their next goal, but our encouraging, kind words and therapy expertise will help guide them and push them forward.

Resourceful

As we said earlier, no two patients are alike. Therefore, no two treatment plans can be alike. To be a great physical therapy clinic, we must be able to customize each treatment plan for each patient.

Durable

I received my doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Puget Sound in 2005. I went into the field of PT after recovering from head injuries and seeing the benefit of PT as a patient. I realized that my love for exercise and spending time with children could become a career in PT. I was formally trained in the TheraSuit Method in 2006. My specialty areas/interests include intensives, pediatrics, neurological rehab, myofascial release, and reflex integration. On November 30th 2009, I was blessed to be a part of the opening of CIT. I was the first PT to treat kiddos, along with being the clinic manager since we opened. I am amazed at how fast we grew after opening! I am super passionate about being a PT and very driven to help kiddos meet their goals.
