Her Approach

Patricia’s mission is to guide patients toward a pain free existence as they seek a lifestyle of optimal health and physical wellbeing. She believes in the intimate connection of mind and body and a holistic and collaborative approach to symptoms, health and prevention.


A former professional dancer, Patricia’s background in dance provides her with a unique knowledge of the body and movement. She is passionate about prevention and her treatment caters specifically to each patient’s needs. Her specialized skills, intuitive nature, commitment to higher education and positive energy help her patients avoid surgery and return to prior or higher levels of function and activity.


As a mother of three, Patricia also understands the demands of everyday life and aims to help her patients achieve a balance in their body. She has had all 3 births (natural vaginal birth without medication, C-section and VBAC). She connects with her perinatal patients to help them have a pain free pregnancy and embrace this time in their life with confidence and happiness.
