Accepting Patients:

"My purpose is to improve the daily function of all my patients and help them stay active, safe and independent in all aspects of life."


I am a general physical therapist who treats many injuries and conditions, including spine pain and pain from accidents, arthritis and falls. I really enjoy working with the OHSU rehabilitation team to help patients with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, strokes and other conditions. I especially enjoy working with people who are not as active as they once were and trying to bring back the grace and comfort to feel strong and safe again.

My family life includes working outdoors with my wife and dogs, and I really look forward to doing things with my new son (to be born in 2010). I enjoy strength training, weight lifting, biking and any outdoor activity you can think of.
