Practices In: Plainfield
Patients Seen: All Ages

As an occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­pist as well as a Cer­ti­fied Hand Ther­a­pist (CHT), I enjoy treat­ing patients depend­ing on What Mat­ters to Them,’ rather than what is the mat­ter with them. Cur­rent­ly, pur­su­ing clin­i­cal doc­tor­ate stud­ies to improve the qual­i­ty of evi­dence based care I pro­vide. Regard­less of diag­no­sis and extent of injuries, all treat­ment is val­ue and qual­i­ty based. My approach is root­ed in patient sat­is­fac­tion, as well as the low­est cost. Occu­pa­tion based ther­a­py has one goal, return­ing patients to their pri­or occu­pa­tions and the things they enjoy doing. Every patient is a part of a larg­er pop­u­la­tion, and as a result, patient edu­ca­tion, injury pre­ven­tion and over­all health are inte­gral to the care of my patients.
