Simplifying how you move through life
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Credentialed Clinical Instructor, and Writer
Integrating the pieces
I LOVE movement. I especially love working with the movement of the heart, mind, and soul together with the body. As a doctor of physical therapy, I focus not just on physical movement; I also teach a unique perspective of how to move through life with purpose and direction. I untangle underlying physical, mental, and emotional “restrictions.” By focusing on the individual and encouraging the integration of mind and body, I champion a different kind of Healthcare.
It challenges my heart, mind, body and soul.

What is Possible
Hope and better health are always possible.
I connect the dots: your health is multi-faceted, so there is always something that can be improved. And anyone who says otherwise is probably selling you something, most likely in the form of a pill.

My Storybook Journal
In J. Barrie Shepherd’s book, Faces at the Manger, he offers that perhaps one of the reasons the holy family was visited by a ragtag group of shepherds, and not more important sophisticated guests, was because the shepherds were the only ones who listened and...
“Do you serve dinner?” My last patient of the day enjoyed her evaluation experience at the clinic so much she was reluctant to leave. "I had to ask. I mean, this is so great." THAT is what you want in a clinic setting. Recently, I've been invited into a lively...
Having practiced physical therapy now for 32 years, with a Bachelor of Science and a doctorate of Physical Therapy under my belt, one would think I know a thing or two about what it means to be a good patient. But recently, after having been hospitalized for nearly 5...
It’s been a moment. A whole lot of moments. I am writing to let you know I am still here😊. My writing focus has changed slightly, as this very active, very healthy PT has become the patient. And great news! My advice on health and healing works well for me too. You...
This week I have created a guest blog entry at https://well-woman-blog.com . The topic is the effects of stress and anxiety on our experience of pain. Visit Gena's site to read my latest blog and to even read some of Gena's other blog entries. Be well.
There are good reasons medical professionals don’t treat those closest to them. Ego, relational dynamics, and just deep caring can obscure the objectivity of both provider and loved one, especially the more that is at stake. As you have learned by now, I care very...
With the holidays past, and a new year rolling along, thoughts on gratitude are not really in season. Still, my thoughts linger there, especially since I had a recent little “aha” moment: I learned it is impossible to be frustrated while simultaneously being grateful....
Sitting on the living room sofa, I heard the crash in the kitchen. Something was now in a million little pieces. “That didn’t sound good,” I teased my husband. “I’m sorry, and it’s irreparable too,” John said remorsefully. And he would know, as he is the master of...
At the end of the evening, I asked John “So I ‘pontificate'?”, repeating back the word he had used with our friends earlier in the evening. He described a recent conversation to them that we'd had with some folks, who had shared their opinions on vaccinations and the...
Life Success Stories
Karen teaches as she heals! She gives you a whole new outlook on your health, is personable, takes her time in getting to know your health issues. She is a brilliant.
Karen is the best physical therapist I have found. She provided a deeper level of personalized care than I had experienced elsewhere while also providing me the education/tools to continue my progress at home. The fine details and assistance from Karen made all the difference for me. Truly a game changer.
I love her holistic approach. She not only took the time to listen and ask questions to discover exactly what was going on with my shoulder issues, but also took the time to get to know what was going on in my life, and connected the two.
Karen has a healing gift! She listens compassionately, and identified the very root of the problem.
As an outdoor athlete, I can attest to her dedication to her practice, genuine commitment to seeing her patients strong and healthy. She is thoughtful, attentive, communicative, and the definition of a compassionate expert. I cannot recommend her enough.
Karen is hands down amazing. Very professional, kind, and intelligent. She knows exactly what she’s doing and someone I would highly recommend.
Karen has a much deeper approach to treatment; she teaches about how pain works in my brain, as well as how to integrate the mind with the body: changing unhealthy eating, sleeping, and thinking habits in my life. I very highly recommend her to everybody who wants to live an all around healthier life with less pain!
