My Areas of Practice

My specialty is hand therapy and upper extremity rehabilitation, from shoulder to fingertips.  I enjoy working with orthopedic injuries, post-surgical as well as cumulative trauma.  I also enjoy working with artists, musicians and athletes to optimize their performance after injury.  I am skilled in the art of custom splint fabrication to assist patients in healthy recovery of upper extremity injuries.  I also provide ADL, cognitive, visual-perceptual and neurorehabilitation for improved patient functioning in daily life.  I believe healing is a team effort and encourage patients to be proactive in the process.

Throughout the past 20 years, I have also shared my occupational therapy/hand therapy skills overseas as well as volunteered my time in community efforts locally.  Previously, I worked as trail staff with Wilderness Inquiry providing outdoor experiences for those of all ability levels.  Currently, I volunteer my time and services with survivors of torture at a local center here in the twin cities.
