“While it may sound cliché, my mission is to help people. I get great satisfaction out of watching people get their lives and their bodies back on track. I like my patients to feel empowered rather than victimized by their bodies. The more a person understands their problem, the more they are able to take charge and heal. I have worked in settings where therapists see a high volume of patients, and didn’t feel that I was able to really provide people with what they needed in such a limited amount of time. At Avanti, all visits are 50-60 minutes, which gives me the time to listen to my patients, re-assess every visit, and provide the most effective treatment possible. I am not satisfied with anything less than your full recovery.”
Julie takes an integrative approach to the science of movement, with the intent of returning people to a state of optimal function. She is committed to taking her practice a giant leap beyond traditional PT practices. Each patient receives the benefit of undivided attention to the intricacies of each physical problem, in order to determine the most effective treatment approach. She takes to time to get to the source of a person’s problem in order to facilitate optimal recovery, as well as prevention of future problems.
Julie has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in areas including Manual therapy, Craniosacral therapy, sports medicine, balance and fall prevention, Trigger point dry needling, and exercise for brain change for people with Parkinson’s Disease. She has advanced certification through the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School.
