"Thank you, Katie, for showing me how to increase my strength in my body and create more stamina and flexibility."
"...What I appreciated so much was the creativity with exercises to help me reach my goals in healing... very encouraging when things were not easy."
"I started working with Katie about 6 weeks ago. Prior to that, I had been seeing an orthopedic surgeon for about a year. He had stated that I had bone on bone arthritis and I would eventually have to have surgery. This surgery would be the complete rebuilding of my feet and I would be out 6 months for each foot. I was very defeated and felt little hope until I was referred to Katie. With her guidance and my due diligence by doing the homework, my feet are doing very well. They are not 100% but pretty confident that I will not have to have surgery. She is very good at what she does and I highly recommend her."
IF THESE STATEMENTS SOUND LIKE YOU
You will benefit from movement coaching.
Do you believe low back pain to be normal?
Do you believe you inherited knee, hip, back pain from your parents?
It's not their fault.
Do you blame your bunions on your Mom?
It's not her fault.
"I had shin splints while running cross-country in school. Katie gave me different exercises to stretch and strengthen my lower legs. She also worked on my stride to prevent the injury from happening again. I am back to running - pain free after only a few weeks! Thanks Katie!"
WHAT IS A FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT?
Through extensive training, Katie is able to analyze and identify various dysfunctional movement patterns that are the root of your pain. This includes head to toe assessment.
Once we find them, Katie will coach you on how to correct these patterns through various exercises and simple modifications made through your day. She will teach you how bunions form, why hip, knee, and back pain is not a product of genetics, and how our entire posture effects everything we do.
The goal: Optimize Movement Efficiency and decrease pain.

Not only will you save time on travel by meeting virtually, I will provide you an exercise and movement routine created specifically for you. Most movements will be worked into your day. You will have access to ME in between sessions with questions and concerns. With a background in Physical Therapy, Personal Training, Movement Training and Ayurveda, Katie can blend the perfect routine to encompass both Mind and Body.
After a free initial consult, you can book a 75 minute Virtual Movement Assessment with me.
This will guide us with a movement, exercise, and lifestyle plan that I will email to you. I strive to educate clients on our findings and their effect on your pain and activities. We will plan for 1 hour follow up sessions as necessary. My goal is to give you the tools required to gain independence and not require extensive follow up visits.
