Individual Therapy

We can work together in your home, virtually, or at my clinic space in downtown Beverly.

Babies are always welcome to join.

Using a whole body  and client-centered approach, I can help you confidently and safely return to exercise after pregnancy as well as resolve:

  • Urinary or bowel incontinence

  • Stress incontinence (leaking during exercise or other physical activity)

  • Increased urinary urgency and frequency

  • Pain or discomfort with sex

  • Scar tissue management (from episiotomy, tearing, or cesarean birth)

  • Pelvic organ prolapse symptoms

  • Pubic symphysis, pelvic, low back, tailbone, or sacroiliac (SI) joint pain 

  • Pain and discomfort when caring for a newborn such as with feeding, baby wearing, or completing household tasks

  • Diastasis recti (abdominal separation)

Our pelvic floor muscles are just like any other muscle group in our bodies, and sometimes they can get out of balance.  This is especially common during the process of pregnancy and birth, but it's not something you have to live with just because you had a baby. 

As an occupational therapist, I also take into consideration more than what's going on with your body.

 In therapy sessions we can address:

  • Adjusting to the new habits and routines of having a newborn

  • The mind-body connection and mental health

  • Energy conservation

  • Embedding new habits into activities of daily living (ADLS)

  • Developing a meditation or yoga practice

  • Information on infant development and bonding activities 

  • Self-care
