  • What is telehealth Physical Therapy?
    Telehealth Physical Therapy is just like traditional physical therapy, except it is provided over a secure video platform, rather than in person. You get the same high-quality care, but from the comfort of your own home. During your one-on-one video appointment, we will talk about your current problem(s), I will ask you to do a few simple movements to help me assess your problem, and then I'll create an individualized program of exercises and strategies tailored just for you.
  • Don't you need to see me in person for Physical Therapy?
    This is a common concern, but no worries :) Most problems can be taken care of easily via telehealth. The keys to an effective PT experience are a detailed discussion and evaluation to discover the core cause(s) of the problem, customized education to help you learn why it's happening, and individualized exercises to address these findings. Telehealth physical therapy lends itself well to all. However, if at any time I feel your problem requires hands-on treatment, I will let you know immediately and will help you find a qualified PT in your area to see in person.
  • What do I need to get started?
    All you need is an email address, an internet connection, and a device with a microphone and camera that connects to the internet (e.g., smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop computer). It's that simple!
  • Do I need a prescription or referral from my doctor to see you?
    Nope! IL, CA, CO and FL are all "direct access" states for physical therapy. This means that you do not need a prescription or referral to begin care with me. One less hurdle for you to clear on your path to getting better!
  • I'm not tech-savvy; will I be able to do this?
    Yes! Our video partner thera-LINK makes it easy: 1. At the time of our scheduled appointment, click on the "Log In!" button in your email from thera-LINK and log into your account. 2. Click the "Join" button. This will bring you to my virtual waiting room, where you can pay for our session (if applicable) and wait for me to join you. 3. I will join at our appointment time to start our session. You can do this! Questions? Call me at 224-255-7678.
  • How do I make an appointment with you?
    To schedule online, click on any "Book an Appointment" button on the website, or click on the button below. Choose an appointment type from the drop-down menu, and the appointment day and time that works best for you. That's it! If you prefer, you can also call or text me at 224-255-7678, or email me at to schedule.
  • How many appointments will I need?
    While this can vary, depending on the severity and complexity of your problem(s), most patients meet their goals within 5 visits, spread out over 6-8 weeks. Book a free consultation and I can give you my specific recommendations for you and your situation.
  • How long is each appointment?
    Each appointment is a full hour, except for our free 15-minute consultation.
  • Is our physical therapy session private?
    Yes! I use a service called thera-LINK to provide secure, HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing, so you can be assured your treatment is private. In fact, your telehealth treatment is potentially more private than in-person treatment, as there will be no other clients present like there would be in a busy outpatient clinic.
  • What can I expect at my first appointment?
    You can expect to get answers! The goal of our first appointment is to get laser-focused on what your musculoskeletal problems/challenges are and to come up with an effective plan to address them, together. 1. I will be asking you detailed questions to fully understand your symptoms and uncover their potential causes. 2. I will ask you to do some simple movements so I can assess things such as your strength, range of motion, balance, and movement patterns. 3. I will teach you tailor-made exercises and strategies to do at home to get you started on feeling better!
  • What should I wear for my physical therapy session?
    Please wear comfortable clothing which allows you to move freely. And rest assured that despite this being pelvic physical therapy, you will remain fully dressed at all times.
  • How much does each session cost?
    You can find the cost of each telehealth Physical Therapy service at the link below: Our free 15-minute consultation is just that: FREE!
  • Do you accept insurance?
    I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO of Illinois. I am not contracted with any other private insurance or with Medicare. However, I am happy to supply you with an itemized bill for each session to submit to your insurance if you have out-of-network benefits and would like to pursue reimbursement. Using an FSA (flexible spending account) or HSA (health savings account) to pay is also a great way to help make physical therapy more affordable. Finally, you can save money by purchasing a package of visits up front. You can save $100 by purchasing a package of 5 visits💰
  • How do I pay for a session?
    You can conveniently pay for your session by credit card when you log in at our appointment time.
  • Do you see patients in states other than IL, CA, CO and FL?
    Physical therapists must be licensed in the states in which their patients are located, and currently I am able to provide telehealth PT in the states of IL, CA, CO and FL. This means that in order for me to treat you, you must physically be in one of these states. If you do not currently live in IL, CA, CO or FL, please sign up here to join my email list to be the first to know when a new state is added, and to receive up-to-date articles, exercises, and other tips and tricks to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and happy bladder, core, and pelvic floor.
  • I'm having a bladder problem. Do I need to see a urologist, urogynecologist or other physician first?
    Not necessarily. Pelvic physical therapy is the first-line treatment for many bladder problems, such as: ~losing urine when you cough, sneeze or exercise ~rushing to get to the bathroom in time ~going to the bathroom often, "just in case" ~having to empty your bladder more often than every 2-4 hours If you have any of the above complaints, you can start physical therapy right away! However, if you are experiencing bladder pain, or if you have symptoms consistent with a urinary tract infection (such as urinary frequency, painful or burning urination, cloudy urine or bladder pain), be sure to consult with your physician first. She or he will be able to discuss with you whether pelvic physical therapy is right for you. Still not sure? Sign up for a free consultation and we will make sure you get the right care!
  • What is thera-LINK?
    thera-LINK is the HIPAA-compliant online platform that I use to allow us to connect via secure video for our physical therapy sessions.
  • Do you treat problems other than pelvic health issues?
    Absolutely! I am first and foremost a physical therapist, trained to treat any musculoskeletal problem or complaint you may be having. In addition, I have the specialized training needed to treat pelvic health problems.
