I am a Brazilian/Canadian licensed physiotherapist (physical therapist), educator and author, working and living in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. I have been in practice for over 12 years and have been 10 years soly dedicated to pelvic health. My approach is holistic in nature, and accompanied by the concept that healing comes from unconditional support and understanding . Addressing all components that can affect health such as physical, emotional or social, is very important to me.
I am caring, dedicated and an active listener, and believe in collaborative work, making my clients active participants of their treatment plan. Empowering individulas with knowledge and concepts that can help them achieve their goals, and providing them with a safe and trusting environment, are my believes for optimizing results. I have a passion for people and my goal is to make people's live easier, happier and functional. Enhancing pelvic health, through addressing global health is my goal.
Sharing pelvic health knowledge to the public and health professionals has been my passion since the begining of my carrer. I have been the spokesperson for prostate cancer meetings, peers and medical meetings and symposiums, and am constantly creating opportunities to educate the public and health professionals about pelvic health physiotherapy.
