Meet the Therapists!
Kathleen has been treating patients as a Physcial Therapist for 35 years. After graduating from Boston University, she worked with a wide variety of patients in multiple settings in Chicago and McHenry County, IL. 12 years ago she moved to the Madison area where she has continued to expand her treatment tool box. Using an eclectic approach which combines treatment techniques from several manual therapy disciplines, she loves to solve a good puzzle and delights in the human body's ability to adapt, compensate, and perform. Kathleen works with her patients to find the root cause of their symptoms, following lines of tension and strain through the body. She has taken courses with Barnes Myofascial Release, Institute of Physical Arts, Barral Institute, and Herman & Wallace.
When she's not in the clinic, Kathleen enjoys cooking up a storm, playing in her yard and garden, wandering the wilderness, and making up amusing new words.
