Wendy has been an answer to prayers! After my diagnosis of Ehler’s Danlos-Hypermobile Disorder, I struggled to find a quality team of people to help me through my medical journey. Finding a Phsical Therapist like Wendy who understands the physical complications that result from my condition has been a game changer. She is full of information, willing to seek out and find solutions and is very resposive and communicative. So grateful to have her as a part of my medical team!
— Stephanie V - Special Ed teacher

I began seeing Wendy shortly after I was diagnosed with hEDS and she has been an extremely helpful resource and supportive part of my medical team. I like that she not only provided me with exercises, but also took the time to explain why they are important and how different parts of my body are connected. Wendy has also helped me work towards my own personal goals, such as being able to return to group work out classes, by providing me with modifications. I would highly recommend Wendy as a PT for anyone struggling with EDS!
— Lauren L. - young adult
“Wendy has been an all-star addition to my medical team! She takes the time getting to know you and your body in order to create an individualized treatment plan that works for your EDS. After six months of working with her I was able to begin graduate school after deferring for two years due to EDS. Since starting school, Wendy has worked with me to manage my symptoms, keeping me on the road to a happy and healthy life- both in and out of the classroom!”
— Rachel F. - graduate student at Pepperdine studying social entrepreneurship and hoping to work toward advocacy and support for people with EDS
As soon as I found out I have EDS, I started seeing Wendy. She’s not only helpful for relief and daily comfort, but also a wealth of EDS knowledge.
— Margaret E. - mother of five
I found Wendy’s practice when I could not find a doctor to help with my presumed EDS. In a short time, she has taught me ways to strengthen and use my body that have already helped greatly. Wendy knows her field well, and she is always working hard to learn more to serve her clients. I’m very grateful I found her!
— Jill R. - Pastor at Resolution Church
It’s such a relief to be working with Wendy, a physical therapist that knows and understands Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome! She really knows how to gently build strength and meet my individual needs.

"wendy did a fantastic job"

"When my son was 2 months old he was diagnosed with Torticollis and Plagiocephaly. Wendy did a fantastic job working with him early and giving me tips to stretch him throughout the week that he ended up not needing a helmet. He's now a happy healthy active toddler."

"wendy was pivotal in getting my daughter the support and needed therapy"

“Wendy has a strong commitment and dedication to working with her patients and their families. She listened to me about my concerns regarding my daughter's gross motor skills when no one else in our family seemed to be concerned. She was the first person to notice her ankles were pronating and likely causing some issues for her. Wendy was pivotal in getting my daughter the support and needed therapy to get her stronger and become confident while doing so.  Wendy also provided us with a home program that we could manage even during our busy daily routines.  Thanks to Wendy my daughter is now running, jumping, climbing up and down the stairs with pride while having FUN moving her body! Thank you Wendy!"

"Wendy is the best physical therapist we have ever have, and we have been through a lot of them: Early Intervention, school, private therapy, hospitals. My son has progressed so much since we started seeing her two years ago. Wendy’s experience speaks volumes, and even when my son doesn’t want to work hard, he does the work because he truly loves her. She is like family to us."

"My daughters looked forward to their physical therapy with wendy”

My daughters always looked forward to their physical therapy sessions with Wendy!  She went above and beyond to create unique, custom therapy routines to meet their individual needs.  Even when my daughter requested to learn a dance routine one day, Wendy found a way to harness that enthusiasm and incorporate it into the therapy session.  Wendy makes every session fun and beneficial, and does a wonderful job connecting with the parents and family!
