I graduated in 1975 with a masters degree in physical therapy from Stanford University. Marcia and I opened Bellingham Physical Therapy in 1981. This is a great practice and I am very fortunate to work with other very talented therapists.
I volunteer twice a week in the Squalicum High School Training room and have done so since it opened. Prior to this, I assisted at Bellingham High School. I volunteer at Bellingham’s youth soccer tournaments in the summer helping out in the medical services tent. I also help at our local rugby tournaments. It is important to support the community in which we live. I am indeed fortunate to have these opportunities.
In my 40 plus years as a therapist, I direct myself to listening to my clients. My courses of study tend to focus on the whole system and its responses to life (and whatever life throws at you). I study movement based on dynamic stability (Yoga, Tai Chi, Feldenkrais), fascia systems, lymph mobility, joint and neural mobility. I am a proponent of finding the cause not merely treating the symptoms. Recognizing that each of us arrives at our current point, with a variety of experiences which shapes our individual responses, treatment is person specific.
Outside of Bellingham Physical Therapy, which my lovely wife Marcia and I run, my life is filled with reading, camping, grand kids (2) gardening, ambling and enjoying the journey. Often times, we are accompanied by our two grown children (Brittany and Mark) in this journey.
Find your passion and enjoy life. Become involved.
