Let’s work together!
I have chosen to work in an environment that allows us (you and me in a therapeutic relationship) to have time. I never compromise quality for time and give my clients realistic challenges that accommodate their lifestyle. I strive for honest communication and relationship, so that you are empowered to work on achieving your personal health transformation.

MY NAME IS Alicia
I first started exercising and moving when I was in preschool ballet and tap classes. Discouraged because I could never get my chubby little leg and foot up on the barre, I gave up on formal dance and I moved on to playing piano! Truth is, I never really stopped dancing. You’ve gotta dance like nobody’s watching, right?
Anyway, as a teenager, I found solace in movement and exercise as a way to recover from the stresses of life. While hiking in the woods of rural Virginia and strengthening my body while watching Jane Fonda videos (don’t judge me!), I learned to gain a sense of focus and mindfulness of what was happening in my body. This led to a lifelong interest in how awareness of the body can help others to improve their own lives, feel better and remain resilient and strong for the long haul.
After studying biochemistry and psychology at North Carolina State University, I continued to study physical therapy at Duke University. As a lifelong learner, I have plunged into the study of Pilates, yoga therapy, pelvic health, chronic pain, trauma, etc. in order to satisfy this insatiable curiosity regarding the body and how we work.
My purpose is to help others (you) find hope to overcome pain and limitations that life may eventually bring. There is hope and a way out, many times without medication or surgery! This is good news. If you would like some help on the journey, I am available to share all that I have learned with you.
