Denise is a Bay Area and California native. She earned a B.S. in Psychology from St. Mary's College of Moraga, California and then received her Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine, Florida in 1996. Treating general orthopedic dysfunctions led her to develop an interest in the spine and especially the pelvic/SI region. Through continuing education in these specialty areas, she has developed her own unique and effective approach to treating chronic pelvic pain and incontinence. Denise has a distinct passion for helping couples with unconsummated marriage and sexual pain issues. Working with post-traumatic stress patients she facilitates recovery through the mind-body connection. Techniques in visceral manipulation are commonly used. Among other organizations, she is an active member of the Women's Health and Orthopedic Sections of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) since 1994. Denise resides in Los Gatos with her husband Chris and her beautiful daughter Colette. With her supportive family and her passion for helping others, Denise continually increases her knowledge about chronic pain. There are many misconceptions about body/pelvic pain that drive her to develop more effective forms of treatment to support her patients’ emotional and physical needs. During treatment Denise asks patients to describe their “body story” which often identifies somato emotional connections between pain and life experiences. She works closely with Jane Colacicco; CranioSacral Therapist to facilitate this process (www.janecola.com).
