Belinda has sought opportunities to advance her skills to provide high quality of care. Most notably, she completed the Evidence in Motion Residency Program, with a focus on evidence-based practice, manual therapy techniques, medical screening and radiology. As a credentialed Clinical Instructor, Belinda has worked with multiple physical therapy students over the years, teaching skills related to the field of orthopedic physical therapy.
Belinda has a wide variety of experience, as an orthopedic physical therapist both in the United States and in Germany. While in the United States, she has worked as a physical therapist in multiple orthopedic settings, facilitating patients return to their prior level of function after an injury or surgery by utilizing manual therapy skills and implementing comprehensive goal-oriented treatment programs. In Germany, she worked directly with active duty military personnel prior to their separation from the service.
Belinda’s treatment philosophy is centered on helping people reach their maximum potential through listening actively, determining the root cause of each chief complaint, utilizing appropriate manual and therapeutic techniques, and educating and empowering patients to maintain health and wellness. She is interested in the therapeutic benefits of yoga and plans to learn more about how to incorporate certain yoga principles into her practice.
Belinda is originally from Tennessee, and after living in Germany for three years, she relocated with her family to the Washington, DC area. While in Europe, she was able to take advantage of wonderful travel opportunities. Her favorite experiences include hiking across Northern Scotland, dogsledding in Finland and visiting historical sites across Europe with her husband Chad. Since moving back to the states, Belinda and Chad have enjoyed earning Junior Ranger badges at National Parks with their daughter Cora.
