Undergraduate degree at UCLA, Master's program Exercise Science FAU, Doctorate of Physical Therapy Mount Saint Mary's College. Certified in TRX, Rock Tape, Cupping MFD, Strength & Conditioning cert NSCA, USA Cycling level 3 Coach. Over 15 years experience working with high level athletes in NFL, AVP volleyball, MLS, USA Ski team, professional road/ mountain biking. My background is in Sports Medicine with emphasis on return to sport for athletes, specifically catering to cyclists. I work on sports performance programs for all levels and ages. Certification in Yoga Therapy.
As a life long athlete, I have been treated for many of my own injuries and have seen for myself what works and what doesn't. I started DaraSportsPT after seeing a disparity in the quality of care available. I want to change the current healthcare model; instead working for the patient, towards health & independence, spending more 1 on 1 time for faster results.
I treat not only high level athletes but any person looking to get a comprehensive exercise plan, resolve an injury, or improve their fitness. I consult in the clinic, in home, and via virtual consult. Your time is valuable.
A typical session with me may consist of a variety of treatments including manual therapy/massage, therapeutic exercises, strength, current modalities that improve recovery such as cupping, athletic taping etc.
I am a competitive cyclist as well as high school mountain bike coach. My professional belief is that my job is not merely to treat, but to guide you on your path to healing yourself as quickly as possible.
Please contact me directly with any questions or scheduling inquiries you may have. In-home and virtual appointments also available outside of Oakland location.
