Undergraduate degree at UCLA, Master's degree program in Exercise Science FAU, Doctorate of Physical Therapy Mount Saint Mary's College. Certified in TRX, Rock Tape, Cupping MFD, Strengh and Conditioning cert with NSCA, USA Cycling level 3 Coach. Over 10 years experience working with high level athletes from NFL, AVP volleyball, MLS and women's professional soccer, professional road and mountain biking teams. 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.
As a life long athlete, I have personally been treated for many orthopedic injuries and have seen for myself what works and what doesn't. I started DaraSportsPT after seeing a disparity in the quality of treatments available. I want to change the current healthcare model, instead working for the patient, towards health and independence. Waste less time and money on medical visits, imaging, medications, as well as empower the athlete within all of us.
I treat not only with high level athletes but any person looking to get a comprehensive treatment plan, resolve an orthopedic injury, or improve their fitness. I consult in the clinic, in home, and via virtual consult. Your time is valuable, especially if training for sports and events.
A typical session with me may consist of a variety of treatments including manual therapy hands-on skills, therapeutic exercises, strength and conditioning, current modalities that improve recovery such as cupping, athletic taping to name a few.
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.
