I am very serious about providing effective activity-based therapy for mental and physical optimum health for patients & participants of all ages.
I am even more serious about ensuring that the activity-based therapy we provide at Texas RT is engaging and rewarding for each client, patient & participant.
I enjoy working with individuals of all ages and abilities. Therapy treatment interventions for each patient/participant are specialized and built around their interests and goals. Whether we are outside on a nature walk, inside a pool engaging in aquatic therapy, using virtual reality headsets, or in the community exploring a museum/ bowling alley/ university campus; my role as a recreational and aquatic therapist is to create the conditions for each patient to thrive as we work together towards reaching individual treatment goals.
It was my dream to be a therapist since I was in high school. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with patients & participants every day. I am the proud owner of this RT practice and an even prouder father of my four children.
