About Dana

Pediatric physical therapist Morrisville


As a pediatric physical therapist and healthcare professional, I’ve been able to use my gifts to work with people of every age and stage in life—from neonatal and pediatrics to geriatrics. My passion and expertise, though, is pediatric physical therapy, with a focus on early intervention programs and therapies. I’m one of the first therapists in NC to be trained in Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI). This revolutionary treatment method, which taps into the brain’s neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways, has already had life-changing results for many of my patients (and their families). I am trained and certified in DMI, and I offer intensive therapy, working with patients two times per day.

As a pediatric physical therapist, I am also certified in Total Motion Release or TMR Tots. I apply this methodology for various mobility and physiological issues, from newborns with Torticollis to older kiddos with cerebral palsy. A gentle stretching technique that doesn’t cause pain, TMR produces profound results very quickly. These new techniques have allowed my patients to continue to grow and realize their own success and ability while providing significant results in their mobility.

I’ve been practicing Physical Therapy for 22 years, having earned my Master’s of Physical Therapy from the University of North Carolina. While finishing up my program, I had the privilege of having my thesis, “Physical Therapy in Preschool Classrooms: Successful Integration of Therapy into Classroom Routines,” published by the American Physical Therapy Association (Pediatric Therapy). I received my undergraduate degree from Auburn University. I now enjoy bringing my knowledge and gifts as a pediatric physical therapist to Morrisville, Cary, and Raleigh, NC.

What is DMI?

Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI) is relatively new but combines cutting-edge research and methodologies to develop motor milestones. This approach focuses on provoking repetitive specific motor responses from a child, drawing on brain neuroplasticity to facilitate new neural pathways and connections.
