Mentoring Program

For therapists looking for a mentor to help enhance their clinical skills, several opportunities are available.

Manual Therapy Study Group

I lead a manual therapy study group every 2-3 months that discusses a wide range of manual therapy topics. A variety of different practitioners – including physical therapists, massage therapists, and physicians – of all levels of experience participate in this group discussion.

Individual Mentoring Session

These sessions will enable manual therapists to enhance various aspects of their clinical skill set, including:

  • Improve their application of specific treatment techniques.

  • Develop a deeper understanding of a specific or general treatment philosophy.

  • Consult about difficult patients – with or without the patients present. Joint treatment sessions are encouraged if the patient attends the session.

Small Group Mentoring Package

These 4 sessions of 5 hours each will give each participant a comprehensive overview of all aspects of being a manual therapist. This program will be open to 4-6 students. This program will begin in 2020 so please contact me about your interest and for details as they emerge.

  • Session 1: Assessment of a New Patient – Medical History, Scan Tests, and Formation of a Treatment Plan.

  • Session 2: Treatment Principles – Musculoskeletal Focus

  • Session 3: Treatment Principles – Visceral-Autonomic Emphasis

  • Session 4: Case Studies

20 CEU Hours for NCBTMB and the Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners will be requested.

*A $400 deposit will be needed to register and a $200 payment will be expected prior to each session.
