    Physical Therapist

    I have always been a fan of Grey’s Anatomy, and I like to imagine if Dr. McDreamy were a physical therapist, he would start every day with the quote, “It’s a beautiful day to fix bodies.” I believe that every patient can achieve their best version of themself. I strive to use my expertise in physical therapy to help patients achieve their goals with various techniques, skills, and evidence-based practice. My goal is to make sure every patient feels heard, acknowledged, and motivated to get back to their best self. To become your best self, a person must believe in themself and be active in their recovery. My role is to guide them through that process and give them the necessary tools for a successful restoration. I treat my patients like family and enjoy creating lifelong relationships in the process of their recovery.

    Background in physical therapy:
    – Spinal cord injury rehab
    – Outpatient orthopedic rehab
    – Sports rehab

    I have worked with all types of orthopedic injuries ranging from post-operative care to tendinopathies, back pain, cervicalgia, fractures, postural changes, growth pains, adolescent sports injuries, etc.

    Professional License and Certification:
    Licensed Physical Therapist, State of California
    CPR certified

    Doctorate in Physical Therapy, California State University, Fresno (PT, DPT) Bachelor of Science, General Biology, University of California, San Diego

    Myofascial Decompression (Cupping)
    Blood Flow Restriction Certified (BFRT)

    I enjoy soccer, hiking, swimming, Pilates, traveling, photography, and adventuring with my four-legged child (woof)

    Katelyn Bixler

    Office Manager

    I was born and raised in Southern California before moving to San Francisco in 2015. I graduated from Brandman University with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Preclinical Psychology because I enjoy spending my time making a difference in other people’s lives. I have had prior healthcare administration experience working in addiction medicine. I was drawn to working at Therapydia based on our company mission to reduce surgeries, primary care visits, and opioid usage. My core beliefs of patient care are empathy, knowledge, and integrity. I enjoy working at Therapydia because I get to witness patients achieve their health and wellness goals every day!
