Hello! My name is Dr. Sierra, as my youngest patients call me, and I am a licensed physical therapist. I focus on the pediatric population, and all their awesomeness! My areas of specialty include general lifespan/baby development, and a wide variety of neurological, genetic, and movement disorders.
I offer both wellness services and skilled physical therapy services via telehealth. If you are interested in a group/community atmosphere, there are workshops to cover relevant and vital topics for specific age ranges. If you're more of a solo learner, I understand! There are one-on-one consultations so you can get all the answers you need to your specific situation.
My goal is to support both the child and his/her family along the journey of life. I observe the needs of the child and family and provide a comprehensive approach that targets both physical and emotional development. To do this, I collaborate closely with the whole family to establish and achieve functional goals that are important to the child and the family.
In addition to being a pediatric physical therapist, I am also a mother. I have experienced the joys and the challenges that parenthood presents, and all of the worry and hope along the way. Strong support systems are vital to the overall development of children. Becoming a mother has taught me many things, but primarily the fact that most parents would do anything to ensure the well-being of their children. Each of our children are the most precious gift. Every parent has dreams for their child before they are even born. I want to help fulfill dreams that may seem impossible, especially after receiving a difficult diagnosis, condition, or delay. Small steps of progress lead to wonderful achievements!
