About our doctor
Kristine has been an occupational therapy provider in the Dallas area for over 5 years; primarily in the outpatient setting for pre- and post-surgery and chronic pain management.
She is a self-proclaimed nerd who enjoys spending her time researching how to better meet her client's needs and advocating for therapy services for all. After completing her bachelor’s degree in psychology, she later learned about occupational therapy and found a passion in caring for the mental and physical components of her clients. She has spent an extensive amount of time researching how the body responds to pain and has success with treatment of pain neuroscience education. Additionally, she became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) through Norton with the application of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT).
Treatments with an occupational therapist include a variety of components that may include: activities of daily living (ADL) training, work simulation, joint protection, assistive device use, pain management, balance training, education, desensitization, stretching, strengthening, endurance training, Kinesio tape, ultrasound, electrostimulation, manual assisted stretching, and others. She also received training in Dolphin Neurostimulation (MPS therapy) that utilizes concentrated DC microcurrent impulses to specific points to relax muscles, calm the nervous system, reduce pain and reduce scar tissue.
Outside of the clinic, Kristine enjoys spending time with her husband and senior cat and dog. When the weather is cooler, she loves to go for a walk or hike at local nature trails. She is also a very creative individual and enjoys crafts of all varieties.
