About Cultivate Pelvic Health and Physical Therapy

Cultivate Pelvic Health and Physical Therapy is a specialty physical therapy practice solely dedicated to addressing pelvic health concerns and preventative pelvic health care for people of all genders.  My treatment approach focuses on empowering clients to cultivate and sustain optimal health through an integrative, compassionate, and whole-person lens. 

 
What makes Cultivate Pelvic Health and Physical Therapy different?
  • Cultivate is a practice designed for the specific needs of clients seeking care for pelvic health conditions.

  • All visits are 60-90 minutes in length with a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner.

  • Assessment and treatment is not limited to one body area or pelvic health diagnosis, so we can assess head to toe and work together to find the "why" behind symptoms.

  • An approach focused on individualized care and building a robust client toolkit means that there are no "cookie cutter" treatments.

Ready Set Go

Meet Dr. Danielle (she/her)

Your Partner in Pelvic Health

My passion for pelvic health and rehabilitation began during graduate school where the specialty spoke to my vision of providing a whole-person and embodied approach to treating symptoms that have an immense impact on quality of life.

I value the role of education to de-stigmatize pelvic health topics, encourage confidence and autonomy, and empower clients to achieve their pelvic health goals.  I am a certified pelvic rehabilitation practitioner, certified in dry needling, and will be a certified prenatal and postpartum corrective exercise specialist at the end of 2024.  

 

Outside of the clinical environment, I am a Lead Teaching Assistant for the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute where I provide education to rehabilitation clinicians as they work towards specialization.  I also teach at the University of Rhode Island Doctor of Physical Therapy program for the Topics in Gender Studies curriculum. 

 

When I am not working with clients or teaching, I can be found hiking outdoors, taking a yoga class, trying a new recipe, or spending time with loved ones and my cat!

What is Pelvic Health Physical Therapy?

Pelvic health physical therapy is a specialization within the physical therapy field requiring advanced and continued training to help individuals with symptoms related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.  At Cultivate Pelvic Health and Physical Therapy, a trauma-informed approach is always prioritized to foster a safe and welcoming environment which allows for optimal healing.

"I have seen Danielle during and after two pregnancies and her skills, expertise, and compassion were integral to my journey. She was able to help improve my pubic symphysis and sciatic pain during pregnancy, and helped me to safely rebuild my core and pelvic floor in the postpartum period. She also educated me on the importance of both strengthening and relaxation of the pelvic floor, and this was enormously helpful as I sought to have a low intervention birth. I always felt comfortable discussing even the most intimate of topics with Danielle and appreciate the way that she puts her patients at ease and seeks to empower us in our understanding of our own body and healthcare. Danielle is a skilled physical therapist and an incredibly kind person. I am so grateful to have been in her care during this phase of my life and cannot recommend her highly enough."
