Valerie van Woudenberg
PT, MSc. PT, CAFCI
Valerie is a Physiotherapist and owner of Thrive Physiotherapy. Valerie believes that in order to take care of yourself, a holistic approach to treatment is required. She does this by looking at the whole person and assessing the biology, psychology and social elements that surround a person. Each element creates a unique dimension to the individual and affects how we function and respond to pain.
Valerie focuses on helping people who desire to stay mobile and independent and have been let down by previous physiotherapy treatments, doctors or other treatments. She believes all active adults should have the confidence in knowing that their body can stand up to any task and stay mobile without the worrying of lingering injuries slowing them down.
Valerie completed her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at Brock University and went on to Queen’s University for her Master’s of Physical Therapy. She has completed numerous courses following her schooling, including acupuncture and pelvic health to name a few.
When Valerie is not working or spending time with her family, you can find her outdoors spending time in nature, painting or going for a long walk.
