As an orthopedic manual therapist, Lizanne sees people with myriad musculo-skeletal-neural issues, and since 2005 she has specialized in women’s health and the pelvic floor, treating both women and men using a broad integrative approach.  She particularly enjoys working with the ante and post-partum mama and those with hard to treat pelvic pain.  Additionally, Lizanne holds an M.A. in Somatic Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies.  The somatic approach encourages patients to explore a level of body awareness that is often missing in the Western medical model, and it grounds her philosophy of treating people as dynamic, multi-system beings, all with unique concerns and enormous potential to heal.  Lizanne currently runs her practice out of P.O.S.T~Wellness By Design in Petaluma, CA.
