Dorian has been working as a pediatric physical therapist for the past 17 years. She graduated from New York Medical College with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy, and has experience working with a large variety of pediatric diagnoses and conditions associated with gross motor delay. Her continuing education credits include, but are not limited to, advanced study in torticollis, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Treatment of the Baby, Sensory Integration and Hypotonia. She has studied with Ramon Cuevas, founder of Cuevas Medek, and is Level II certified in Cuevas Medek Exercise, and with Lois Bly, master instructor in Neuro-Developmental Training. Dorian has worked with children in long term care residential/hospital settings, in schools, at home and in her private office. She has been practicing in the Riverdale area of the Bronx for the past 13 years.
Dorian’s approach to physical therapy treatment for children comes from her own passion for physical and outdoor activity. She holds a Second-Degree Black Belt in Kenshikai Karate, is an avid hiker, skier, runner and cyclist, and she regularly teaches indoor cycling classes in Westchester. She has traveled more than 11,000 miles by bicycle throughout the United States, and hopes to hike the Appalachian Trail from end to end in the coming years. Dorian loves her work, and is devoted to helping children, along with their families, to find their strength and independence in order to live fully, to enjoy the world, and to play!
