Garner Pelvic Health & Dr. Garner provides gender affirming care in the specialty fields of pelvic physical therapy, integrative (mindfulness, yoga) and lifestyle medicine, and wellness. Everyone has a pelvis and needs access to pelvic physical therapy, especially those going through gender affirming care or that have specific pelvic or sexual issues related to their gender identity.
Dr. Garner has specialized training in this area and offers trauma-informed, integrative care that is person-centered. Dr. Garner’s clinic is also one of the few clinics in the United States with advanced training in rehabilitative ultrasound imaging (she also serves as a mentor and trainer to therapists nationwide), which allows her to provide high level pelvic healthcare, especially important for those who may not be able to tolerate internal work or that have complex issues due to trauma in and/or outside the healthcare system.
Finally, Dr. Garner is one of the few therapists in the country that provides vocal to pelvic floor care, because voice issues can be life altering for someone transitioning. She works with people who need to find a new voice that matches their new appearance. The voice is a biomarker for pelvic health and sexual function, but working with the voice also improves confidence, mood regulation, self-compassion and acceptance, and digestive issues.
