I was raised on a Dairy farm in Ridgefield, Wa and graduated as a Spudder in 1987.  I went on to Clark College to play one year of volleyball and then to UPS to pursue my Master of Physical Therapy degree.  I am proud of my 2 grown Children Darby and Alex who are successful and live here locally.
I am married to Bryan Shull and currently reside in Vancouver, WA. My time treating patients is shared between Ridgefield Physical Therapy and Balanced Physical Therapy which I co-own with Kahn Khabra and Josh Laughlin.  I also co-own Battle Ground Physical Therapy with Shannon Schram.  My practice serves a wide variety of patients with some of my specialty pertaining to Male and Female Pelvic Floor.  I assess and treat pelvic pain, digestion issues, bowel and bladder dysfunction and post operative scar tissue or tissue damage such as diastasis.  As much as possible I spend time with family including my grand daughter, running, camping, hiking, cooking and volunteering.  I look forward to every opportunity to help my patients learn to help themselves.

jodi-tree-5-13-16I’m married and a mother of four active young adult children. I enjoy many forms of exercise such as dance, Pilates, hiking and bicycling. My family and I moved here from the mid-west and have been an integral part of Balanced Physical Therapy since January 2003. I also work part time with injury prevention at Frito Lay. I’ve been practicing Physical Therapy for over 30 years and I have a broad range of experience and advanced training in several areas: At one end of the spectrum; I can determine if corrective orthotics are needed and fit them; on the other end I’m confident of being able to help those with TMJ dysfunction. Most recently I became certified in Myokinesthetics which is a method to quickly and easily reset the body to alleviate (and eliminate) pain, restore range of motion and improve posture.
My three main goals with any treatment are evaluate thoroughly; equip the patient with “tools” to recover and progress even after discharge; and problem solve the best methods for a safe return to work, life, and recreational activities.

I grew up in Dayton, Ohio and earned my undergraduate degrees from Ohio State University before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2005.  I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Pacific University in 2016.  I reside in Portland, Oregon with my husband, and in my free time I love to train for triathlons, travel, and try out new restaurants.I enjoy all aspects of orthopedic physical therapy, working across the age spectrum, with a focus on women’s and pelvic floor health.  I work with my patients as a team to find the best solutions for getting them back to their normal lives.  I love to educate others about the lesser-known areas that physical therapists can treat, like vertigo and balance problems.  I am a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the PT Association of Washington (PTWA).

I grew up in a small town in Los Angeles​,​ California and recently moved to Ridgefield, Washington to be closer to my family. I went to PTA school in Boise, Idaho and was there for two years before I returned to California. During my first year following graduation, I worked in Torrance, C​alifornia​ specializing in knee pain. I then moved to a busy outpatient orthopedic practice where I also taught balance, Pilates and lower body rehab classes for an additional year before moving to the PNW.

During my free time I enjoy being outdoors and going on hikes with my dog. Currently I am completing my certification with APPI Pilates. Through trying various methods of Pilates and instructors, I have found many useful tools to correct posture and strengthen muscles that often get overlooked. I am looking forward utilizing my skills and training to help patients with pelvic pain and incontinence issues.

Hello, I am Diane McKinley, the massage therapist at Balanced Physical Therapy. I grew up in Corona del Mar CA where I was a ballet protege,avid bodysurfer and tomboy. I danced with the Newport Beach Ballet Co., and the U.C.L.A. Dance Company for the four years I was pursuing my B.F.A. After moving to Seattle where I met my husband Paul, I studied massage at the Brian Utting School of Massage. I have been honored to take advanced deep tissue training with Catherin Maxwell ND and Robert Haase, Pregnancy Massage with Carole Osbourne-Sheets and Reiki with Jack Blackburn. Having been a massage therapist for 20 years I find inspiration in seeing what you need by watching you walk and listening to your concerns. I provide relaxation, deep tissue, sports & pregnancy massage. Watching you heal brings me joy.

When not working I enjoy bird watching, mushroom hunting, beach combing, acoustical guitar and photography.
