Perdita Elliott, BA, MOT

Perdita is an empathetic therapist who strives to create client centered rehabilitation plans based on each participant’s interests, passions and individual goals. She has worked in community settings as well as leading clinic-based interdisciplinary pain management programs to enable Veterans to transition to civilian life. Perdita particularly enjoys helping clients who are living with multiple diagnoses, since looking at the whole person and treating the intersection between physical and mental health can lead to strong functional outcomes while having a significant impact on people’s daily lives. She has worked with clients with musculoskeletal/orthopedic injuries, persistent pain, mental health, post cancer, concussion, and mixed diagnoses to both enable engagement in daily activities as well as return to work.

Perdita has a love of competitive horseback riding and her animals including her dog, cat, horse and sheep “Max”. She enjoys re training rescued horses in her spare time.

"“The goal is not to heal and then begin your life; the goal is to embrace healing as a lifelong journey and allow genuine connections to emerge organically along the way.” – Yung Pueblo
