Meet Dr. Rebecca Patton
I'm a pelvic physical therapist supporting patients of all genders and identities with a trauma-informed and inclusive approach. After working several years in a rushed and protocol-based healthcare system, I observed care that was not prioritizing individuals and contributing to traumatic healthcare experiences. I recognized that there was an opportunity and need for better care that was personalized, safe, and healing. I started Patton Pelvic Health with a vision and mission to bring that personalized and safe care to life. I strive to destigmatize sexual health and pelvic health concerns across the gender and sexual identity spectrum. Everyone should have the chance to feel secure in managing their bowel and bladder health and have pain-free sex. I'm passionate about creating a space to empower patients in their medical care. Working with me you can expect a warm, calm, and open space where your concerns will be heard.

A bit about Patton Pelvic Health
You are welcome here as you are. Providing a place where you are accepted and receive personalized care is critical. Navigating a heteronormative healthcare system can be exhausting and traumatizing. LGBTQ+ clients experience different traumas that can affect healing of pelvic pain. I offer treatments for post-op chest surgery, pre and post gender affirmation surgery, and management of pelvic pain. I am humbled to be trusted with your healthcare needs.
Trauma Informed Care
Giving you time to process symptoms and opportunities to re-connect with your body. Getting active consent before and during treatment is a priority as YOU are in charge of your care. I aim to provide strategies to manage trauma responses and allow you to advocate for your needs during each session.
