Diana Gutierrez, Founder

diana-gutierrez-ptIn early 1997, Ms. Gutierrez started a home based Physical Therapy business for children and families who are developmental delayed. Her business quickly spread, when the parents began sharing their experiences and challenges with each other. These families knew that their children had an untapped potential and could flourish if they only had the proper support. They identified the strong need for lifelong services that would help their children realize their unique unfounded potential and live as independently as possible.

In 2001, Ms. Gutierrez opened a small clinic in Whittier, in order to expand and provide additional treatments to clients in Los Angeles County. After expanding her company, Ms. Gutierrez started the DG Therapy Foundation, a nonprofit to help families with special need children who could not afford therapy services or who were without health insurance.
