Our occupational therapists currently serve children in the home, daycare and center through the First Steps program or private pay as applicable. They provide diagnostic and therapeutic services related to children’s needs in the areas of fine motor development, hand-writing, motor planning skills, bilateral and visual coordination and sensory integration. We have specialized equipment to address concerns in these areas.

I have experience working with pediatric clients in a variety of settings, including outpatient and school-based. I have completed continuing education in feeding disorders, neurodevelopment treatment, sensory integration and processing, and self regulation, including the zones of regulation program. I am also an integrated listening system certified provider. I love working closely with families and the entire treatment team to help my clients! I also love riding horses, and have enjoyed incorporating hippo therapy into my treatment repertoire. I also enjoy hiking with my 2 dogs, practicing yoga and being outdoors! I am excited and passionate about continuing my occupational therapy career in pediatrics and helping kids and their families.
