ABOUT ME

I have known I wanted to be an occupational therapist ever since I was a little girl. I was born premature with significant medical needs. I believe the services that I received helped to get me where I am today. I know first hand the difference that therapists make in a child's life.

Shortly after graduating, I realized there is so much to learn about the field of occupational therapy. I saw a significant need for support for parents, teachers, and students. It truly helps to have someone to guide and support you on your journey.

On a personal note, I live with my husband and our two puppies. I hope I am fortunate to have children of my own someday soon. I enjoy activities such as hiking, swimming, wine tasting, painting, and traveling. My dream is to provide support to families and students from anywhere. 

MY APPROACH

Client Centered. Collaborative. Strengths Based. Empowerment

I use the DIR/Floortime framework to guide my intervention. I know first hand that working with children is not a one size fits all approach. Each child is unique and brings their own strengths and skills that can develop with time. I believe that the parent is the expert on their own child. My goal is to help parents understand their child’s needs so that they feel confident.
