Occupational Therapy

I am an enthusiastic and passionate pediatric occupational therapist who enjoys working with children of all ages and abilities. I have extensive experience working with children with a variety of developmental delays, fine and gross motor skill deficits, behavior challenges and sensory processing disorders. I believe that the family is an integral part of the therapy process, and that collaboration is key to creating a successful intervention plan.
