I have worked with children from ages 8 months to 20 years old as a pediatric occupational therapist since graduating with honors from OT school in 2014. My focus has been on supporting kids with sensory processing, developmental delays, ASD, ADHD, and executive function challenges via sensory integration and by supporting social-emotional development and self-regulation (utilizing the “DIR Method”). I use play and relationship building to build rapport and keep kids motivated and engaged to maximize our time together. I have worked in outpatient clinics as well as in public (CPS) and charter schools. I am also trained in the SOS approach to feeding therapy and enjoy supporting picky eaters and kids and families with feeding challenges. I love collaborating with the entire family and integrating playing together to reach our goals!
When I’m not playing at work, I love playing with my son, my dog, and traveling with my husband! You’ll often find me running around Chicago on my way to a workout class with Starbucks in hand.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
