- Sensory Processing,ADHD,Autism,Social Emotional Development,Executive Function
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.
