About Me: With over 20 years of experience in the occupational therapy field, primarily in the area of pediatrics, I have worked in private school settings, as well as in a clinical setting. I have extensive experience in creating and implementing functional IEP goals and objectives, as well as providing parents with training to ensure carry-over of learned skills. I have advanced training and experience in providing torticollis intervention, handwriting, integration of primitive reflexes, vision retraining, and some training in cranial sacral therapy. I also greatly enjoy being a part of the KidSense feeding therapy team. My love for the outdoors and healthy eating spill into my philosophies and beliefs and these values help me to fully support the growth and development of my clients. As a mother of two girls, I understand how difficult it can be to fit therapeutic activities into already busy lives. I work hard to ensure that my suggestions to parents are manageable and functional for the family’s dynamics. As a therapist, I take a holistic approach to treating the child and believe strongly in a cohesive model to ensure carryover and generalization into real life for the ultimate long-term success of my clients.
