Hi! I am a pediatric OT with over 20 years of experience serving children in the school system, private clinics, teletherapy and in their homes. I am here to help educate, empower, and embrace your personal situation with your child. My passion is to help meet the needs of parents and caregivers without the constraints of time, space, and insurance limitations. I have years of experience customizing individual plans for children ages birth to 21 with a wide range of special needs. Having worked in a variety of settings, I understand the development of children and how to think out of the box to achieve new skills. I love teaching through play and have a knack for using things already in the environment to create fun, engaging, and therapeutic tasks! Seeing children become more confident and independent is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. In the school setting, I have designed a fine motor box (FMB) especially for kindergarteners. This toolbox focuses on specific skills needed to succeed in the early years of school. The FMB can also be used for preschoolers and even through first grade to help support important development. Check it out in my storefront!
Have a quick chat with us to learn more about our services.
You can ask me general questions about OT, sensory processing, fine and visual motor skills, day to day tips and DIY ideas to try it at home!
Handwriting is still an essential skill for our students! Be sure you are helping them gain the underlying skills needed to be successful in the classroom and beyond!
Welcome! I am available for a one time FREE 20-minute OT consultation for your child. During this time, be prepared to inform me of your child's age and any special pertinent medical information. I am available to guide you with information regarding fine and visual motor development to include grasping, writing, and cutting; shoe tying tips; OR general sensory processing ideas. Following the consultation, I will email you a list of ideas to try with your child at home and will also recommend possible services and how to access those services.
