I offer pediatric Occupational Therapy (OT) services to children and their families who are challenged by the expectations of their everyday routines at home, school and the community. My evaluations are geared toward helping families determine if there are any delays in motor, sensory or social-emotional development that are preventing a child from reaching his or her full potential. Therapy goals and services are family centered and aim to meet the needs of the whole family. Parent education, coaching and participation is an important part of this type of intervention. I take a deep dive with parents to discover a child's unique regulation profile. We use this profile to better understand what constricts and supports a child's ability to access learning and to make progress in all areas of development. Through viewing their child and themselves through a sensory sense, parents can be equipped with the tools they need to support their child after occupational therapy is done. This family centered approach to intervention which supports sensory processing, relationships and regulation can set the roots from which your child will grow and blossom.
I have practiced as a pediatric occupational therapist since I received my Master’s Degree from Boston University in 2000. My professional experiences include working in Early Intervention, working with the deaf/blind student population at Perkin’s School for the Blind in Boston, and in two private sensory clinics (most recently the STAR Institute, Denver). I am Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) certified. I also hold an expert training leader certification in the DIR /Floortime Model through the Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning (ICDL) I divide my time treating children and their families and teaching the level 1 mentorship program as faculty of the STAR Institute.
About the clinic:
Nine-hundred square feet of dedicated therapeutic space, located in the Stapleton Neighborhood. This space affords families enough room to enjoy in the process of intervention but is cozy enough to feel like home.
