In-Home Pediatric Occupational Therapy and More!
Free Phone Consultation
Are you curious about your child's development or performance? A free phone consultation will help you determine if your child would benefit from occupational therapy.
A comprehensive assessment is the first step to learn about your child's strengths and challenges. Your chid's ability to fully participate in daily life will be evaluated by looking at his/her gross motor skill, fine motor skill, visual skill and sensory processing skill development. You will receive an in-depth evaluation report with personalized goals tailored to your child's needs.
Individualized Treatment Sessions
Treatment plans are developed based on the measurable goals created during the initial evaluation. Sessions are individualized to best meet your child's needs and interests. Treatment sessions are delivered in your home or child's daycare to ensure a child-friendly, family-centered, play-based, comfortable environment. Parent and caregiver participation is encouraged at every session.

New Mom Support
Occupational therapists (OTs) offer a unique perspective in helping women transition into the role of a mom. By addressing the physical, emotional and psychosocial health during this transformation, OTs can close the gap in the maternal healthcare model by bringing the focus back to mom instead of just baby during the postpartum period. Being a new mom herself, Dana combines her professional identity as a pediatric occupational therapist and experience in motherhood to offer support and coaching to new moms. You do not need to be a current client to schedule education or consultation services. This service is offered in-person or by phone.
