Our Services

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy help people of all ages participate in their desired occupations. An occupation is a task that people want/need to do and, often times, occupations are activities of daily living. For children, this may include playing, participating in family outings, and going to school. For teens and young adults, occupations may include self care tasks, community ambulation, and more. Our occupational therapists prioritize "whole person" care, keeping the client's interests and goals at the forefront of each session. Occupational therapy addresses many goals such as:

  • Motor planning 

  • Balance, proprioception, and coordination

  • Core strengthening 

  • Sensory integration

  • Emotional regulation

  • Direction following
