well hello there

Spoiler alert - we don’t have any. We just show up every day ready to work really hard for our families. We do however, have a standard of service. From the start, even before we formally identified these patterns, these pillars of service have guided every interaction we have with our community - from therapy sessions in the gym to our volunteer work with Sadie, & everything in between.

What's Our Secret?

We believe inclusion matters, and everyone - no matter what they look like, where they live, what unique qwirks they have, or their financial status - has a seat at our table. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to live a happy, successful, thriving life. 

Imaginary games, roleplaying, & being silly are everyday occurrences around here. All kidding aside, play is the vehicle for engagement, development, connection, communication, & so much more for children. It only makes sense that we play & have fun with our kiddos.

Leave An Open Invitation

Have Fun

Teamwork makes the dream work! As an occupational therapist, it is our job to assist in communicating and educating our community on ways to help children succeed. This community includes teachers, coaches, other medical professionals, community leaders, first responders, & more. 

We aren't afraid to get scrappy & love thinking outside the box when it comes to treatment session and supporting our families. You don't always need the latest & greatest equipment to make an impact. Wether you have the ability to invest in certain equipment/programs or not, we guarantee you will have all the tools you need to support your child.

Work As A Team

Get Creative

Make It Personal

We believe that every child is not only worthy of a personalized treatment plan tailored specifically for their individual needs, but a therapist who is going to take the time to make a personal connection with them. Each of our clients are unique & it is our pleasure to get to know them on a personal level.

We strive to make safe environments where children feel comfortable experimenting with what works for their unique mind body system. Our ultimate goal is to make sure the children we work with feel %100 comfortable being themselves because when they do, curiosity emerges, which is a capstone for growth. 

Inspire Courage & Curiosity
