Let’s Make Life Easier!

I specialize in working with Sensory OTs and Sensory Parents.  For OTs , I offer clinical mentorship to sensory therapists in solo-practice. I can help you to be less confused about sensory processing and to become more competent and confident in your sensory practice. Services include 1:1 mentorship, a monthly membership and group coaching program, mentorship for clinics, webinars, and courses.

For sensory parents, I offer 1:1 iLs Home Coaching through integrated listening systems. iLs is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function. The activities are fun and can be customized for all ages and skill levels.

You CAN

“You Can” is a guiding principle in my work. As therapists, we focus on identifying what the client cannot do and why, in order to know what to work on and how. The “You Can” concept takes that negative angle and turns the therapy into being about what a person can do or wants to do rather than about their disability or what they can’t do because of it. It is a strategy and a value… a cheer and a goal… for children and parents.
