we see the full-picture of your child
COMPREHENSIVE MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CARE UNDER ONE ROOF
We're educators and caregivers at heart, which means we're constantly working on new ways we can support your child. We know your family's needs are diverse, and your care plan needs to be able to roll with the punches. That's why we're committed to offering a variety of modalities that help us address obstacles from multiple angles and treat the WHOLE child's physical, emotional, and mental being, not just an isolated issue. We see each patient as a complex puzzle who deserves dynamic, skillful, comprehensive care.

Maureen made a huge difference in our kids' lives, and not only tackled the symptoms that led us to seek OT services (below-grade level writing and fine motor skills) but looked holistically at our children. She taught them problem solving skills, patience, how to express their frustration and perseverance. As a parent, I learned a lot of new strategies from watching her interact with my kids during her sessions. To top it off, our kids loved her--she quickly formed a connection and made the sessions fun and joyful. I highly recommend her services.
