Her work experience and continuing education have been concentrated in treating a wide variety of pediatric diagnoses including children with Sensory Integration Dysfunction/Sensory Processing Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, neurological disorders, developmental delay, genetic disorders, and orthopedic disorders. She holds a special passion for working with families impacted by Sensory Processing Challenges and has focused much of her professional training in that specialty.
She is trained in the Astronaut Training Program- designed to integrate the senses of vision, hearing and movement. She is also a certified provider for Therapeutic Listening Programs and Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) – designed to address sensory modulation, auditory sensitivity, auditory processing, vestibular dysfunction, and coordination. She has additional specialty trainings in “The Alert Program for Self-Regulation,” Interactive Metronome (IM), and Physical Agent Modalities.
Her passion for both children and her career help create a fun, yet challenging clinical environment for kids that promotes success and improvement in the everyday life of a child.
