What Clients Are Saying
“Lisa has been instrumental in helping me get through the toddler stage. She gave me helpful guidance about milestones and calmed my fears.
She provided exercises and activities I could do with my little one to encourage physical development, and helped me feel so much more confidant and supported!”
“My preschool aged son was struggling with anxiety and sensory sensitivities. I was out of creative ideas on how to support him and needed help. Lisa walked me through concrete approaches which have proven successful in a short time.
Her ability to quickly understand my concerns and walk through step by step actions was incredibly helpful. She is extremely knowledgeable about how to put occupational therapy into practice and I highly recommend her services.”
“Lisa did an assessment of my 10 month old, who was not yet crawling. She was very kind, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She gave us several exercises and tips to work on at home.
She explained how core strength, feeding skills, and mobility are all connected, and sent a follow up summary of everything we had discussed, which was a very helpful reference. Within a few weeks, my little was crawling and now climbs everywhere! Thank you, Lisa!”
“Lisa’s organization, diligence, creativity and dedication to bettering children’s lives is admirable. I have seen her build strong rapport with children, parents and teachers, and they respond to her efforts.
Her sense of professionalism and commitment to the school community is clearly evident.”
