I created this blog in 2013 to share my creative work and my client’s stories. After some time, I made the difficult decision to leaving my job and starting my occupational therapy (OT) business.
As an occupational therapist, I take a creative approach to my work. I value an individualized treatment process determined by a client’s needs. I begin by recognizing a person’s strengths and losses to collaborate with the person to set goals. Taking a gentle and holistic approach, we work together to address the losses and take steps forward.
My clinical experience includes assessing and treating children with autism and adults with brain injuries. I provide treatments in client’s homes and their communities. My educational background includes receiving my M.Sc. in Occupational Therapy and a B.A.Sc. in Child Studies.
The clinical area of practice that I am most passionate about is Mindfulness-based Biofeedback and Mindfulness-based Expressive Art Therapy. These holistic treatment modalities combine science, spirituality and creative expression. These forms of integrative treatment help a person to process traumatic experiences in a safe space. Here, my client can express themselves and begin to create a new identity; from fragmented to a meaningful whole. The growth and changes that can happen for clients who accept these treatment modalities are remarkable.
A little about my company. Mindful Occupational Therapist Services is a company that values integrity and client-centred services. My company provides occupational therapy services to help you re-engage in important and meaningful activities. Many daily activities become challenging after a car accident, concussion, brain injury or traumatic experiences. Occupational therapy services can help you to recover so you can feel confident to carry out your daily activities and be yourself again.
