Description

I provide a safe, inclusive space for children, adolescents, adults and students of all ages. I assist people through crisis situations and difficult moments, and empower them to discover and participate in meaningful daily activities. In particular, I work with those struggling with anxiety, depression/anhedonia, ADHD, sensory sensitivities, executive functioning (e.g., organization, planning, self-regulation). Occupational therapy promotes “skills for the job of life”, and I am passionate about supporting people in their individual therapeutic journeys.
