"Stacy is amazing at what she does! We first met when I was teaching preschool and she was providing occupational therapy to one of my students. I could tell that her approaches were working with my student and her services were making a difference in that child’s life. She took the time to explain how OT was helping this child, and especially explained the DIR®/Floortime™ model, which I could see was a huge benefit to my student. I used the tools that Stacy taught me to help support this child in the classroom, and it flowed together with what Stacy was doing at home. After meeting Stacy I became interested in OT and decided to pursue a career in it myself. I give Stacy all of the credit for sending me in this direction, and she has been a wonderful mentor ever since! I have been lucky enough to observe Stacy’s work over the past year and her methods are much more beneficial to the families and children that she works with than any other outside OT services I have observed. Stacy provides a loving environment to every child that she works with and approaches OT as a fun, family activity. The children she works with look forward to their time with her and are always excited when she arrives at their door. I highly recommend Stacy to everybody who is looking for a more personal and worthwhile OT experience for his or her child." - Kaitlin K., Pre-School Teacher, Pre-Occupational Therapy Student

"Our third daughter was born at 32 weeks and was diagnosed with severe developmental delays. My daughter worked with various therapists. A few months after her 3rd birthday, she began working with Stacy. The results have been amazing! Stacy did a very thorough evaluation on our daughter and was able to look at her total development and offer holistic therapy. Stacy has shown me how to really connect with our daughter on her level. The interaction that we have been able to achieve has been priceless. Stacy's expertise in her field and love of children are extremely evident and she has been a blessing to our family." - Jodi C.

"Stacy listened carefully as I explained my son’s struggles and she asked me additional questions. Then she made suggestions, and also connected me to some resources that are a good match for him. I greatly appreciated Stacy's compassion and willingness to help our family." - Wendy M.

"My 3 year old son began occupational therapy with Stacy in July 2013. He was uncomfortable on swings, did not enjoy playgrounds and was very tired after doing basic exercises. After just 4 amazing sessions with Stacy, we cannot tear him away from swings, rock climbing walls, obstacle courses, etc! He is a whole new child and so happy to explore new things on his own. We continue therapy with Stacy and see massive improvements each time. My son adores her and can barely sleep the night before when he knows he has "play time" with Miss Stacy. She is one of a kind..a miracle worker in my book. Stacy is very hands on and so gentle yet effective with kids. She has a wonderful way of training the parents too...never intrusive and always very helpful. My husband and I could not be more grateful that our son has Stacy as his occupational therapist. Best one we could ask for!"  - A.M.

"Thank you for everything Stacy! I have witnessed my child exceed his own expectations of himself and develop new self-esteem and potential in a few short months! It was priceless to share that with him...I will forever be grateful to you for your in depth understanding of our individual child! You saw his strengths and needs an started building rapport off the bat!" - Amanda R.
