Embrace the Child® “makes the connection” with your child and your family. Working together gives a true-to-life understanding of child/family needs. Within your family, we help you to “make the connection” by guiding you to learn how to understand your child’s unique developmental profile and participate in playful, joyful ways, engaging your child and working on challenges within daily family life across settings.

She is a dynamic speaker and author sharing on Sensory Processing, DIR® and her own Family-Centered Therapy Model™. Through presentations, trainings and her writings, she empowers parents and encourages fellow occupational therapists and multi-disciplinary professionals to make a strong impact through family-centered care.

Embrace the Child® “makes the connection” by serving your family with great care, dedication, and commitment. Ample amount of time is allotted with each child and family. Treatment times are tailored to your child’s and family needs and attention is always placed on your priorities. We are continually working toward learning many ways to provide the most up-to-date evidenced-based treatment to best support your child and lead your family to succeed.
Embrace the Child® “makes the connection” by offering continuity across home, school, clinic, and community. Continuity is encouraged within the family system. Not only parents, but also siblings, and grandparents and significant others are encouraged to be part of regular treatment. We will gladly communicate and work in concert with or as an adjunct to other professionals (e.g. therapists, educators, and doctors) involved in your child’s care. Using the Family-Centered Therapy Model™ and DIR® model, we complement early intervention service providers and give continuity of treatment to your child from infancy throughout early childhood past the ageof 3. Particularly during early developmental years after Early Intervention Services have concluded, caregivers(s) and the child continue to benefit from strong family support, guidance, and family-centered care which supplement Early Childhood Education Professionals. Last, at Embrace the Child® we will navigate community resources, promote parent advocacy, and recommend learning materials to help you to best understand your child.
