Success in Motion Therapy
Owner, OTR/L, CMT
I am available in person in the Success in Motion Therapy clinic (in Minneapolis) or via online conferencing for those farther away. General availability is Tuesday - Friday during the day.
I love knowing what resources are available in the community for my clients and sharing my knowledge in a broad spectrum of areas. I value family life and feel it should be joyful, fun and supportive for all members. Mad2Glad and parent coaching, in general, is another tool to reach the goal of joyful everyday life for those traveling the path of parenting intense-brain children.
- Occupational Therapist
I love supporting families who are doing OT, teaching them ways to incorporate what their children need into their daily lives. I also love working with any parents who want to explore the ways that their habits, styles and ways of communicating affect their children and impact their families. I enjoy people who are curious, open, willing to try new things, evaluate what is and isn’t working in their lives, and who are ready to make the changes that will help transform struggle into joy.
I have been a practicing pediatric OT since 1997, specializing in working with children with Sensory Processing disorders, motor delays and other developmental issues. I am also a certified Massage Therapist with experience using CranioSacral therapy with children and adults with trauma experiences, illness, injury and other difficulties.
I have successfully raised a daughter who is adopted, gifted and intense-brained and who has turned into a very competent and (mostly) pleasant 14 year-old! I am well-versed in and connected into communities working with attachment issues, trauma, gifted brains, mindfulness/meditation, and tweens/teens along with the sensory processing and developmental issues I know professionally. I am glad to be able to help you see the strengths and gifts that your children bring into your family as well as help you learn to cope with the difficulties.
