Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapy


Professional Statement

My goal is to help people with MS create positive, healthy habits that will enhance their independence and help them stay active. Very often, small lifestyle changes open doors to significant changes in well-being. My areas of focus include helping patients maintain arm function, improve posture and maximize independence with daily activities. I create individualized exercise programs for strengthening, coordination and flexibility, and help patients with adaptive equipment to optimize their functioning. I am also the MS Center’s adventure guide. In this role, I help patients participate in recreational activities despite disabilities. These activities are highly individualized to match each patient’s personal interests, lifestyle and health circumstances.
