My Advocacy

My Story

I have always had a passion for working with children and decided to major in psychology to understand better the many factors that influence human behavior and development. As an undergrad, I worked with children as a swim instructor and tutor, where I became increasingly interested in child psychopathology and the various treatment approaches available. I am excited to work as a Therapeutic Assistant to further develop my knowledge of childhood development and help children using kindness and empathy.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
