My Story

I have been working with children my whole life. I have been a tutor and youth mentor since high school. During college, I had the amazing opportunity to work in Boston College’s Infant and Child Cognition Lab as well as take part in the undergraduate Clinical Psychology program. Through these experiences, I found working with children and working in developmental psychology were my passions. I cannot wait to begin my career in this field and see where it takes me.

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.
