Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a rehabilitation services that strives to enable clients to participate in their meaningful everyday activities. This includes everything from getting dressed in the morning, to playing golf, to having the ability to work. Occupational therapists help their clients achieve their functional goals through exercises, manual therapy, pain relief, and developing adaptive strategies to meet the demands of daily life.

I work in an outpatient clinic where I primarily see clients who have sustained some sort of injury to their arm/hand. I am very passionate about hand to shoulder care and love having the opportunity to relieve people’s pain while enabling them to progress in strength and movement of their arms. The other area that I work most in is post-stroke/neurological therapy. Helping people relearn how to perform their normal activities after a neurological event such as a stroke is something that I find truly rewarding!

Now that I have established myself working as an occupational therapist, I’ve realized that there are far too many people who do not receive the care that they need because of insurance limitations or financial burden. I feel that it is my responsibility to do what I can to help those individuals receive the care they need using a holistic perspective. I am so blessed and excited to have found the Hope Clinic and Care Center as a means for me to accomplish this goal!
