About Us

We are licensed occupational therapists and craniosacral therapists who provide compassionate care through a gentle, hands-on approach with our pediatric patients. 


Our Difference

Your child is the boss! We gauge the pace of our sessions based on what is most comfortable for your child. We pay attention to their needs and follow their lead.


Our Approach

We are heart centered, come from a place of love, empowerment, and compassion, and practice kindness first. We will help you find a path forward.


Our Facility

It all starts with the warm and welcoming feel of our facility. Our patients feel like they are at home, rather than at the doctor’s office. Our lobby and treatment rooms are colorful and inviting and our sensory room is fun and exciting.

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer families a warm and supportive environment where they can learn about their child’s developmental needs and how to nurture their child’s capacity to succeed through occupational and craniosacral therapy. Our aim is to help children reach their potential by treating the whole child using techniques learned from experience and directed by evidence-based practices.

Our Values

Our philosophy centers on the idea that children learn about their environment and how to exist within their environment by playing and interacting with their surroundings. We believe it is critical to make therapy as fun and motivating as possible.

We are committed to kindness and compassion to keep a child’s progress moving forward toward the place their family would love them to be.

We honor that each child is a member of a family unit where parents, siblings, and extended family each influence the child’s experiences.

We value honesty and creativity and we respect the patients, therapists, partners, and community we serve.

Our Vision

We strive to continually improve our state-of-the-art clinic and to create a practice model that both parents and therapists love. We believe the clinic should be an educational resource to provide the community with direct access to the latest research and developments in pediatric habilitative and rehabilitative services.
