Pediatric Occupational Therapist

Allie Burns



I am a licensed occupational therapist with experience in providing OT services in various settings, including schools, outpatient care, early intervention, and Telehealth. I am passionate about assisting families in their natural environments and firmly believe in the power of play as a tool for promoting learning and development. I rely heavily on child-led therapy principles to establish connections and support each child in reaching their full potential.

I have received advanced training in feeding therapy, emphasizing the parent-child connection, along with other approaches to make the mealtime experience more enjoyable for everyone involved.

My primary focus is on delivering high-quality care by identifying and building upon your child's strengths to foster confidence and growth for both you and your child.

Family Story

“We cannot thank Allie enough! She took the time to really get to know our son, find out what he was passionate about and use those interests to engage with him during sessions and help him learn. He has made great progress during our time with Allie and we are so thankful for how easy she has made it for us to implement strategies at home.“
