"I believe very deeply that therapy should be approached holistically, in a way that truly works to connect with and support the individual and their family."
"We searched for a long time before finally finding Stephanie. How lucky to have found her! Stephanie works with both of my children. She takes her time and is patient, warm and caring. My children both look forward to their sessions with her. Our previous OT experiences were nothing like this. I highly recommend her!”
