Welcome to Therapy Connections

Therapy Connections is a place of comfort and change. It is a place of learning, growth, and support for all that come here. We want to meet your child where they are and lead them to their best self, in a meaningful, challenging, and playful way. We assess areas of difficulty and create a treatment plan to map out a therapeutic process.  


Our primary focus is pediatric occupational therapy. We work closely with a team of experts to support your child and family throughout the therapeutic process. 

About Therapy Connections

Our approach is based on the concept that behavior is communication.  When working with children and families, it is key to begin with listening.  Concerns from the perspective of the caregiver, teacher, and when able, the child, provide invaluable information regarding day to day functioning.  Next, it is necessary to identify the underlying causes of interference through the evaluation process.
 

As a team (child, caregivers, and therapist, etc.), all aspects of your child will be considered to create a plan to meet your child at their present level and direct them toward their best self.  The plan may include direct treatment to address changes to the brain and body, a home program of exercises and strategies for carryover of newly learned skills, and a plethora of take home ideas to calm both child and caregiver(s) across settings.

 

We aim to empower the child and caregivers to use their areas of strength to help overcome challenges.

Stacey’s work with our son has been a blessing.  After many years of trying different types of therapies to help him with difficulties in speech and language development, math, and writing skills, we feel that he is finally making progress.  We have seen improvements not only in academic areas, but both his fine and gross motor skills are improving as well.  On top of that, he is relaxed and “more comfortable in his skin” than ever before.  Stacey has a passion for her work in reflex integrative therapy and here is why: It works!!!
