What is your philosophy of care
As an occupational therapist, I believe that the patient should be viewed from a holistic approach. This should include adapting the task and/or environment to meet the individual person’s needs. I like to have the patient and family members or caregivers actively participate to ensure that the patient’s occupational needs and goals are identified.”

Why Alyssa went into therapy
I love being able to assist individuals in achieving their full potential and maximizing their level of independence and success with the activities that are both meaningful to them, and the ones they perform on a daily basis.”
