It is my passion to work with children and their families to facilitate the highest level of functioning by utilizing play as a motivator and learning tool, adapting the task demands to meet the child where they are at, formulating play to promote adaptive responses and developmental motor patterns, and promoting the development of skills systematically.
I strive for progress in a functionally relevant way.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Deb. Our son looked forward to each visit with her. Her creative activities were designed to be fun, so he never realized he was doing work. The improvement was dramatic in a short time, and we were impressed by the results. We believe Deb helped our son get caught up and ready for the demands of all-day kindergarten. We are truly grateful for the chance to have worked with Deb, and we highly recommend her.

I learned quickly to trust Deb and her instincts when working with my daughters. The instincts Deb draws upon are based on years of experience and training. Deb is incredibly committed to problem solving based on meeting each child where they are at and figuring out how to move forward with them.
