Finding Your Child's Anchor

& Following Your Child's Arrow

Who I Am

My name is Gina, and I have been a pediatric occupational therapist working with children and their families for 19 years in a variety of settings, including in hospital, community, and early intervention programs. I am also a mom to three school age children with neurodevelopmental differences, who have been my most influential teachers along the way. I am passionate about helping caregivers feel heard regarding their concerns for their child, and equipping them as the most significant force in their child's life to affect change. I am also dedicated to helping children feel safe, stable, and powerful in their bodies, relationships, and environments. I seek to restore connection, joy, and harmony to families when things seem to be spinning out of control. I recognize the importance of intervening as soon as possible in an infant or child's life to identify and overcome challenges before they increase and compound. I also try to catch those children who have been missed or misunderstood, and utilize the principles of neuroplasticity to make powerful and long-lasting changes in the nervous system that will set them up for a lifetime of success and satisfaction.
