Our mission for over 40 years has been to maximize a child’s potential across all areas of development. We provide quality therapeutic care for children of all ages, from preschool through high school.
We believe the most effective way to nurture and encourage a child’s development is to educate those directly involved in the child’s daily care.
We are able to help both parents and school staff manage the problem behaviors where and when they arise.
Our well rounded team provides quality care that extends the child’s whole day. Our clinic staff specialize in working with students and families that are struggling at home.
Working with parents directly empowers them in the parental role making them more confident and understanding of their child’s needs. Often the transition home is one of the most difficult for children to negotiate. This contributes to undue stress on the families and can create back pressure on the schools themselves.
Parents may displace this frustration on the school team causing friction and stress on school staff.
By educating parents, teachers, and paraprofessionals, we can create therapeutic opportunities for students throughout the day, which will facilitate the goals of direct services.
We continually offer our therapists progressive educational opportunities to ensure the highest quality of care.
Passing that education on to school professionals instills a sense of empowerment and maximizes their role as educators.
This approach ensures that the whole child is being considered, going beyond pockets of performance and enhances the child’s overall potential.
We’re dedicated and passionate about our what we do.
Meet our leadership team.
Todd graduated from the University of Hartford in 1997 with a Degree in Occupational Therapy, and a minor in Psychology. Areas of particular interest include: integrating manual therapies with BioEnergetic treatments and lifestyle changes to promote health and wellness; treating infants and toddlers to remediate structural and energetic imbalances created by the birthing process and developmental stress.
Supporting people suffering from chronic pain and related emotional issues; and exploring nutrition’s role as it relates to internal states of balance and quality of life are all a passion.
Todd believes in the benefits of touch, and views the therapeutic process as a means of releasing the inherent corrective capabilities within each patient. He views the physical body as an integrated vessel in which emotion, spirit and life energy produce our individual experience. Imbalance in any area can lead us away from wellness and health.
