Frequently Asked Questions

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapists are registered healthcare providers.  Occupational Therapists are trained to assess and treat physical, cognitive, and mood challenges that impact your ability to do the activities that are important to you. We work with individuals to improve performance and participation in activities such as work, school, recreational activities/hobbies, and self care tasks.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

You can benefit from even 1-2 sessions with an Occupational Therapist. The duration and frequency of treatment varies person to person and will be determined according to your goals and availability for treatment. 

Do I Need a Doctor's Referral for Occupational Therapy?

You do not need a referral to be seen for Occupational Therapy. However, if you have personal health insurance for OT services, your insurance company may request a doctor’s referral to allow you to submit your receipts through your insurance. Always check with your insurance to determine your policy.

Can I Participate in Occupational Therapy if I Haven't Had a Concussion?

In addition to working with patients with a history of concussion, I also have ample experience with patients with migraines/chronic headaches, COVID long haul, mild cognitive impairment, and functional neurological disorder. I also provide remote workplace ergonomic assessments via video or phone call appointment. For any additional concerns, please contact me to inquire as to whether my services are the right fit for you.
