What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy aims to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health in all the environments where we play, grow, learn, and work. Together with your occupational therapist you will work to find solutions to address the barriers that may stand in the way of your health and wellness goals. Your occupational therapist will listen to your story, ensure that your well-being is the primary concern in all decision-making, and that your privacy and confidentiality are respected.
