Occupational Therapy

Improve overall function, including mental health, cognitive health, functional capacity and energy optimization.

I was in a horrible car accident a few years ago for which I had sustained a concussion. I knew when I began to slur my words and was unable to create complete sentences, something was terribly wrong. My friends and family urged immediate attention with my physician where I was referred and began treatment. I was assigned an Occupational Therapist at the clinic and we began cognitive repair, physiotherapy, migraine therapy, fears of driving, nightmare treatments, and yoga. The list felt infinite. Every problem that arose they assisted in helping find a solution. I was scared, hurt and devastated upon beginning, but as each session progressed, I felt so hopeful. I began to practice anything that was recommended and slowly but surely things began to improve. It’s been a long, hard journey of rehabilitation mentally as well as physically but I am so grateful this practice exists.

About Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy provides services to support clients having difficulty participating in daily activities (e.g. self-care, household management, leisure, work, and school).

What to Expect

Occupational therapists look at a person’s overall function, including components of mental health, cognitive health, functional capacity and energy optimization.

Your occupational therapist can help teach you strategies to improve cognitive performance, better manage stress, improve sleep and fatigue, live well with a chronic condition, return to work or school, make your home safe and accessible, and engage in relaxation/energy conservation techniques.
