Our Approach to Therapy
Pediatrics – Focus on Connection
We use a relationship-based approach that supports motivation from within, rather than “dangling a carrot” to get the results that we want. We focus on enhancing the relationship between you and your child, and guiding you in supporting your child’s development. We strive to build a trusting relationship with you and your child and to maintain that trust. We follow your child’s lead and incorporate their interests into therapy activities because children are most motivated and capable of real learning when they are interested. We use authentic activities such as play and daily routines to help your child carry what they learn and apply it to different real-life situations. Our aim is to meet your child where they are developmentally, building on their strengths and addressing their needs in a way that fosters their confidence.
ADULTS – Focus on Acceptance
We take a pro-neurodiversity stance and recognize that human brains are diverse. Neurodivergent people (autistic, ADHD, gifted, etc.) have unique strengths and ways of thinking that can be a gift. Challenges may be experienced at times, depending on the everyday environment. We can work together to determine your strengths and needs. We aim to tap into your strengths and to ease challenges. Our job is to support you in reaching your self-determined goals and in achieving self-advocacy. We strive to be a resource to you. Therapy goals can be accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on your interests and learning preferences.
