Christine is a firm believer that we should all be living life to the fullest! In order to achieve that, she believes in creating a fun, comfortable and accepting environment where a child’s confidence can shine through. Her energetic therapy sessions are play-based to encourage silliness and confidence through motor and sensory play.

Christine has experience working with children from birth to 18 years old in both home and clinic settings. Christine began her career in early intervention where she learned the importance of collaboration between families and clinicians. She also learned the importance of making sessions fun, and playful to help a child fully engage with their environment. In addition, Christine has experience working in a pediatric outpatient setting, where she learned more about the use of swings and other sensory tools in therapy sessions.
