Founder, Occupational Therapist

Emma has been providing occupational therapy since completing her Master’s program in 2011. In this time she has developed a treatment approach centered around making a child feel comfortable and confident while engaging in therapeutic activities.  She excels at developing therapeutic relationships, communicating with families, adapting activities to suit the child’s needs and providing high quality treatment.

Emma received her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from Duquense University in 2011, where she graduated with honors.  While in school Emma conducted a study to learn about the way therapists develop and sustain international partnerships.  This study taught Emma about respecting each person’s individuality and culture when providing therapy.

Emma is nationally certified through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and is state licensed in Montana.  She has studied Craniosacral Therapy, SOS Approach to Feeding, DIR/Floortime and is certified in Therapeutic Listening.
