Working together as a team to promote growth and healing

Milestones Occupational Therapy strives to be a local support, resource, educator, and therapeutic tool for families and young children and infants. We work together to determine you and your child’s needs, abilities, and how to address concerns. Parents are considered important team members in this process!

how can milestones help you and your baby?

Occupational therapy’s goal is to help people to be able to engage in everyday occupations, or things we need to do, to the best of his/her abilities. Common examples of occupations for a child/infant may include : Feeding, playing, communicating, exploring/engaging in the environment, sleeping, and more.

I specialize in working with babies for pre/post frenectomy concerns, breast/bottle feeding skills, strength/coordination issues, disorders and head shaping issues such as torticollis and plagiocephaly, motor development, digestion/reflux, healthy cranial nerve function, self-regulation. 

I use hands-on handling/movement and positioning techniques, therapeutic tummy time methods, oral motor skills, and in-depth parent education. I am trained in the TummyTime!™ Method which is a therapeutic approach to movement therapy in many positions to improve health, posture, movement, and connection. Therapeutic use of the TummyTime!™ approach encourages healthy nervous system function and motor development.
