ver have a time where you were not feeling quite yourself? Think back to what you were “doing” during that time. Were you doing things that you enjoyed or found meaningful? Were you satisfied with how you were doing the things you needed and wanted to do?

Oftentimes we neglect or fall short on doing these important things when life gets bumpy. 

Most of us have experienced some sort of life transition or disruption that has caused us to feel disoriented or unsettled. Sometimes we’re able to navigate these times like we would a speed bump, other times it’s like scaling Mount Everest - we feel exhausted, stuck, helpless, unprepared. We begin to question everything and we ultimately can’t do or engage in life in a satisfying way. 

So, you might benefit from working with an Occupational Therapist (OT) during life transitions, disruptions, or times when you just can’t do the things you want or need. We emphasize the therapeutic use of activity to help people overcome barriers in their everyday lives and DO what’s most meaningful to them. 

What we DO  (our roles ,routines, activities and relationships) is intertwined with WHO we are - our sense of identity and self.  If you aren’t able to do the things that are important and meaningful to you, then you can’t be the type of person you want to be. 

We believe the path to feeling whole and connected with yourself and others is by helping folks do, engage, and participate in the things that are meaningful to them. 

OT is one of the lesser known health professions, but we have so much to offer especially when life’s twists and turns leave us feeling unable to participate in our lives. An OT can help you get back to doing LIFE.
