About Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy focuses on helping people increase independent function and enhance development in all areas of their daily life (e.g., home, work, community). Occupational therapists believe that occupations describe who you are and how you feel about yourself. If you are unable to do the things you want, or need to do, to live and to enjoy your life, then your general well-being may be affected.

Occupational therapists work with people of any age to promote health, prevent disability, and develop or maintain abilities. Occupations can include self-care (i.e. personal care, mobility), leisure (i.e. social activities, sports) and productivity (play, school, employment, homemaking). Occupational therapy provides the skills for the job of living and solves the problems that interfere with people’s ability to do the activities or occupations that are important to them. We help people maximize function and live life to the fullest!
