“I believe understanding our own and other’s individual profiles is the foundation for connection and relationships.”
Alyssa knows about people’s bodies and sensory systems and how these affect connection and communication. She is an Occupational Therapist who is passionate about DIR Floortime®. Alyssa has completed the Profectum Basic Course in DIR and the Functional Capacities for Development Certificate. She currently receives mentoring by a DIR Floortime® Certified Occupational Therapist. Alyssa’s passion is helping parents understand their own sensory and motor profile and individual differences, as well as their child’s profile, and how these interact together to facilitate the child’s social-emotional, play, behaviour and daily living capacities and development.
Alyssa’s expertise is helping the child to become more aware of and understand their body, the way they move and process information, sensory integration, social-emotional development, and regulation. She believes the family is the expert of the child and seeks to support the family to understand their child’s profile and their own and how they can complement one another to support their child’s development.
Alyssa is not currently taking new clients.
Alyssa’s clinic days are Thursdays and Fridays.
