Occupational Therapy Team
Jessica grew up in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island and completed her Bachelor of Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia. She then moved to Edmonton to complete her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at the University of Alberta.
During her career, she has supported children through her work at non-profit organizations, private practice, and school boards. Her experiences working on multi-disciplinary teams and forming collaborative relationships allow her to truly deliver a family-centred approach to practice.
Jessica's clinical scope of practice includes assessment and intervention around feeding and swallowing, sensory and motor development, visual-motor development, activities of daily living, and challenging behaviours. She strongly believes that therapy should be play-based, individualized and most importantly, fun!
Hi, I’m Colleen! I graduated with my masters in Occupational Therapy in 2013 from the University of Alberta and have diverse experience working with children and adults as both a mental health therapist and occupational therapist. Since becoming a parent, I have developed a special interest in maternal mental health, as well as infant and pediatric feeding.
As a mom to three young children, all of whom had tethered oral tissues and various feeding struggles, I understand how stressful feeding can be. These experiences inspired me to specialize further as a pediatric feeding therapist. My approach to therapy is to come alongside children and their families with comprehensive assessment to understand the ‘why’ behind feeding struggles. Then we can collaborate together to make a plan that is meaningful, functional, and fun.
In addition to my feeding specialization, I am happy to support family mental health, emotional regulation, activities of daily living, sensory integration, and fine/gross motor development.
Outside of work, you’ll find me on outdoor adventures with my family and sipping really good coffee.
I look forward to supporting you and your family!
Hi, my name is Sarah! I am an Occupational Therapist living in Edmonton, AB. I grew up in the Northwest Territories and completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Masters of Science at the University of Alberta.
I began my career and continue to work with a non-profit that supports children with complex needs; this started my passion for creating fun and play-based therapy sessions that are individual to each child and family. My clinical scope of practice includes assessment and intervention in sensory regulation, fine motor & handwriting, visual-motor development, and activities of daily living.
In my spare time you can find me caring for my jungle of plants, exploring with my pup or watching Disney movies!
I currently work with Alberta Therapy Co. Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Sundays.
I can’t wait to meet you!
