Private Practice Info

Private Practice Name: Meaningful Life Occupational Therapy
Website: http://meaningfullifeot.com
Years in Practice: more than 30 years

I am passionate about facilitating people with, or at risk of developing chronic pain and associated health issues, return to meaningful activities in their lives including work. With the goal of functional reactivation, my treatment approach considers biological, psychological and social aspects of the client's health, and utilizes practical OT strategies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Coaching for Return to Work. A collaborative approach is taken with the client and others involved in their care to ensure treatment is coordinated and directed by the client's values and functional goals.

I have extensive work experience and continuing education in the fields of chronic pain, anxiety and depression management. I am interested in working with people at risk of developing disability and dependence, and intervening early to facilitate a change in perspective to one of self-reliance and engagement in meaningful activities.

Meaningful Life Occupational Therapy services are funded via Employers, Extended Health, Long-term Disability, Veterans Affairs Canada, and are available to private clients. They include: pain neuroscience education, self-management skills training, behavioural activation, insomnia management, ergonomic recommendations, ADL equipment prescription, work accommodations, and gradual return to work planning.
