OT Consultation & 1:1 Support for Parents
🔥Get your burning questions answered directly by an OT.🔥
🌟Topics we can discuss:
While this list is not exhaustive, these are some of the common topics that I enjoy supporting parents through.
Sensory Processing & Emotional Regulation
I can teach you all about the specific sensory systems impacted in the tasks and activities your child struggles with. I'll explain the concepts in an easy to understand way so that you better understand your child.
I can also teach you about the connection that sensory regulation has with emotional regulation (aka why those meltdowns happen) and some ways you can support your child.
Fine Motor & Gross Motor
I can teach you all about motor milestones, how they develop, what's "expected" for a certain age and how to best support your child where they are at so they can start making progress without feeling overwhelmed. This includes things like: handwriting, pencil grasp, playground motor skills, etc.
I'll give you the words and tools to advocate for your child in the school setting by providing you suggestions for supports in the classroom and ways to seek further support from teachers or other service providers.
GET YOUR TIME BACK
Yes, there's a ton of free information out there on the internet, but how do you know if it's reliable? How do you know if it applies to your child?

I scheduled a call with Laura to discuss my 3.5yr old + her frequent meltdowns. While not sensory related, they do impact our daily life quite a lot. Laura was able to give me some more tools in dealing with my daughter during + after her meltdowns that I’ve begun implementing + hope will help with consistent use. Laura was so sweet + informative + I’m so glad I reached out to her!

In our sessions Laura offered a goldmine of information and concrete, action steps to help us with our key issues around transitions, meltdowns, etc. I came away from two 45 minute sessions with enough information to fill a book, and it was uniquely tailored to our situation and my daughters unique temperament.
She took the time to compile notes ahead of time based on everything I shared via email about our situation/challenges so our sessions were focused, efficient and chock full of information.
She’s also so calm warm and relatable, it was like talking with a close friend who also happens to be incredibly wise and gifted in offering helpful solutions. You can tell from talking with her that she really wants to see everyone win and be on the same team- kids and parents/caregivers alike.
The ideas she shared just felt very empowering for all concerned.
I now have definitive action steps to take TODAY for challenges that have been an issue in our family for years. I wish I had talked with her sooner! Looking forward to another session.
Hey! I'm Laura
I'm your (virtual) neighborhood OT mom. Not the Pinterest-worthy, #blessed kind of mom with a perfect lifestyle and pristine playroom.
I'm the average, lazy mom who just happens to be an OT and know a lot about childhood development and sensory processing.
I say lazy because my favorite way to play with my daughter involves me laying on a couch sending her on scavenger hunts or me playing the very sick (in a coma) patient while she does a doctor checkup.
You might be thinking… why are you throwing yourself under the bus, aren't you supposed to be telling me why I should hire you?
YES! If you want a relatable, down to Earth, extremely knowledgable OT who only gives you suggestions that are doable with your given schedule and resources at hand- I'm your girl.
I may be a lazy MOM but I am quite a productive OT and parent coach (some might say workaholic, but I digress)
Did I mention I have my own preschooler with anxiety and SPD? So when I say "I get it", I REALLY GET IT.
I get the exhaustion and the desperation. I get the isolation.
With my empathy as a mom in the trenches just like you, + my valuable experience and knowledge as an Occupational Therapist, I can help you get a clear understanding of what's going on in that tiny human brain and how you can start working with them instead of against them.

Working with Laura was so empowering. She gave really great suggestions I hadn’t thought of and helped me feel Heard and supported in what can feel like an isolating journey. After my call with Laura, I created some social stories, implemented some new emotional regulation tools with my son and built up our “heavy work” toolbox (and learned to keep it simple!!) and we are seeing improvement! It was really nice to speak with a professional who GETS IT and doesn’t make you feel like you have to defend your choices or over explain your experiences. Even after our call she made herself available for a follow up question I had which I really appreciated!
Wondering what my availability looks like in the next 30 days?
