Make an Appointment

An occupational therapist would be able to offer guidance by:

  • Optimizing day-to-day habits and routines
  • Creating short-term & long-term goals and maintaining accountability
  • Focusing on solutions by using activity analysis to recognize dysfunctional patterns
  • Developing pragmatic skills to create balance
  • Collecting data — sleep, time use
  • Focusing on individual strengths, untapped potential, and then link to action
  • Evaluating holistically — focusing on many dimensions of wellness

A counselor, on the other hand, focuses their conversation on ways to:

  • Recover from past traumas and cope with distress
  • Explore past relationships to improve self-concept and self-esteem
  • Work through underlying psychological issues that affect ability to function
  • Guiding people towards flexibility and responsiveness
  • Emotional integration and regulation
  • Awareness of the past in order to promote insight and healing

What we have in common:

  • Individualized and client-centered
  • Scientifically driven, evidence-based
  • Defined goals

Remember, you are not limited to one therapy or the other. You may utilize both services to address the same problem as the different frameworks and methodologies of each profession can complement each other.

Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you check in more than 10 minutes past your appointment time, you may be asked to reschedule.
