Christine graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of New Hampshire where she majored in both Occupational Therapy and Psychology. With nearly 30 years of clinical experience under her belt she has acquired hands on experience with adult in and outpatient rehabilitation services, adults with developmental disabilities, psychiatric services, and home health (VNA). The last 20 years have been dedicated to occupational therapy in the school setting, outpatient pediatrics, and early intervention.
Christine has received additional national certification in Sensory Integration and Praxis testing and treatment (SIPT) through the University of Southern California, as well as DIR/Floortime training. Her treatment philosophy includes approaches from all of her clinical experiences but can best be described as “whole person”, “whole family”, “whole community”.
She believes the “therapeutic relationship” is critical in working with clients and families of all ages. Trust, commitment, and communication are key supports to the treatment plan.
The hands-on creativity of occupational therapy services are inspiring to Christine, as she recognizes and facilitates each client’s potential.
During her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, visits to the ocean, reading, furniture restoration, home improvement, and cooking.
