Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do. Occupational therapists enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.
Occupational therapists have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. Interventions include helping individuals participate fully in school/work, social situations, developing or regaining skills, and providing supports to make life more meaningful.
Minds In Motion
Minds in Motion is a small private occupational therapy clinic founded in 2015 by Jessica Sibley M.S., OTR/L. We are dedicated to supporting the goals set forth by both the individual and the family. We focus on skills relating, but not limited too: body awareness, strength, coordination, gross motor, fine motor, visual motor, bilateral integration, crossing midline, finding hobbies and interests, engaging in groups and communicating with one another. In September of 2019 Minds in Motion joined forces with Bryana Williams M.S., CCC-SLP of The Growing Place and Kelsey Aughey of OutWord and opened a multipurpose office space. Together, they offer groups and summer programs for teens and young adults. At Minds in Motion we believe everyone has the capacity and desire to learn and grow. Our only mission is to support our clients in bringing forth their full potential.
