Parent Testimonial: Renee has been seeing my son since he was about 18 months old. She is patient, kind, caring but also can “get the job done” and know when he just needs to be pushed a bit more. OT isn’t easy, especially when your child starts working on goals in areas that are a real struggle for them. She makes therapy fun and engaging especially with her fun songs and her bubbly voice. I personally have learned quite a bit from her about ways in which to work with and help my son. She is incredibly approachable and cares about each of her clients. We would recommend Renee to anyone!
