Exciting news about a new Clinic space in Providence

I am excited to tell that I will be opening a Floortime Clinic in The Therapy Collaborative Building at 150 Waterman St Ste 6, Providence, RI 02906 in January 2016.

Together with Cristen Sassi, M. Ed. OTR/L I will be providing Floortime therapy in individual and group sessions. We would love to hear from you and help your children to enhance their lives with the help of Floortime.

Please contact me for a consultation and appointments.

Looking forward to hear from you,
