Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy Services

Occupations are the things we want to do, have to do, or are expected to do. Occupation can be thought of as how a person occupies or spends their time. Occupational therapy is a client centred and collaborative approach to challenges that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them or that support their health. The interaction between a person, their environment, and occupation is where occupational therapy happens. Occupational therapists help adapt, modify or make small changes in each area to enable people, families or communities to do, be, belong, or become to overcome life’s challenges.

Occupational therapy can support people who experience:

  • Chronic pain management
  • Chronic illness support
  • Concussion (energy conservation, return to play/ work)
  • Mental Health and Addiction
  • Autism 
  • ADHD
  • Those who want to build resilience and occupational balance in their lives.
