The Values That Drive My Practice
Participation in Life
Everyone deserves to live life to the fullest, as defined by the individual.
What is meaningful to clients and their significant others is the priority.
These drive the therapeutic process
Clients make their own decisions about what is best for them.
Rapport and trust with my clients are priorities.
Clients, their significant others, and I are equal partners throughout the therapy process. Clients and I walk paths together for a period of time.
Performing meaningful and valued occupations (daily life activities in which people engage) improves health.
For the best results, it’s important for clients to work on improvement of occupations in the actual environments in which they will be performed. Therefore, I travel to the clients’ locations.
Person, Environment, Occupation (PEO)
In order for clients to improve in their performance of occupations, the physical, cognitive, sensory, and psychosocial factors need to be considered related to the person, the environment, and the occupation.
Often necessary based on medical conditions, disability, traumatic experiences, cognitive changes, learning styles, and/or attention issues.
Habits & Routines
Establishing or re-establishing these are often important for living life to the fullest
