I get it!

As a mom of two children with their own unique needs and challenges, as therapist working with families for over 20 years, and as a neurodiverse individual, I know the many sides of living with and over coming adversities. 

Elizabeth Joy Shaffer, OTD, OTR/L

My passion has always been helping children and their parents overcome challenges and live with more joy. 


Helping children from 1 to 18 years of age increase independence, confidence, and overcome or adapt to obstacles in skill development. Interventions are provided in the child's school, home, or online. Evaluation and treatment integrate various approaches to achieve the goals set by the parent and child. Modalities and techniques that may be used depending on the needs of the child include:

• Ayers Sensory Integration • Therapeutic Exercises
• Play-based interventions
• Brain Gym®
• Rhythmic Movement Training
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
• Mindfulness-based practices
• HeartMath® Techniques
• Life skills training
• Self-regulation training

Supporting parents through mentoring programs, online group workshops, and courses. The primary intension of parent-based interventions is to equip parents with the knowledge and tools to mindfully handle your child's ever-changing emotional, physical, and mental health needs. The second reason for parent interventions is to decrease stress, and increase  resiliency during challenging moments (other potential outcomes may occur). The benefits of parent-based interventions are experienced by both the parent and child. Practices and techniques incorporated into parent-based interventions include;

• Mindfulness
• HeartMath® Techniques
• Self-regulation training
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
• Parent mentoring (Sensory Integration & Behavior)
• Stress & Well-being Assessment
