Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy Services

Our occupational therapy team helps individuals of all ages to improve their abilities to perform everyday activities and establish independence by promoting the development of cognitive, sensory, physical, and motor skills. Our therapists help children and adults to not only adapt but also thrive in the environment in their homes, schools, places of work, and communities.

We have four occupational therapists, Andrew Geleynse, Paige Groetken, Alexya Van Ginkel, and Dana Visser who are dedicated professionals wanting to provide quality care to you and your family. They work with patients with a variety of types of therapy including:
