We are so excited to introduce our newest team member to you! Stephanie Elmhurst, COTA/L, joined our team over the summer, and has completed our training program and mentorship and is now working with several of our precious children!
Stephanie has been practicing Occupational Therapy for 6 years in a variety of settings, coming full circle back to private pediatric practice where she has found her home at Sense ABLE Brain. She was first exposed to O.T. 14 years ago as a parent, and then through her work as a teaching assistant at her children’s Montessori School. The school offered and encouraged Occupational Therapy for students to enable them to overcome educational, social and daily life challenges with many interventions integrated into the classroom settings. Through these experiences, Stephanie was inspired to return to school to become a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant/Licensed (COTA/L). Her goal is to meet her clients needs in a fun and compassionate way while understanding and honoring each child’s unique strengths, challenges and situations. She also recognizes the importance of providing support and education the children’s families, teachers and others involved in their care. She is especially sensitive to clients with anxiety and sensory processing challenges.
Stephanie has 16 year old twins who are the light off her life. Three cats and a bearded dragon completed their family. In addition to spending quality time and having fun with her kids and close friends, Stephanie also enjoys art, creative expression of all forms, the beach, yoga and gardening. She grew up in Reno, NV and enjoys traveling out west with her children to spend time with family. As a Christian, she is passionate about sharing God’s love!
Stephanie still has some openings in her schedule and she would love the opportunity to work with you and your child! Call our office at 813-803-3470 to schedule an appointment!
