My Story

Ever since I was young, I have been actively involved in the disability community and working with children with special needs. This has been my passion and becoming an occupational therapist has allowed me to utilize my creative, passionate nature to help children participate and thrive in their everyday lives! It was been the greatest joy to support our children and watch them gain independence in their self-care skills, play skills, social interactions, and more!

My Eyas Landing

The thing I most enjoy about working at Eyas Landing is interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. We utilize a comprehensive approach to support our clients and their families, which is seen by the carryover of skills across disciplines and sessions.   

My Professional Goals

  1. I believe that education and experience are essential to becoming a wellrounded therapy professional and my goal is to continue to teach clinical students the skills needed to become great occupational therapists!  
  2. My goal is to create parent education for families of children 0-3 years that is easily accessible and easily understandable. Providing parents with the information that they want and need to know about healthy development is crucial to providing effective early intervention services.  

Eyas Landing is a therapy clinic with a mission to provide evidence-based and family-centered therapy services for children, adolescents, and their families. The primary goal is to deliver relationship-based interventions within the most natural environments and to empower families to reach their full potential. To achieve this goal, our highly educated, compassionate staff dedicates time and expertise to create experiences that maximize therapeutic outcomes. The strength, determination, and perseverance of our clients are evident as they succeed in therapy, and ultimately in their daily lives.

Eyas Landing offers a wide range of comprehensive services including Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, ABA Therapy, Social Work, Family Therapy, and Neuropsych testing. Services are provided throughout the Chicagoland area via Telehealth, In-Home, and in our state of the art clinic.
