Emilie is enthusiastic about empowering children to utilize their strengths, enhance self-motivation, and overcome difficulties. Children recognize Emilie for her fun and engaging therapy sessions. She understands the best way for children to learn and make gains is through play and meaningful activities.
Emilie is well appreciated not only by children, but also by their carers. She adopts a flexible family-centred approach whereby the unique needs, concerns, and goals of each family are prioritized and tailored to. Her fundamental goal is to improve their quality of life by helping children to overcome developmental challenges and facilitate learning for progressive and sustainable improvement.
Emilie’s therapeutic approach stems from a broad range of experience and education including helping children and adolescents with a wide range of conditions and/or challenges, specifically, those that impact self-care and play skills, relationships with others, as well as performance at school and in physical or leisure activities. She has also helped adults with physical injuries, sensory processing issues, and mental health disorders.
