FEEDING THERAPY

Mealtime is typically a fun occupation- trying new flavors, bonding with the ones we love, and visiting new restaurants provide very meaningful experiences. However, when a motor or sensory challenge arises during mealtime, it can be an exhausting and sometimes scary struggle.  I am trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding, Beckman Oral Motor Protocol and TalkTools and have years of clinical experience treating a wide variety of people who have difficulty with feeding.  After completing a feeding evaluation and assessment, we may address the following areas: 


  • ​oral motor skill development​

  • sensory processing

  • self-regulation 

  • picky eating

  • utensil use

  • social skills

This therapy all takes place at home, where you eat! Additionally, I provide hands-on coaching and demonstration, in addition to cutlery and tool recommendations, to help you progress faster. I can work with all ages. 

At this time, I am not able to work with anyone experiencing dysphagia due to the laws and regulations surrounding this practice area in California.
