After first hand dealing with the struggles that come with searching for qualified therapists within the area, we knew that there were other parents and children that were enduring the same situation as us. Our company was created to address the unique difficulties found within pediatrics and to provide hope to families that feel helpless after other attempts have failed or not provided the benefit sought.  We wanted to make the process easier for families and to include parents as much as possible in the evaluation, creation, development process and ongoing support for the children we provide service to. We found this to be very challenging with other companies and believe that it is critical for the success of our children in order for them to flourish and overcome the difficulties they face.

Rebecca has over 16 years working exclusively with pediatrics within the Central Florida community.  She grew up in Fort Lauderdale, FL and received her Masters in Occupational Therapy from Florida International University.  She enjoys spending time with her family, especially the joys of raising three amazing children.  

Rebecca believes the best advice to parents looking at occupational therapy as an option for their child is to take little steps at a time and not get overwhelmed.  Focusing on small incremental progress is key in making an impact in the child's life even if it seems impossible!  She loves working with children because she believes all children are unique and seeing each one develop and progress in their own way and with the "just right" therapeutic approach, is a gift to witness.

Christanna Blommel -  Occupational Therapist Assistant

Over the last 14 years, I have gained experience working with children of all abilities in many different roles as a: caregiver, personal care attendant, Aunt, preschool teacher’s aide, tutor, and mentor. I have worked in my current role as an occupational therapist assistant for 2.5 years.

My educational background includes an Associate of Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant from Remington College in Lake Mary, FL, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The College of Saint Scholastica in Duluth, MN. I plan to further my education towards a Master of Occupational Therapy beginning in the fall of 2021 at The University of Saint Augustine, FL.

The main reason I enjoy the field of pediatrics is that children give me energy! The creative imaginations of children never cease to amaze and inspire me. I truly believe that children are our future’s greatest resource.
