Hi, I’m Sandra! I am an occupational therapist trained in the USA. I also hold a master’s degree in the Psychology of Health from the UK. Since 2003, I’ve worked in the USA, Australia, France (teaching a pediatric course to OT students) and now Germany. I enjoy meeting families from different cultures and languages and can offer services in English, French, Italian and German.
I have worked in all areas of pediatric occupational therapy, from hospital-based services to community care. This wide range of opportunities has given me the confidence to push outside my professional comfort zone, to adapt and to expand my skills. I am inquisitive and am always looking for the best and latest evidence-based treatment for my patients and their families. I take on a creative, family-oriented approach in my work, and I enjoy new challenges! Seeing children' and parents' excitement and joy as they overcome challenges grows my enthusiasm and commitment to my work.
From the start of my career, I have been involved in animal-assisted therapy and I am happy that my recent training with my dog is allowing me to offer dog-assisted therapy, when appropriate.
My specialties include: sensory integration, sensory regulation, executive functioning, fine motor and visual motor difficulties, social skills, coaching.
I am Belgian and Italian and speak English, French, Italian and German with a few notions in Spanish.
