Resiliency arises when we live with meaning
I chose to work within the regulated health profession of Occupational Therapy (OT) because of its focus on getting people back into MEANINGFUL activities. For what is a life without purpose?
What I love most about being an OT is that it allows me to work holistically - working with the physical body, the energy body, the mind and the spirit of compassion, connection and community.
I love working as an OT and base all my work on the 3 Pillars of Client-Centred Care:
1) Scientific Evidence - The data gathered from good quality research such as meta-analyses of randomized control trials
2) Clinical Evidence - The data I gather from the clinical experiences of myself & my colleagues and
3) Client Evidence - The data every client collects from their own unique experience
I'm registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario and a member of the Ontario Society of Occupational Therapists. A number of insurance companies do cover OT services so do check with your own provider.
