Occupational Therapist Reg. (Ont.)
Kristina is a registered Occupational Therapist who is passionate about combining her passions for teaching mindful movement, being creative, connecting with nature and working with her guests to empower them to reach their goals! Kristina had the pleasure of completing one of her placements for her Occupational Therapy Master's degree at Nova’s Ark in 2018, and immediately recognized how special this space is. Kristina joined us as a full-time Occupational Therapist in June 2021, and is excited to be working with our incredible guests again. Kristina takes a strengths-based approach to therapy, focusing on meeting our guests where they are at in order to find strategies and interventions that can help them grow their skills, achieve their goals and enjoy new experiences. Occupational therapy looks different for every child; from assisting with therapeutic movement to assessing comfort and safety in mobility devices, to providing strategies to succeed in school and life skills, and working on self-esteem and mindfulness, the possibilities at Nova’s Ark are endless!
