Why Occupational ​Therapy?

Occupational Therapy focuses on the

things a person wants and needs to do in their daily ​life. Occupational Therapists take a functional, ​observational, and holistic look at those activities ​and determine what exactly the underlying cause is ​that is keeping you from performing those activities. ​From there our skilled occupational therapists are ​able to help your child develop or regain those skills ​through therapeutic and meaningful approaches.

For littles an occupation includes play, sleep, feeding, ​regulation, dressing, movement, social participation, ​school engagement and so much more.

Occupational Therapists are skilled in looking at all ​areas of one's life (sensory, social, environment, ​physical, values, spiritual, supports, abilities) in order ​to increase one's participation in daily activities.

Hey there

Sara Gregoire M.S., OTR/L CBS

My name is Sara Gregoire, founder of Empowered Occupational ​Therapy LLC. I graduated from the University of North Dakota with ​my Master's in Occupational Therapy. With experience in ​pediatrics throughout the school system, outpatient setting, and ​early intervention I have worked with a variety of children and ​diagnosis. Over the years, I have gained a love for working with ​littles and helping them grow in their gross motor, fine motor, play ​skills, and daily activities. I have enjoyed building a connection with ​families and helping them advocate for their child to be successful ​throughout their homes, schools, and communities. Additionally, I ​have gained extra certifications in maternal mental health and ​lactation to be able to further support new and current mamas in ​their feeding journeys.
