Renee Arand, M.S., OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

I believe that therapy should be focused around each individual child and their specific interests. I love getting to know a child and making therapy as fun and exciting for them because the more they are engaged the more we can help them grow! I love to make my therapy sessions as fun, crazy and messy as each child wants and enjoy working with children in groups.

I am so blessed to be an occupational therapist and to meet so many amazing children on my journey! I love to see the kids I work make progress and meet the goals to help them succeed in life.

I believe that the parents are the true experts on their children and are an absolute vital part of the team. A child can make leaps and strides when everyone is consistently working together in all of their natural environments.
