Zoe Brooker, Occupational Therapist

My journey began over 40 years ago when my sister was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy.  During these early family years, seeds were planted that would later grow into my passion for working with children facing disabilities.

Some of my first roles were within special education including Teacher’s Assistant, ABA Specialist, and Special Education Teacher before becoming an Occupational Therapist.

 

Hi, my name's Zoe and I'm a pediatric Occupational Therapist. 

 

It has been both my pleasure and honor to work with children for over 25 years.

I have a passion for learning and practicing whole person integration, whether for myself or with the children I work with.  What that means for me is being present, noticing emotions, and tuning in to body consciousness. 

Most of all, I enjoy helping children succeed and thrive in achieving their goals. 

I have found mindfulness, yoga and emotional awareness to be instrumental in supporting the children I work with.  Alongside my in-depth knowledge of child development, sensory integration and reflex integration, and by working with the whole child (mind, body, and spirit), I can better support integration and growth.

​I also value working closely with parents and caregivers in a co-collaborative effort towards the success of their child.
