Our licensed occupational therapists/certified hand therapists have intricate knowledge of upper extremity function and structure, and we work with patients to prevent injury or impairment, restore gross and fine motor skills, and enhance participation in activities of daily living.
All patients receive one-on-one treatment from a certified hand therapist, supported by experienced exercise technologists. We collaborate with your physician to create your treatment plan, using the highest clinical standards in the field.
Our staff is warm and supportive, and our soothing, sun-filled space provides a healing environment.

This thank you is long overdue but so incredible necessary. I feel so lucky to have had you as my OT and am so thankful for all of your help in rehabilitating my hand. I know it’s your job and you see worse every day, but to me it was a major life event. Your positive energy, patience, encouragement, and expertise kept me motivated to make a full recovery. You’re amazing at what you do and reassured me that there are indeed good people in this world. Thank You! Best of luck to you and your family.
Thank you for all you have done. It’s nice to know there are still nice people in this world.
....I can say that I have never encountered such care, commitment to patients as people, and the impression that this person was working here because of a deep sense of vocation, not just to make money. And I watched him treat each patient who came in as if they were a friend, and this was reciprocated. He works his patients hard, and doesn’t mess around when it comes to working the hand or arm, but he is there every step encouraging, motivating, and adjusting when needed. I have to say, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone working in the area of health care that worked harder, or cared more than Justin and Stephanie and we would recommend them fully and without hesitation.
