All Recreation Therapy at Life in Full is provided on a one-to-one basis with a completely personalized approach. I assess my client in-depth on their leisure preferences, patterns, past and future interests, strengths, barriers, attitudes, diagnoses, support systems, functional abilities…you get the picture, I do my research! Together we then establish achievable, measurable goals, an evidence-based treatment plan, and schedule of sessions. Treatment plans follow industry best practices, published research, and proven methods, and can include a variety of the above-mentioned interventions.
Goals vary from person to person, but the bottom line? To have fun! And enjoy a fulsome, meaningful life while moving past any barriers or obstacles.
