I have always had a passion for working with young children, even as a young child myself. From babysitting at a very young age, being a live in nanny through school and studying child development as an adult, every part of child development is just fascinating! I’m always intrigued at each child’s uniqueness and everything that comes with them. From their ability to adapt to just about any situation to striking up conversations about things like dinosaurs, imaginary dogs, sticky fingers… well… pretty much anything! I’m always learning something new with each child I meet. I’m also very passionate about empowering families to be their child’s advocate and helping them find the resources that they need to help them become a stronger unit. That’s what I love about CTC!

At CTC I am able work with a dedicated, supportive team of professionals who all share the same goal of supporting children and families to reach their full potential.
I am excited to be working with the CTC team after being initially introduced to the team as a parent whose child received therapy through the CTC. I was amazed at how caring and hardworking the team is. It was so joyful to see the growth not only in my child but also with the other children. It’s such a satisfying feeling to see the kiddos grow and accomplish so much
I love working with children because they’re just so fun to be around! Each child is unique and sees the world differently. I like learning their different perspectives and connecting with them. I also enjoy working side-by-side with their caregivers to navigate their child’s therapy journey together, and to help create a richer language environment at home. What drew me to be a part of the CTC team is definitely the ability to work with so many other professionals who share the same vision — to help children and their families thrive with the aid of therapy and early intervention!
I feel so lucky to be able to work with such great people, who truly care about all the kids. There is nothing more rewarding than the look on a kid’s face when they have that “ah-ha” moment. I feel so blessed to experience that with them. Everyday the kids I see remind me that life is too short not to laugh and be silly. I hit the jackpot with this job!!
My favorite part about working with children is getting to experience their enjoyment and delight in the little in-between moments of life. I particularly love getting to know each child, understanding their unique interests and needs, and problem-solving with them and their families to provide the best support for them to thrive. As a previous fieldwork student at CTC, one thing that drew me back here after I became a therapist was witnessing this multi-disciplinary group of people share the same passion and like-minded focus to help children reach their full potential.
