Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy is an allied healthcare profession that aims to help individuals achieve their utmost potential. Occupational therapy applies a holistic approach to facilitating independence in the performance of meaningful occupations (or activities) by looking at the person, their environment, and the activities that they do. Occupational therapists administer comprehensive and evidenced-based assessments and treatment programs based on personalized goals, with the intention of helping individuals live a more meaningful life.


Karina Jackson is an occupational therapist with more than 5 years of clinical experience, specializing in hand therapy for various musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, and has a background in psychology. Through a client-centered approach, Karina is committed to empowering individuals and families to perform the activities they need to, want to, or are expected to do. As an occupational therapist, Karina is dedicated to applying her knowledge and skills to support expecting parents as they navigate the physical and psychosocial facets of perinatal health and wellness.

Our approach

Occupational therapy services seek to empower individuals to engage in meaningful occupations and to maintain functional independence in the perinatal period. Many of these occupations are related to motherhood given that the arrival of a newborn implies the performance of baby-care tasks. This dynamic life change can be daunting! Occupational therapists are well equipped to promote health and wellness through interventions that prevent pain, increase function, and promote meaningful occupations through pregnancy and postpartum, as moms navigate their new role and take on baby-care tasks.
