Where Behavior is Understood

The Thrive! practice is currently dedicated to providing a quality mental health occupational therapy treatment program that is personalized to the individual needs of each client. Through sessions and workshops, we help parents and teachers understand their children’s and students’ behaviors.  As each child is treated, each parent is guided to help their child become calmer, happier, and more focused.  Collaboration during and after individual treatment sessions reveals what each child’s behavior really is trying to tell the parent and offers insights into how to strengthen the child’s understanding of self and his interpersonal skills. It gives parents and children/teens the tools they need to help build a meaningful parent-child bond.  Common challenges include behavioral challenges of the dysregulated child, anxiety, fears, ADHD, ASD, ODD, trauma as well as other issues that Miriam has successfully treated for over 12 years. Parents and teachers are fascinated as they learn to be a childhood behavioral detective as well as how to treat it!

Thrive! Occupational Therapy works with children’s challenging behaviors and is holistic in its view. Our focus and interest is in the depth of why kids do what they do.

For payment of services, we accept check, Visa, and MasterCard.

Thrive! Occupational Therapy does not accept insurance. However, depending on your insurance plan and benefits, you may be eligible for reimbursement for services used outside of your network.

You can also request a gap exception from your insurance company. A network gap exception (also known as a clinical gap exception) is a tool that health insurance companies use to compensate for gaps in their network of contracted health care providers. When your health insurer grants you a network gap exception, it allows you to get health care from an out-of-network provider while paying the lower in-network cost-sharing fees.
