Occupational Therapist

An Occupational Therapist (OT) is a healthcare professional who helps people improve their ability to perform daily tasks and activities, including work-related tasks. OTs work with individuals across the lifespan, including children and older adults, who may be affected by injury, illness, or disability that may limit their ability to function independently.

OTs assess their client's physical, cognitive, and psychosocial abilities and work with them to develop personalized treatment plans to address their specific needs. They use a range of therapeutic techniques and equipment to help clients achieve their goals, such as exercises to improve strength and range of motion, adaptive equipment to improve mobility, and cognitive strategies to improve memory and attention.

In addition to working with individuals, OTs also work with organizations and communities to promote healthy living and wellness, prevent injury and illness, and create environments that are more inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities. They may also be involved in research and development to improve the effectiveness of their interventions.

OTs can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, schools, and community-based organizations. They may also work in private practice or as part of a multidisciplinary team, collaborating with other healthcare professionals, such as physicians, nurses, and physical therapists, to provide comprehensive care to their clients.

To become an OT, one typically needs to earn a Master's degree in Occupational Therapy from an accredited program, complete supervised clinical experience, and pass a national certification examination. Additionally, OTs may pursue further education and certification in specialized areas, such as pediatrics, geriatrics, or mental health.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
