MscOT, OT Reg. (Ont.)
Nikita completed her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Toronto after receiving her Honours Specialization in Health Sciences from the University of Western Ontario. She is also registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario.
Nikita has worked in a variety of pediatric settings, including school-based rehabilitation, non-profit organizations, child and youth camps, and running her own OT practice for years. She has experience supporting children and youth living with a range of abilities in the areas of:
– fine and gross motor development
– visual motor and visual perceptual skills
– self-care skills
– sensory processing
– social skills
She believes learning is a gift and right to anyone willing to try, but HOW each person learns, takes on many forms! Her passion is working with kids and their support systems to help them learn and achieve their goals.
Nikita’s approach to occupational therapy involves celebrating differences and empowering clients to be the best versions of themselves. She believes in a team approach and loves to involve caregivers as much as possible, so they feel more confident supporting their loved ones needs. Nikita is committed to creating a safe space for learning that is fun, evidence-based, creative, and individualized to each client’s unique needs.
Over the years she has really enjoyed helping kids and their families navigate through this world and address their personal challenges while building off of their strengths. She is a problem solver and enjoys finding new ways to engage kids in activities/occupations that enhance their future. She also loves learning from her clients just as much as teaching them!
