Carolyn has over 20 years of experience as a licensed occupational therapist specializing in pediatric clinic- and school-based OT. After a brief career in the business world, she learned about the world of occupational therapy and was motivated to make a career change, graduating from Columbia University with her Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy - a decision she is continually grateful to have made. She enjoys using her skills to work directly with children as well as collaborating with parents and others involved in her clients’ care. She has experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, executive function difficulties, cerebral palsy and fine motor and developmental delays. She is certified in the Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) and is a certified provider of modalities including Interactive Metronome, Therapeutic Listening, and The Listening Program and has training in the Handwriting Without Tears program. She specializes in sensory processing and self-regulation, and has training in the Zones of Regulation, the Interoception Curriculum and the Sarah Ward 360 Thinking Executive Function approaches as well as the Learning Without Tears program. Carolyn is an adjunct professor in Kean University’s Master’s in Occupational Therapy program. She is a wife and a

mother of three, Will, Anna and Betheny (four if you count the family goldendoodle, Otis). When not working, she loves spending time with her family and friends, cooking, hiking, and pursuing her new interest in knitting.
