Invaluable!

I can’t tell you how lucky I feel that I found you at the most perfect time- feeling misaligned with OT as I’ve known it the last 17 years and about to abandon the profession all together! Your posts and your podcasts have breathed new life into me! You’ve ignited a new fire and I’m forever grateful. Thank you thank you thank you! ✨🌱🙏🏼

Inspiring

Definitely inspiring; however would love to know what is your payer source -Cash? Insurance? Here in USA only therapists affiliated with insurances can “compete”; cash base practices are possible but very difficult to built when schools offer “free OT”. Would love your input on that. Thanks!
