About Us

Everyone is welcome!

At Therapy Works, we welcome and enjoy the opportunity to work with all children- no matter what their abilities or medical condition. We take a child and family-centered approach in understanding and working with your child to help them achieve their fullest potential. We help kids be kids!

Where we began

In 1994, Kay Nelson, an occupational therapist and Terrie Millard, a physical therapist had a vision of a pediatric therapy clinic without the clinical setting.  A comfortable place where children, their families and therapists alike could thrive, feel secure and develop their full potential.

Today Therapy Works continues to change, improve and adapt to meet the needs and challenges of the children and families it serves. Through love and respect for others, our therapists provide a caring and accepting atmosphere that allows families, their children and therapists to laugh, have fun and look with pleasure to each new challenge.

Please explore our site and discover why Therapy Works makes therapy for children work.

We are your child’s team!

We work hand in hand with families, doctors, teachers, other therapists, and agencies to ensure that your child receives the maximum benefits of therapy. Our goal is to ensure that everyone involved has a thorough understanding of your child’s needs.
