Doug Levine
Owner / MPT
We provide physical, occupational, or speech therapy sessions in the home, school, daycare, or even in the neighborhood park or swimming pool. Our work can be functional and practical there, directly impacting your child's ability to grow in his or her natural environment. Moreover, working in these real-world environments facilitates the sharing of information and strategies between therapists and parents, teachers, and other caregivers. By partnering with all members of your child's community, we help your child not only to develop new skills, but also to apply them to everyday life with support.

Our therapists are happy to consult with all members of your child's medical team, including physicians, school therapists, equipment vendor, or orthotist. We know how important coordinating services can be, and we welcome any opportunity to put our professional minds together on your child's behalf.
