Nice to Meet You
Our passion for occupational therapy stems from our love of helping others. We especially enjoy working in pediatrics as there is so much potential for growth, joy, and independence. As occupational therapists, our treatment not only focuses on the child but also on the family. We believe this plays a large role in client and family success.
In our treatment, we also like to place an emphasis on overall sensory and emotional regulation to promote participation and engagement in session. Our methodology follows the current research in the field, and we keep on top of all new developments within the profession.
As pediatric occupational therapists, we are also very passionate about creating a community which is why we offer group programs to foster a support system for parents.
Get to Know Us
McKenzie Collins, MS, OTR/L
I'm born and raised in Orange County, California! I love being outdoors, going to the beach, playing tennis, and spending time with my friends and family. I also have a 1-year-old mini dachshund named Olive.
Working with children has always been my dream, so I'm grateful to do what I love every day. I am very passionate about and certified in sensory and reflex integration. This has allowed me to help children from the root of their difficulties and empower families with the knowledge to best support their child.
Chloe Poon, MS, OTR/L, SWC
I am originally from Hong Kong and lived in the UK for 10 years before moving to California! In my free time, I love spending time with my dog, Phillip, being creative and cooking!
My passion in cooking and being creative led me to occupational therapy, in particular feeding therapy. I have worked with children throughout my career and love the joy I get to share with them and their families. I received my advanced qualification in feeding and swallowing - I am very excited to continue to share the joy of eating with all the families I work with!
