I’m Jessica Mevius and I’m an Occupational Therapist. Occupational Therapy is a profession that helps people of all ages do the things they want and need to do through the use of daily activities (or occupations!). Occupational Therapists enable people of all ages to live their best life by helping them promote health when faced with challenges, illness, or disability.
I started a private practice in order to modify the way I interact with clients. After doing my undergrad and graduate work at TWU, I worked primarily in home-health settings with pediatric patients with a wide range of diagnoses. With Therapy Squared, I want to help a broader spectrum of patients — from helping the typically-developing child be able to better perform throughout their school day to adults with sensory challenges who have difficulty living a full life. My passion to help enrich the lives of others with my personal and professional experience gives me a unique and relatable approach.
I’m currently providing in-school services (both individual and group sessions) to the following private schools. Does your school need an on-site Occupational Therapist? This unique partnership can greatly benefit your students!
Common challenges that arise in the course of life may benefit from skilled Occupational Therapy intervention. Treatment plans are tailored with a focus on individual strengths and the whole, complex person in mind.
Handwriting is a complex skill that requires the use of many systems. OTs can help address these challenges.
Easily distracted or can’t sit still? Attention requires the whole body to be in a ‘just-right’ state.
OTs address coordination to improve play and school skills like hitting a target, batting a ball, or copying from a backboard.
All behaviors have a meaning; difficulty with sensory processing and self-modulation may be contributing factors.
Teeth-brushing deficiencies or poor toileting care? Not laziness – may be an indicator of delays in other systems.
Picky eater, sensitivity to sounds, complains about tags in shirts, crashing into things? Constantly moving and fidgeting?
Proud member of AOTA, NBCOT, and TOTA (have to keep those memberships and registrations current!). I completed my undergraduate and graduate work from TWU (#17 OT school in US!) in 2009 – go Pioneers!.
I’m continually learning and bringing new techniques to my clients. Constant evolution of my therapy techniques brings the best results!
