Harmony Therapeutics, LLC  has been servicing Pediatric Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapy for over 15 years in a variety of settings, including in-home therapy, schools, group homes, clinics and private sessions. Virtual consultations & sessions may also be an option. 

 

​We strive to bring out curiosity and creativity, making therapy sessions feel like play. We often follow a child’s lead, being present with their world and strategically allowing challenges for growth and processing in areas of regulation, expressions, sensations, perceptions and motor skills. By boosting confidence, self-esteem, and creativity, it allows for enhanced engagement and interpersonal skills. We also consult and coach caregivers to interact, connect and engage with their child physically, socially and energetically offering tools of empowerment. 

Treatment options vary for each child and caregiver depending on their needs. For specific questions, please consult with us.

Mother of Child with Autism

Trina changed our lives with her positive, caring energy and dedication. She served as my son’s best advocate and occupational therapist over five years during his grade school career. My son was on the autism spectrum and had behavioral, communication and sensory issues that perplexed our family and overran our lives. Trina was dependable, competent and creative with her methods. She motivated our son to make great progress and made the hard work fun. Trina also supported, coached and encouraged the whole family with ways to interact with my son that gave all of us space to breathe and space to just be! This spring, my self-sufficient son will complete his master’s degree, in large part, thanks to Trina

Working with Trina has been a complete joy.  She is an expert in her field and is able to work through very difficult cases with ease.  Trina is well versed in the area of sensory integration and her handling skills are superb.  She is able to switch out her treatment plans seamlessly in order to modify for her patients current needs, this is a skill rarely seen in her field. I recommend Trina without reservations and would not hesitate to send my own family members to be treated under her capable care.

I’ve worked in the field of special education for 30 years and Trina is one of the best. She’s a great team player and knows how to work well with and engage parents, paraprofessionals and teachers, all with different parenting and teaching styles. Because of this flexibility, she is also an amazing asset to have in the classroom. She’s able to modify activities, games, and projects to meet her students' current needs.

I have a young adult son with non-verbal autism. Trina has worked with him for 18 years using a combination of modalities, therapeutic activities, and body work. She has an innate ability to connect with him, even though he hasn’t always been able to express himself easily. She understands him when not many do, which has allowed him to blossom into a flourishing young adult. He is now able to communicate through letter boards, typing on his iPad, as well as many other methods of communicating. He’s able to engage and interact with family, peers, and those in his community, which has been the greatest gift I could ever ask for.
