April is Occupational Therapy awareness month.

As part of our efforts to promote and educate about OT treatments and services, we want our clients to get to know the therapists we’re proud to have in our SPGCT family.

Please meet our OT Team!

Hi, my name is Caitlin! I am a current full time school based OT when not helping in the clinic. Before becoming an OT I was a teacher. I competitively show horses around the US and have my own, his name is ‘Friday’. If I had a superpower it would be to teleport so I could visit many places, I love to travel! I grew up in Vermont and never skied but finally just learned as an adult. Being an OT has been the best decision and perfect fit for me. I love seeing kids grow and working with them/their families to achieve goals.


I am originally from upstate New York (Rochester, NY in between Buffalo and Syracuse) where I was born and raised.  I have been living in Connecticut for a little over 4 years with my husband, two dogs (Great Dane and Golden Retriever) and cat and we absolutely love it here!  I love animals and throughout college I trained service dogs to help individuals who are visually impaired.  In my spare time I like to go hiking, watch live sporting events and explore new places in New England.  

I love working with children and families to help them reach their goals.


I’ve been a pediatric Occupational Therapist for 2 years! My hobbies include cooking, coaching lacrosse, and reading mystery novels.
