Kristin Mitzenmacher,M.S.,OTR/L

 

 

Kristin received her bachelor of science degree in Child Development from the University of La Verne in 2011. She worked as a nanny for several years, where she gained hands-on experience learning about early childhood development. Kristin knew that she was passionate about helping children, so she worked for a few nonprofit organizations before returning to school to become an occupational therapist. Kristin obtained her master of science degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of St. Augustine in 2019.

 

Kristin completed her fieldwork at Kids on the Point OT, Inc., where she was able to meet and work with many wonderful children and families and gain experience with a variety of diagnoses, including Sensory Processing Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and learning disabilities. She also completed her fieldwork at a neurorehabilitation clinic, where she gained experience working with adults with strokes and traumatic brain injuries. 

 

In her professional career, Kristin values constant expansion of her skillset through a variety of trainings. Kristin believes that play can be used therapeutically to promote a child’s functionality, creativity, self-confidence, and understanding of the social world. She feels very lucky to work at a clinic that assumes a family-centered approach to support children’s play and independence at home, at school, and in the community. 

 

In her free time, Kristin enjoys surfing, camping, and hiking with her dog, Kiwi.
