Occupational Therapist, Integrative Health Coach, and Yoga Instructor
Practitioner Specialty or Specialties: Occupational Therapy, Integrative Health Coaching, and Yoga
My name is Sangeeta Kirtikar. I have been an Occupational Therapist for over 30 years. I believe that my clients are my partners in healthcare delivery, and I’m motivated by the success my clients feel after meeting their goals. I strive to deliver nurturing and supportive environments that promote healthy living. Validation and empowerment are key to making anyone feel powerful. To promote holistic and integrative care, I received my diploma in yoga instruction in 2009, and have also been certified in Integrative Health Coaching from the Andrew Weil program at the University of Arizona.
As an Occupational Therapist, I have had the joy and opportunity to work both with adults and children. I have worked in a variety of settings – from acute care hospitals to home health environments. To talk a little bit about the ‘medical stuff’- I have worked with clients with a variety of diagnoses, such as Neurological rehab (e.g. CVA, Spinal Disorders, Cognitive Disorders, Parkinson Disease); Orthopedic diagnoses (e.g. shoulder rehab for shoulder fractures, shoulder replacements, fine motor rehab, hand therapy); and General rehabilitation (e.g balancing restraints).
With the pediatric population, I have experience with Sensory Integration, Neurodevelopmental Rehabilitation, fine motor control, and school settings. When I work with my pediatric clients, I love thinking about creative ways to make therapy fun. The seamlessness of turning work into play is the power behind pediatric Occupational Therapy. I work closely with parents to create a supportive and comfortable plan. As a parent myself, I know the feeling of ‘giving up control’ and building trust.
As a health coach, an Occupational Therapist, and a yoga instructor, I walk with you to meet your goals. You are always in control of your health, and I support you in living life to the fullest!
