“Throughout the holistic certification, I was led by Emmy Vadnais, OT, to have a deeper understanding and awareness. This understanding assisted me to not only help myself, initially but help my clients to make personalized, informed decisions. Through an educational experience exploring multiple strategies, I was further instructed on how to not only use OT theory, modifications, and adaptations but more strategies that fit the need of my clients. Emmy not only highlighted ways to make each session a personalized experience but a positive one. I truly believe that is because she gave us the foundational concepts to determine how to first care for ourselves, and then for others. Emmy Vadnais has a beautiful presentation in each section with supporting research, treatment methods, and allows for the opportunity to practice and receive feedback. Even in an online format, I feel as if I am right there. All courses have led to personal and professional growth. Through this holistic certification, I feel more rooted and grounded not only as a clinician in OT but as a person who understands the importance of health and well-being’s direct effect on daily roles, habits, routines, and general life practices. Emmy Thank You for such a well-organized, thoughtful, detail-oriented course, so well designed I can’t wait to take courses in the future and apply each strategy in my clinical endeavors. Your passion for the care of others and instruction is evident in each course and the material. Thank you!” Anna Rinholen, OTR/L
