“Emmy’s Gifts of Intuition of Self-care & OT Practice course is a must-do for all OT practitioners! She guides you through simple, soothing, and fun ways to connect deeper with yourself (to better help you & your clients), as well as how you can teach your clients how to connect with themselves to enhance their own healing and wellbeing. She weaves intuition with the OT profession seamlessly. Sharing the message of intuition, Emmy has given a refreshing gift to OT practice, one that is deeply needed by all.” – Meaghan Smeraglia, OTR/L, CCA

“I loved learning more ways to connect with my intuition like expanding upon my creativity, quieting my mind and tuning into myself more, and practicing things like yoga and energy work.” – Amanda Jean Burr, MSOT, OTR/L

“Emmy did a great job of pioneering the use of our intuition as holistic OTs in this class. She presented us with research about intuition and how it helps us heal our bodies as well as how it can help us as healing practitioners to help our clients. She also highlighted some new information from the OT Practice Framework that justifies our use of higher intelligence in our treatments. We were able to practice a few basic techniques as well, and leave feeling inspired to integrate this important tool into our own lives as well as encourage our clients to develop their own intuitive abilities. Her presence during the class spoke wonders about the value of developing our intuition as she was so calm and eloquent in her presentation. I also loved that she spoke about her own process of developing her intuition in order to recreate her identity as a holistic OT in a very authentic way.” – Amanda Bartlett, OTR/L

“I really enjoyed the way Emmy tied the OT practice framework to health and wellness and how OTs can find ways to include alternative methods into client areas of concern.” – Monique Portanger OTR/L

“Once again Emmy offers a platform for growth and self understanding as a clinician. Having worked in clinical contexts that do not value intuition, therapeutic use of self, or a holistic approach to healing, this community is a nourishing fountain of validation. Thank You!” Michele Darger, MOT/L
