Pamela Olson, MOT, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

Pamela has over ten years of working with children and adolescents with varying needs, across clinic, home, and school environments in the Bay Area.  She has maintained her license through extensive continuing education in sensory integration, motor skill development, cognitive skills and processes, and use of alternative therapeutic modalities (i.e. yoga and mindfulness).  She is trained and certified in the USC Sensory Integration Certificate Program, as well as a variety of therapeutic techniques including Integrated Listening System (iLs), Therapeutic Listening, Therapressure protocol, and S.O.S. Approach to Feeding.  Pamela’s occupational therapy sessions are grounded in her view of each individual as a whole person – mind, body, and spirit.  She works with clients in order to enable them to discover their potential and flow through occupations with a greater sense of accomplishment.

In addition to being an occupational therapist, Pamela has over 200 hours of training in the teachings of yoga, and is recognized as a 200-RYT (registered yoga teacher).  She enjoys spending her free time exploring new (and known) areas, spending time with family and friends, and training her up-and-coming therapy dog, Jetty.
