Adam is a certified Occupational Therapy Assistant whose passion for working with children provided new purpose and direction in his life, bringing him to Creating Pathways. Adam’s clinical specialty is helping school-aged children thrive in their community and home life, while helping them advocate for their needs to better play, interact, and develop.
Adam received an Associate of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy at Linn-Benton Community College. In the last two years as an Occupational Therapy Assistant, Adam has worked with many children in the Willamette Valley through Mighty Oaks, Old Mill Center, and finally Creating Pathways.
Adam thrives on engaging and challenging children through a fun and play-based approach, always seeking to test their limits and provide support and encouragement. His time in school and pediatric clinical settings fortified his ability to connect with children on a personal and emotional level to reassure and promote successful interactions with family and peers. He has training in SOS approach to feeding, Handwriting Without Tears, reflex integration, and the Wilbarger Deep Pressure Protocol.
When not working with the children of his community, Adam enjoys spending time with his own family, hiking, and watching sports.
