Amber Harvey

 

I graduated from the University of North Dakota in 2008 with a Master’s of Occupational Therapy. Since graduating, I have gained clinical experience in a variety of areas including adult rehabilitation, memory care, and pediatrics. I have always loved children and feel passionate about promoting independence and quality of life for everyone. In my evaluation and treatment, I use a client and family centered approach and believe that the best outcomes are achieved when we all work towards the same goals. I have training in reflex integration, sensory processing, motor development, physical agent modalities, anxiety, and feeding difficulties. When I’m not at work, you can find me outside enjoying flowers and trees, with my family (2 active children who love sports, one dog), traveling with my husband, learning new information through reading or continuing education courses, or cooking.
