Lauren Armstrong, OT cares for children of all ages, specializing in feeding and sensory issues. Most of her patients are young (from infants to early elementary age) and include picky eaters and patients with sensory challenges involving touch, texture, and/or smell. She frequently works with patients who have autism or ADHD.
Lauren loves empowering kids and their families, and helping them build confidence through routines and behaviors that reinforce the child's physical, emotional and social development.
Beyond direct patient care, Lauren is working on improving developmental evaluation for younger patients (ages 1-3) to assist in therapy planning. She is also passionate about educating parents on typical/atypical development to help manage expectations and effectively identify areas of concern.
Lauren earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Sonoma State University and a master's degree in occupational therapy from Dominican University. Originally from California, Lauren enjoys hiking, gardening, cooking, and traveling in her free time.
