Karina founded Kids Connect Us in July of 2018 in order to meet a growing need for in-home occupational therapy and community-integrated services, and to support families who are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by coordinating care for their children while trying to parent them.
Kids do best when adults support and nurture their strengths. Karina uses a play-based, relationship-centered, child-led-adult-supported, trauma-informed approach, using lots of movement, sensory input and play.
Karina has a masters degree in occupational therapy from San Jose State University and an undergraduate degree in Biology from UC Santa Cruz. She has received certifications as a yoga teacher, massage therapist, and elementary school science teacher, and is an innovator and leader in the field of Therapeutic Rock Climbing. Karina has post-graduate certification* and/or training in the following programs related to O.T.:
