Zakiyyah Carter

Hi! My name is Zakiyyah Carter, and I am a Licensed/ Registered Occupational Therapist. Sometimes mental health conditions, physical disabilities, injuries, and other life factors can hinder us from participating in our daily lives. Facing barriers that make it difficult to live the life we envision can be extremely disappointing and leave us feeling empty inside. As an OT, it is my goal to help you find ways to overcome those obstacles. We can collaborate to rehabilitate, improve, regulate, and develop skills that allow you to optimize your actives of daily living, or occupations. Through increased independence and participation in daily activities, I seek to support you in living a life full of meaning and purpose. 
I have had the pleasure of treating clients of all age groups and varying conditions including but not limited to mental health (anxiety, depression, ADHD, suicidal ideation, postpartum depression and psychosis, eating disorders, etc.), developmental disabilities (autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability), physical conditions (stroke, heart attack, acquired and traumatic brain injury, cancer, joint replacement surgeries, cardiac rehabilitation, etc.). I strive to create an environment in which my clients feel supported, understood, and empowered. It is my belief that collaboration can be just as important as rehabilitation, so my approach will always be client-centered and tailored to meet your individual needs. 
Supporting clients in being able to experience life to the fullest is my passion, and I am committed to finding the best ways to help you thrive. Thank you for reading a little about me, and I look forward to learning more about you!
