“I try to incorporate play, what is meaningful to the child or adolescent, mindfulness, and movement as much as possible when working on child development,” said Hamus when she was asked about her experience and skills. She went on to add, “I love helping children live their best life possible. It’s truly the best to help them grow and develop in life, watch them discover the magic of childhood, and watch them achieve a new skill or access a part of life they were struggling with. I also enjoy giving parents the tools and knowledge they need to help their children attain wellness.”

My best advice is to come in and expect that this will be a team approach, in a relaxing and play based atmosphere. I approach my care as a family oriented and team approach with the families I work with. I do support the child to grow and develop to reach their goals. I also understand how busy and hard life can be, especially when a child is needing some extra support, and so I work to provide a cohesive experience supporting the complexities and needs of the family routines as well as the child's individual needs to make it work for everyone. We do a lot of play and a lot of movement to help learn, grow, and develop.
