Kids in Preschool


Minds In Motion is an occupational therapy practice providing quality care to children and families across the Tidewater area. Our mission is to help children develop skills that enhance their independence and support their overall happiness to function in all areas of life, including home, school, and play. We believe that the best way to do this is to encourage children to be active thinkers and participants in their therapy sessions. We pride ourselves in helping your child make generalized progress as they develop lifelong skills.


We provide a safe and nurturing environment that fosters a child’s strengths, taps into their motivation, and challenges them to think, move, and adapt to new situations. We also provide caretakers with adequate support and education regarding their children with disabilities and/or regulation difficulties.

Home Based Services

We come to you! Occupational therapy sessions educate you on how to build motor skills, aid in sensory modulation, and extinguish regulatory challenges all within the comfort of your own home. In addition, occupational therapists are trained to provide guidance on home adaptations, and on how to create a realistic structure to support child development in day-to-day life. 

School Readiness & Consults

Are you worried that your child may not be ready for school? We provide occupational therapy sessions to build foundational skills needed for school performance. We also focus on building your child's confidence and motivation to participate in school-based activities. We are also happy to connect with your child's school team to create a plan that best supports them in making the most progress possible. 

Telehealth & Virtual Services

We offer coaching and support through quality, interactive online therapy sessions. Telehealth has proven to be a sufficient modality to provide treatment, offering greater flexibility to meet a family's individual needs while also providing privacy for you to communicate with your child's therapist in a virtual setting. We offer caretaker support to prepare and structure telehealth sessions to make most of the virtual time! 


Wondering if your child could benefit from pediatric occupational therapy? Call or email us today and set up a free 15-minute phone consultation to answer any questions you may have and determine if our services are a good fit for your child and family. 



We moved to the area when our daughter was in 5th grade, and after 7 years of various Occupational Therapy, we finally found the best fit with Jiselle. Not only is Jiselle extremely well-versed in the various sensory activities that our daughter needed to help with regulation, but she also integrated social skills with the therapy in a way we had never experienced before. She always collaborated with our daughter to set goals and develop lists of activities that catered to our daughter’s interests. After 3.5 years of in-person OT, we had to shift to virtual due to the pandemic. Jiselle made this transition easy and helped our daughter be even more independent as they interacted on video calls. Jiselle’s approach in the virtual environment really helped with functioning and routines around the house. We highly recommend Jiselle, and she is very open to customizing her approach to meet the needs of any family.
