About Us

Our Why

Expanding Reach Therapy LLC is dedicated to empowering families to empower their little ones. We believe that there is no developmental barrier or diagnosis too big to prevent your child from reaching their most optimal potential.

We value family/caregiver involvement, education, and training to promote independence rather than reliance on your therapist. Each child is seen as a unique individual, with limitless potential. We seek to provide the opportunity to allow your child to reach their most optimal functional mobility through a personalized and customizable approach to therapy that works for both you and your beloved little one.
