Meet Lara Desrosiers, MSc. OT Reg. (Ont.)
Since 2009, Lara has worked as a Registered Occupational Therapist in community mental health settings to support individuals living with mental illness and addiction to manage difficult symptoms, build relationships and find a sense of meaning and purpose.
Lara is also a mother of two young children and loves high impact sports. She experienced the pervasive impact of pelvic floor dysfunction during her postpartum recovery. She envisioned and created a role for Occupational Therapy in supporting individuals struggling wth their pelvic health and persistent pain to return to the activities they need and want to do and to navigate the emotional roller coaster ride that can often accompany these symptoms.
Lara has since been soaking up literature and continuing education in pelvic health, persistent pain & women’s health in order to help you to navigate your unique experience in a way that promotes SELF COMPASSION, WHOLE PERSON WELLNESS and RESILIENCE.
