With a holistic approach, I improve the learning abilities, skills AND self-confidence of children, utilizing games & proven strategies honed over 20+ years as a school-based Occupational Therapist. Kids develop the ability to learn, explore and engage with people and the world around them. Here are some experiences of parents whose children I’ve treated.

My true ability is tapping into and developing the superpowers of each child.

Our 10-year-old son received virtual OT services as part of his IEP this fall (2020). Ms. Yifat has such an amazing presence that even in a virtual situation our son was so engaged and excited to interact with her. Highly recommend for not only her well thought out programming, but also as a thought partner for addressing OT issues and concerns.

Once we moved to virtual learning, Yifat went above and beyond to stay involved with our daughter even though they could not meet face-to-face. We would recommend her to anyone in need of an Occupational Therapist.

Yifat not only helped our daughter with skills to calm herself, deal with difficult situations and interact with peers, but she taught her important life skills!

Working with Yifat has been a wonderful experience. My child’s skills have been improving. As important as being an effectiive therapist, she is a warm, welcoming and enthusiastic cheerleader for our child. She creates an environment where our child can’t wait for the next session.

True Abilties is Driven by These Values


As a mother of three children, I’ve “been there”  and understand the challenges of parents AND kids, with empathy and sensitivity.


I am passionate about helping children  adapt and thrive, and always remember who I am here to help and why.  (In addition to helping parents and teachers navigate challenges).


I operate by a strict code of ethics and will never compromise the standard of care in any situation. 


I have succeeded in helping children stretch beyond their comfort zone, and am committed to their success.
