✔️ Discover our 3 Hidden Senses
✔️ Understand How They Work
✔️ Confidently Support Your Child
Does this sound familiar?
It feels like you've hit a dead end, like the challenges with your child's behaviors and skills are just an unchangeable part of life. It's so easy to feel defeated and think..."it just is what it is."
Here's the thing - When one or more of these hidden senses is struggling behind the scenes, seemingly simple activities like getting dressed, school, or mealtimes can become epic meltdowns.
And if you don't know about these senses, you're left feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and confused about WHY your child seems so difficult.
What are some signs my child may be experiencing challenges with the hidden senses?
- Difficulty sitting still & constantly needing to move.
- Having a hard time copying movements in gymnastics or karate class.
- Preferring to do activities they know they can accomplish over and over, instead of trying new activities.
- Spinning and crashing into things.
- Throwing/hitting when upset or excited.
Start Making SENSE of What's Going On 🤯
To make it extra confusing, it often seems like your child is doing these things on purpose. That they're just silly....not interested in the activity...or are stubborn and strong-willed. But what if I told you it's not on purpose - that their body is subconsciously just trying to get the sensory input it needs?
Did You Know We Had 3 Senses No One Talks About?
Growing up, you may have always been taught that we have 5 senses: hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching. But did you know that there are 3 hidden senses no one talks about?
That's right, they're called the proprioceptive, vestibular, and interoceptive senses - and they've been the occupational therapy world's best kept secret...until now.
Our sense of body awareness. It's how our body knows where our limbs are located. For example, if I close my eyes, I can picture where my hand is.
Our sense of head and body movement. This sense helps us know when we are moving and when we are staying still.
Our sense of what is going on inside our body. For example, it's what tells your child that they are hungry, full, or need to use the bathroom.
Here's the thing...these 3 sneaky senses can be causing a lot of problems behind the scenes. And if you don't even know they exist...or how they work...it's kind of impossible to fix what's going on!
When you finally understand what is going on with the senses and why, you can proactively work to choose sensory input that actually works for your child's body!
"I just finished watching the Sensory Processing Difficulties masterclass and it was SOO helpful. My daughter's SLP always comments that my daughter finds food "threatening" but I never fully understood how or why that happened. I love our SLP, but in our 30 minute sessions there's never enough time for me to dig into the detail or get all my questions answered. The practice schedules SLPs back to back - so I compeltely understand.
For the first time every, I was able to undersatand how and why my daughter feels anxious when we introduce new foods. I feel like watching this masterclass just shifted my whole perspective and understanding of how my daughter experiences eating. I am moving on to the next masterclass now that specifically talks about the sensory system and eating. Can't wait to learn more!"

✔️ Always walking on eggshells, because you can never predict how your child is going to react
✔️ Every-time you try to figure out sensory processing, you just give up...because it's too confusing
✔️ You try strategy after strategy, and just can't figure out why none of them seem to help
✔️ Feeling ashamed that your child hit...throws...or even bites when they're upset or excited
✔️ Becoming disconnected with your child because you can't understand their needs or experiences, as hard as you try
✔️ Starting to give up, because you have no idea how to support their unique needs

Hi! I'm Dr. Sam,
and this is my rescue dog Wolfie 🐶. We're your guides to unlocking the sensory system and making life an adventure for you, your child, or your clients.
With a passion for turning sensory & food into a playful and exciting experience, I'm here to help you break free from the monotony of daily battles. As a trained pediatric occupational and feeding therapist, I've witnessed firsthand the transformative effect that understanding the sensory system can have on a person's life and overall relationship with food, your body, and your family.
I’ve spent the last 9+ years working in the
hospital system helping families improve their child’s development, sensory processing, and eating. Throughout my time as an occupational therapist I’ve worked with countless families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric care unit (PICU), and cardiac intensive care unit (CICU), as well as in outpatient clinics.
But what frustrates me the most, is that education about the sensory system, eating, & development aren't readily available in terms that are understandable, leaving parents feeling lost & confused.
I know how frustrating it can be to worry that you’re not doing the right thing for your child. My goal is to help you feel empowered and confident when it comes to the sensory system.
Together, we'll create a world where the sensory system no longer holds you back from joyful living, but propels you forward.
Let's do this! Love, Dr Sam (and Wolfie 🐶)
