Careers & Volunteering

Working at MMM

Mighty Minds and Muscles is a small, boutique team-oriented therapy and coaching organization. Our approach is thorough and progressive; we are not just a therapy clinic but also a learning centre where we focus on the whole child and the whole family. 

 

We esteem that the body and mind develop through progressive developmental changes and psychological breakthroughs. We also believe that one's environment has a great effect on our sensory systems and sometimes we need to change the environment, in order to change ourselves (and vice versa). 

We focus on building strong, confident children and families through a combination of 'bottom-up' neurodevelopmental exercises and 'top-down' organizational strategies. We are committed to putting in 100% effort to achieve your family and child's goals.

*At this time we are seeking therapists interested in providing school-based O.T. at NYC schools in Manhattan, Staten Island, and Brooklyn. Please submit your resume and availability.
