Deborah Graves, OTD, OTR/L
My love of nature, whole-body learning, and nurturing growth in others has woven through, defined, and created the fabric of my being and life-purpose. Early on I pursued my Bachelors degree in Environmental Studies with a focus on Environmental Education. I then taught PK through 6th grade science and outdoor ed for 11 years through the Orange County Department of Education as a Traveling Scientist and Program Naturalist. During summers I taught swimming, sailing, and kayaking as an outdoor adventure instructor. Later I went on to receive my Masters and Doctoral degrees in Occupational Therapy. I pursued specialty training in Ayers Sensory Integration as well as trauma-focused Trust Based Relational Intervention, incorporating body-mind and sensory learning with social-emotional learning. I apply my OT and teaching experience to provide learning in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings to challenge and engage students in strengthening their body, mind, and social relationships. I have extensive training in kinesthetic and mindfulness-based practices and offer a teaching style that supports children not only in recovering from stress but also in gaining valuable skills of resilience for care of self, others, and our planet. In my free time I enjoy a variety of movement and mindfulness-based practices, hiking with friends, nature photography, creative writing, therapeutic art, learning new things, and cultivating curiosity! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family
