About Brooke

Her Story

 

Brooke is an accomplished registered and licensed occupational therapist with over 22 years of healthcare experience. Her unique background includes practice in world-renowned rehabilitation and hospital settings based in Boston and NYC such as Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Maimonides Medical Center. Here, she specialized in treatment of patients with complex, and often severe injuries or illnesses, where her role was to support their first steps towards recovery and function.

 

She has worked with both adult and pediatric populations, with diagnoses spanning medically complex, orthopedic & trauma, neurologic, burn, cardiac, behavioral and developmental, among others. 

In becoming a mother 13 years ago, Brooke experienced the difficult journey of postpartum depression and anxiety, multiple pregnancy losses, and secondary infertility. Pelvic pain and muscle weakness made her attempts to feel "normal" that much harder.  With effort, she found good (but not great) care. Along the way, she recognized that many women normalize what they are experiencing, assuming that things like incontinence, intense worry, and pain just come with the territory of birthing a baby - and never seek help.

 

Like all mothers, enormous shifts in her roles, routines, and lifestyle occurred. Becoming a mom brought deep joy, but also overwhelming struggle. From these blessings and challenges came a newfound passion: to merge the lessons of her own motherhood experience with her clinical expertise into a practice that benefits other women at risk for maternal mental health disorder and/or pelvic floor dysfunction. Through hands-on therapy, education, and advocacy, she is determined to help moms THRIVE.

Brooke is the founder of She Thrives Therapy Solutions and has received training from numerous top Women's Health, Pelvic Health, and Maternal Mental Health specialists both locally and from afar. She is a member of and volunteer for Postpartum Support International, former ambassador and contractor for 2020 Mom Project, and proudly practiced with the perinatal health collaborative at South Shore Perinatal Wellness Center in Norwell, MA . In addition, she is an active member of MAOT (Massachusetts Association for Occupational Therapy),AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association) and a Women's Health Occupational Therapy Mastermind group.
