Karen Koppernaes, Occupational Therapist

BScOT

Karen considers herself a “seasoned” Occupational Therapist given her vast experience and her firm belief that age is simply a state of mind! Her involvement in educating individuals and groups who are dealing with the effects of aging, illness, trauma and pain make her a natural fit with Zoomers.

Karen embraces the philosophy of ability rather than disability. Her work in occupational therapy addresses the “whole” person; this empowers clients to manage and maximize their potential in the domains of self-care, productivity and leisure.

She has a special interest in upper extremity conditions, coping strategies, and uses multiple modalities including art, music and movement to effect change through the premise of neuroplasticity.
