Born and raised in Brazil, Bruno began his career as an Occupational Therapist in a cardiovascular hospital building his skillset and expertise. His true calling as a Pediatric OT was fully realized when he began treating children with heart disease presenting with developmental delays in the Pediatric Inpatient Unit and caring for premature babies in the Intensive Care Unit. Bruno has dedicated his profession to the pediatric field ever since.
After working two years exclusively treating children with heart disease at the hospital, Bruno moved to private practice, gaining experience on a wider range of conditions affecting children’s health, including rare diseases, cerebral palsy, neuromuscular disease, and other muscular and developmental ailments.
Bruno is passionate about pediatric rehabilitation, and takes a holistic approach when developing treatment plans to ensure the best possible care. Always eager to learn, he has continued his training with dedicated courses in motor and physical rehabilitation, sensory processing, cognitive strategies, visual therapy techniques for children with cortical visual impairment, and pediatric bowel and bladder health. Additionally, Bruno has expertise in upper limb splint fabrication and wheelchair prescription.
Bruno tirelessly works towards the best possible treatment for his patients and their development. Children should have the freedom to play, study, and participate in school, and Bruno builds techniques into his therapy so his patients can do so safely. He stresses the importance of his children living their best lives, even with limitations, ensuring they can perform their daily activities independently and with confidence.
Bruno is fluent in English, Spanish and Portugese and he can offer therapeutic support in all three languages.
