​Natalie Bledstein, OTR/L, CST-D

Natalie is a graduate of UW-Madison, with degrees in Art (1988) and Occupational Therapy (1995).  Over the course of her career, Natalie has consistently been drawn to private practice, as she has found the ability to best meet client and family needs in this environment.  Passionate about lifelong learning, Natalie is USC-WPS certified in the Sensory Integration & Praxis Tests, and has achieved both Techniques and Diplomate certifications in CranioSacral therapy.  Always curious to learn new information to support client goals, Natalie has studied modulated music systems (Therapeutic Listening and Integrated Listening Systems), reflex integration through the Musgatova Institute and Rhythmic Movement International, fine motor and handwriting skill development through Handwriting Without Tears and First Strokes, vestibular processing (Astronaut Training and other courses), and multiple courses in vision (ocular-motor skills and visual-perceptual skills) as relates to the populations she serves.  Most recently she has studied trauma informed practice, the Safe & Sound Protocol, and screening for and bodywork applications to address tethered oral tissues.  She is honored to play a role in her clients' lives, celebrating progress and being present with them a short distance on their journey.

Natalie believes in paying forward the benefits she has received from being mentored by others, teaching Craniosacral Therapy workshops as a Certified Instructor for the Upledger Institute, acting as a mentor for therapists, and leading a craniosacral therapy study group.  You can find more information about her here:http://www.iahp.com/NatalieBledstein/
