Expanding in All Directions

As we expand our Traverse City "home," Children's Therapy Corner is also journeying to an uncharted destination: The Lansing area! Our new location is at 2378 Woodlake Drive, Suite 280, in Okemos.

Our Lansing-area team comes from the Midland and Traverse City locations, and they are ready to share with families the specialized pediatric therapeutic services that CTC provides. The needs of children are definitely statewide, and CTC is pleased that we can be there for families and children in the Lansing area. The response from local physicians, community members and educators has been extremely positive. There is a need, and the Lansing area is ready for the services we provide.

"As at all CTC locations, our ultimate goal is to empower families to truly understand their child's needs and to be able to advocate for their child in all situations," said CTC Okemos Director Matthew Bartels. "The therapeutic processes we teach kids here, we also teach the parents because what they learn here must carry over to their lives at home, at school and in the community. Parent education is a top priority here."

Whatever place we occupy, it is what is within that makes CTC special. Look around, and you'll see children striving yet smiling with the warmth that comes from their immense hearts. You'll see parents who reach above the challenges each and every day and search for the best for their children. You'll see therapists and staff who love what they do, encourage and celebrate the daily achievements and miracles with the children, and always believe in the best for the children they serve. You'll see the fulfillment of so many dreams and prayers. 

Whatever building you visit, we thank you for your support and encouragement as CTC has grown and prospered. We are blessed.
