Nicole Klepp, Psy.D.

My experiences have taught me that developing a deeper understanding of oneself is important for learning, growing, and successfully reaching one's goals. One of my professional goals is to incorporate this philosophy into treatment by helping individuals focus on their strengths and solidify their belief systems. Self-exploration is only one portion of successful therapy though. In its entirety, treatment can help provide the foundation for life altering opportunities through a process that also involves mastering challenges and effectively adapting to the changes that naturally accompany growth and life.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic as I incorporate cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, mindfulness, visual imagery, and person-centered therapies to individuals and families based on my assessment of clients' needs. I work with children, adolescents, and adults presenting with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism spectrum, learning disabilities, memory problems, relational problems, and trauma. I also have experience in treating and evaluating individuals with neurobehavioral disorders, neurological disorders, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive impairments.

A large part of my practice is inclusive of conducting psychological and neuropsychological evaluations, in which typical referral questions involve concerns about attention, concentration, learning disabilities, memory, dementia, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, social interactions, and self-care. I have done evaluations for educational purposes, disability determination, division of vocational rehabilitation, inpatient facilities, assisted and independent living facilities, and self- or family-referred individuals.

Owner, Licensed Psychologist

Sammi Jo Hurkmans, Psy.D.

My desire to pursue a career in the field of psychology stems from the compassion and concern I have for all people and the belief that growth occurs through relationship and connection. I completed my undergraduate training in Wyoming, where I earned an Associate of Arts degree from the Laramie County Community College in 2008 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Wyoming in 2012. I moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2012 to pursue graduate training in Psychology at the Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology, and graduated with a Doctorate of Psychology in 2018. During the graduate program, I trained in various settings, including community mental health centers, private practice locations, nonprofit organizations, and psychiatric hospitals.

 

Throughout my training, I have learned the importance of establishing a connection with the individuals I am working with and understanding the impact the therapeutic relationship has on progress. I am person-centered and collaborative in my approach as my desire is to help others discover their power in making the necessary changes for themselves and working together to explore all possible paths. Although I enjoy working with a range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, and relational difficulties, my main area of focus and interest is working with individuals who have experienced traumatic events that continue to impact them today. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Processing (EMDR), which is a tool used to further process experiences that talk therapy often cannot access. This tool can be used for both children and adults, although I also incorporate play therapy techniques with children as needed. Given my background as a military dependent, I also have a keen interest in serving the Veteran population and providing them therapeutic services to assist with civilian life.

 

In addition to therapy, I also specialize in conducting psychological and neuropsychological evaluations. These evaluations have assisted in determining one’s overall functioning, as well as focusing on specific areas of concern, including intellectual disabilities, Autism, parental capacities, and general diagnostic clarification. Each evaluation helps to provide a comprehensive explanation of the individual’s functioning and recommendations to assist with moving forward.

Leah Kuepper, OTR/PTA

Play is very important for children to participate in and also their primary occupation.  Through play, children learn skills and develop interests that later affect choices and success in work and leisure.  This is where development of sensory integration, physical abilities, cognitive and language skills, and interpersonal relationships occur.  Children learn about roles and how to become productive members of society through play.

               

As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist with a Master’s degree and a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I address the areas that impact a child’s occupation.  My role as an Occupational Therapist is holistic.  I identify the child’s occupational performance, analyze the physical demands and social expectations of the child’s home environment, school and community settings including the child’s participation.  After assessing the areas of occupation most important to the family and child, I further assess the child’s performance skills and patterns necessary for participation in everyday activities.  I address behavior problems, sensory processing, self-cares, social and emotional development, coordination deficits, fine motor delays, strength, range of motion, motor planning deficits, balance and mobility, and vision.  Through purposeful and meaningful play-based interactive intervention, with play again being our children’s occupation, I facilitate an individualized just right challenge to promote independence within the child.

Claire Rosen, MS, OTR/L

Play is the most important “occupation” for a child and it is the foundation of all developmental skills.  Fostering a child’s ability to play, attend and learn by supporting or treating his/her weaknesses is a passion of mine.  As an OT I am able to help children better learn to regulate their nervous system to allow for improved frustration tolerance, attention, emotional control and participation in daily life skills.  Through play we also improve fine motor and gross motor coordination, strength and visual perceptual skills building confidence along the way.  To be able to help children live their life to their full potential is rewarding for me.

I have a variety of certifications and areas of specialty surrounding sensory processing, attention and behavioral concerns.  I am certified in The Therapeutic Listening Program and also use principals from a variety of Sensory Integration Theorists.  I believe in treating the whole child and that each child is unique.  Through my experience it is clear that there are many answers to solve problems.  Therefore, success is best found by getting to know the child and his/her environment in which they thrive and focus on his/her strengths.
